Ever since Diablo was released back in 1996, the action-packed dungeon crawler has remained a staple in the gaming world. Not only did it blow all of the competition away, but it also spawned several imitators from companies looking to recreate the immensely entertaining, dungeon-crawling grind that the Diablo series is now famous for.
After Blizzard was able to capture the hearts of console players when they released Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition, it seemed the game developers could do no wrong. This is probably why their decision to create a mobile version of the classic ARPG, though undoubtedly controversial, didnít completely turn players away. Some players are even excited about their favorite game finally reaching smartphones.
After all, dystopian adventures and post-apocalyptic RPGs are all the rage right now. One of the most successful console games so far this year is the Resident Evil II remake, while popular mobile game Plants vs Zombies continues to draw in more players looking for a quirky take on the end of days. Meanwhile, even the iGaming industry is embracing the fad, with apocalyptic slot game Lost Vegas receiving tons of praise and positive reviews.
That said, casino games always seem to have been ahead of the curve when it comes to creepy fantasy, as well as when it comes to mobile gaming. Jackpotcity is referenced here as having over 400 slots including Immortal Romance, Lost Vegas and several other edgy games. All of these titles are available to play on mobile, giving players on-the-go access to their favorite games wherever and whenever they feel like playing. Really, the iGaming industry is ahead of the game when it comes to mobile gaming and gloomy games, so it's no surprise that massive companies like Blizzard are keen to follow the industry's lead.
Though there is no official release date for the game's release yet, rumor has it that we will see it in both Google Play and Apple Store by the end of 2019. What we do know is that the title is being worked on by leading industry expert NetEase to ensure that the click and slash system Diablo players have come to know and love will translate properly to touchscreen.
As for the story, it's thought that Diablo Immortal will begin five years after the end of Diablo II. That's right: We'll be exploring exactly what happened following the destruction of the Worldstone and finding out how the world of Diablo III got so... miserable. Tyrael, Malthael, Leah and Deckard will all be making appearances, in addition to Valla and Josen, who both previously appeared in Heroes of the Storm. As for enemies, Baal and Skarn are probably going to making appearances during the mobile game.
As if that wasn't exciting enough, apparently Blizzard will be introducing new abilities and techniques that have never appeared in a Diablo game before, and though the six classes will remain the same, they will apparently work together in a variety of new ways.
We're sure more information will come out about the game before it officially reaches smartphones, especially since it's sure to be a big release. For now, though, we'll just have to wait and hope that Blizzard doesn't mess it up.

A fix for the 2.6.4 Patch is now available for players in the Americas. Next time you login, you'll be prompted to download the patch and install.
In this version of the patch there are some important Quality of Live changes that have been added by popular request. Most of these updates have centered around clearer signals for Primal Legendary drops.
There are now 10 additional Armory tabs, 5 more than previously.
Legendary Potions are now indicated in the action bar and can be activated by right-clicking on the icon, whereas previously they were stored in the player inventory.
Great Rift Keystones are now kept in the Materials tab. Any existing Keystones have been automatically been moved from your inventory and stash for you.
Primal Legendaries are now more clearly marked, flagged by a red beam when they drop. They are now shown by a red pentagram icon on the mini-map and they also have a red border and updated background on their icons.
The feedback Blizzard received was that the play during the course of a Greater Rift, where you had to micro-manage Paragon points, wasn't really engaging gameplay. At the same time, it wasn't really consistent with the other requirements for entering the Greater Rift.
Also, the following changes to matchmaking are aimed as making it easier for players to locate groups for Greater Rifts as previously the window between Greater Rifts is usually too small;
Paragon Points can't be swapped when a Greater Rift is active
Players can now be aligned with public games when a Greater Rift is open
Players who join this way won't be allowed to enter the Active Rift, but players already inside it will be allowed to continue with no additional difficulty scaling until the run is over.
The Buff for the Season of Grandeur has been put into place
The Buff gives Seasonal players the legendary power from the Ring of Royal Grandeur and doesn't stack with an additional Ring of Royal Grandeur (whether or equipped or in Kanai's Cube).
Unlike prior Seasonal Buffs, this one won't apply to Non-Seasonal players.
When you finish a Greater Rift level 70 solo for the 1st time in a Season, a Primal Legendary is guaranteed to drop from the Rift Guardian
If we were to sum up this fix, Blizzard are fine-tuning all class sets to improve diversity at higher level (70 and above) rifts.
Most of these parameters have been adjusted based on your feedback and our own observations.
