It's been around two years already since we heard anything about Diablo Immortal. It was first announced in Blizzcon 2018 where it was met with negative reception (because of the hilarious "Do you guys not have smartphones?") but we finally get a real full update. Just a few hours ago, a new Diablo Immortal Facebook page was set up alongside a Development Update video.

Led by Wyatt Cheng, here are some of the important tidbits from the video update. As expected, Diablo Immortal will be a free-to-play mobile game for the iOS and Android platform with in-game item purchases. He also said that the in-game item purchases won't be a "pay-to-win" so everyone can enjoy the mobile game as it is, that include free classes and legendary weapons as well.

 

On top of that, Diablo Immortal is now in technical alpha stage and it's available for testing. However, only a few mobile gamers have access and it's only in Australia. We have to say that the graphics look phenomenon and very reminiscent of Diablo 3. It's said that the story takes place between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3, as well as being able to play together with your friends online. 

You can actually find a couple of gameplay videos on YouTube now. Let us know what you think in the comments below and stay tuned for more mobile game news at TechNave.com.
