"Immortal will feel familiar and intuitive to both today's mobile gaming audience and those who played Diablo on console".

If you are a fan of the Diablo series from Blizzard (now Blizzard/Activision) and have been hoping that maybe, some day, a full-featured game would land on iOS devices in the future, that wait is nearly over.

In a move that probably very little people saw coming Blizzard announced the new Diablo project is titled Diablo: Immortal and it will be coming to mobile devices.

Check out some Diablo Immortal gameplay footage, below. The game launches in 2019, and comes with the popular World Editor tool, and support.

In their quest to cleanse Sanctuary, players will embark on all manner of thrilling expeditions, including taking part in dynamic events across unique public zones, and hacking and slashing their way through instanced dungeons. One Blizzcon attendee asked the presenters on stage during a Q and A whether or not Diablo Immortal, the new Diablo Mobile game, was a joke. Same goes for the gameplay trailer below, showing the basic mobile controls and UI on top of what looks like a rehash of Diablo 3.

Liquids production rose six percent, as growth in North America more than offset decline and higher downtime. For example, should the world lose Iran's 2.7 million barrels per day, OPEC may not be able to fill the gap.

Advertised as a full Diablo experience available to everyone on their phones, Immortal will bring back the classes Barbarian, Monk, Wizard, Demon Hunter, Crusader, and Necromancer.

Cheng responded to claims that Diablo: Immortal may be a reskin by saying the following: "We've been working with NetEase Games from the beginning as a partnership to create everything in Diablo: immortal".

Blizzard's Classic Games division is dedicated to refurbishing timeless titles from the studio's history and modernizing them for a new audience. With Diablo Immortal, players have access to half a dozen character classes and a "constantly evolving experience". Oddly enough, the Witch Doctor from Diablo III seems to have been omitted, though more classes could be added later.
