Diablo Immortal is a mobile spin-off of popular series of RPG action games called Diablo. The game was developed by a Chinese company NetEase which specializes in free-to-play productions aimed at the East Asian market, as well as an American studio Blizzard Entertainment, responsible for the creation of the brand. Diablo Immortal was announced in early November 2018 at the BlizzCon Convention.
The story presented in Diablo Immortal takes place between events known from Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III. The Archangel Tyrael is considered dead, and after the destruction of the Worldstones, the remnants of the vile and demonic power that causes further disasters to fall on people are still lurking in shadows. What's more, one of the surviving demons, Skarn, a former Diablo's lieutenant, decides to build a new army of hellish servants and collect shards which will allow him to bring back the ancient evil.
Diablo Immortal remains a classic action RPG, in which the game is presented in isometric view. Compared to the original from the PC and consoles, the game features a different control scheme - players use the touch screen to move the characters, and press dedicated icons to attack. The title offers a total of six character classes, each with several unique special abilities. While playing, we fight dozens of monsters, explore locations representing different corners of the Sanctuary, where we have to face huge bosses at the end. Along the way we find or buy new equipment, affecting the strength of our hero.
In addition to playing alone, we can join forces with players from all over the world, fighting together against hordes of enemies and bosses.
Diablo Immortal's audiovisual fetures are similar to that of Diablo III. The game uses a stylized, comic-style graphics. Music and sound effects are also very similar to those used in the third Diablo.
