Blizzard announced one of its new Diablo games at Blizzcon 2018, but it wasn't the big sequel some people wanted.

If you're interested in pre-registering for Diablo: Immortal you can do so here. Because it's a mobile game, of course. Skarn intends to gather the fragments of the corrupted Worldstone and use them to resurrect Diablo.

Specifically, Blizzard said Diablo Immortal would feature large, "shared outdoor zones" where players could explore the overworld and encounter other players online.

Fans have also claimed the game is a reskin of Crusaders of Light, another game by NetEase, which is partnering with Blizzard on the development of Diablo Immortal. If you want to throw your money at the developer in the meantime, you can pre-order the game's $29.99 Standard Edition, or shell out some extra cash for the "Spoils of War Edition" which comes in at $39.99. After they wipe out the enemy forces, they're joined by several other characters (the remaining Diablo III classes) as Diablo emerges from a huge cloud of smoke. The gameplay we got to see during the announcement featured six players playing at once, which is something we've never seen before in a Diablo game.

So what does she say to get herself ready to go out there. "The only thing I can do is write about it, and tweet". "It this is how I go out, I'll take it". "I don't get nervous nervous, but I don't enjoy it".

The massively multiplayer spin-off will allow over a dozen players to fight together with 6 familiar classes.

Since Diablo originated on battle.net Diablo: Immortal will have battle.net integration. This is made possible in "Westmarch", the mobile game's central hub.

The day when everyone was hoping for a Diablo 3 patch on PlayStation 4, has turned into a nightmare for Diablo fans. Why? The Chinese company has previously helped to bring a number of Blizzard's games to China. And reinforcements are always only a tap away thanks to the native Blizzard Battle.net® UI designed specifically for Diablo Immortal, which allows you to chat and form groups easily in the middle of the most frantic battle. Blizzard has not yet announced a release date for the title.
