A new mobile Diablo game, Diablo: Immortal, was announced at BlizzCon today. It’s being developed in conjunction with NetEase and occurs shortly after the events of Diablo 2. It’s a top-notch, full Blizzard quality experience for Android and iOS.
The story starts with a demon named Skarn, who “gathers fragments of the corrupted Worldstone [to] use them to resurrect Diablo.” Whether he succeeds we don’t yet know, although Diablo is in a lot of the art and is the namesake. The story will continue to develop with regular updates.
Fans can pre-register for a chance to participate in beta, as well as “earn exclusive in-game rewards.” Learn more on the official site, and stay tuned for the Diablo: What’s Next panel for more information later today!

RETURN TO SANCTUARY LIKE NEVER BEFORE
Eight Unique Zones & Seven Instanced Dungeons
Forge your own path through Sanctuary as you venture through places such as the jungle island of Bilefen, the Library of Zoltun Kulle, and the Shassar Sea—then visit the hub city of Westmarch to rest, trade with merchants, access your stash, and socialize with other players.
Face a Terrifying New Foe
The demon known as Skarn, Herald of Terror—once Diablo’s most powerful lieutenant—is rallying a new demonic army. Skarn intends to gather the fragments of the corrupted Worldstone and use them to resurrect Diablo and reignite the Eternal Conflict.

SLAY DEMONS WHEREVER YOU GO
Designed for Mobile
Diablo: Immortal is being designed from the ground-up to give you an authentic Diablo experience on touchscreen devices. Directional controls make moving around intuitive, and activating a skill is as easy as holding your thumb down on its icon to aim, then releasing it to unleash hell on your foes. Meanwhile, recently looted items can be equipped with a single tap on the screen.
A Massively Multiplayer World in Your Pocket
Join your fellow demon slayers to delve into deep, treacherous dungeons. Drop in or out of groups easily and engage in dynamic events all over the world, teaming up with other heroes as you take down Skarn’s minions—and reap their powerful rewards.
