While Diablo Immortal is the show’ mobile introduction, Principal Design Chief Wyatt Cheng verified during a demonstration for the game it won’t be coming to PC anytime soon.
Nevertheless, it’s improbable that the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch would find the match . Traditionally, NetEase has remained away from PC and console growth. No Diablo Immortal launch date has been revealed just yet, though Blizzard claims it would be coming’soon’ having an upcoming beta test on the way.
Gameplay for Diablo Immortal seems recognizable to Arena of Valor with the use of virtual buttons. There’s no Diablo Immortal price yet though given NetEase’s expertise in free-to-play games, we will not be surprised to see Diablo Immortal be a free-to-play game with micro-transactions.
Interestingly, it appears that Diablo Immortal focusses on participant choice and touts drop-in, drop-out gameplay. Familiar classes such as the monk, demon hunter, and necromancer were present in the game’s trailer.
