In fact, it nearly looks identical to Diablo 3 in terms of graphics and gameplay. Diablo Immortal is a truly mobile game for those who love to play on the go with their smartphones.

If you think I'm being a bit bombastic with my initial rhetoric over Diablo Immortal, the cinematic trailer above is now sitting at less than 5% likes at the time of this post going live. Diablo Immortal is being developed by Blizzard in collaboration with NetEase, the studio behind PUBG clone Rules of Survival.

The Wizard fighting against a big ol' demon. Created to be a living, breathing, and constantly evolving experience, Diablo Immortal will regularly introduce new storylines, new playable character classes, new loot, and all-new challenges-which you can face side-by-side with your friends. or foolishly choose to confront on your own. Just look at the replies to any recent tweets from the Diablo Twitter account. There was no announcement of a Diablo 2 or Diablo remaster.

Check out some Diablo Immortal gameplay footage, below.

People immediately lashed out, calling the announcement a joke because they think the game is inherently bad and will surely be full of micro-transactions that chip away at the integrity of the series. Through Westmarch, players will visit 9 different outdoor zones, hunting corrupted fragments of the Worldstone and the demons left in their wake. (Here's a peek at the map.) Classes will have 12 skills or more, with the ability for you to assign any five of them at one time to an "active skill button".

You are entitled to nothing.

First you praise the sun, then you praise the money.

This negative response is likely fueled by long-standing rumors and expectations around new Diablo games on the way. Online play will use a modified version of Blizzard's interface. Diablo 3 has pretty much run its course by now, and fans have been clamoring for the next great thing from the franchise.
