The release date for Blizzard‘s Diablo Immortal has been confirmed, with the game arriving on June 2nd for iOS and Android devices, as well as PC (in open beta form). What is the difference between the PC version and the mobile version? Game Informer debuted over 27 minutes of new footage, as well as an interview with game director Wyatt Cheng and GM/head of the franchise Rod Fergusson, who were both there.
It was mentioned in the interview that, in terms of content and user interface, the PC edition is nearly identical to the mobile version. The goal of holding an open beta for PC is to gather further feedback from players on how to proceed with the game’s development. Post-launch, there will be more content in the shape of new stories, new dungeons, new classes, and so on, all of which will be available for free.
Crossplay and cross-progression will also be supported in Diablo Immortal, letting players smoothly transfer their progress across mobile and PC platforms. Pre-registration for future betas is presently open, so keep an eye out for additional information in the coming months.
When compared to the core titles, Diablo Immortal is designed to be played in shorter periods of time. Due to the MMO nature of the game, however, there are also raids (for both 48 and eight-player groups), PvP via the Battleground, and much more, as well as Challenge Rifts and Bounties, among other things.
