With Tyrael presumed dead and the fractured Worldstone corrupting Sanctuary with its evil, the heroes will have to strap on their armor once more to fight off the hordes of Hell.

Diablo Immortal: Classes

A few familiar faces will be making their way back into the Diablo Immortal fray. Most of Diablo 3’s classes are making a return, with the mysterious Witch Doctor currently poised as the only character to remain unique to Diablo 3.

Gameplay

Of course, Diablo is going to look pretty different on mobile. While controller support is being added, the vast majority of players will be using, well, their fingertips.

With players being able to set up shop in city centers like Westmarch, you’ll be able to form parties, take on dungeons, and trade your spoils, creating a community environment like never before.

Iconic villains such as Leoric the Skeleton King and Baal, Lord of Destruction, returning to the game, players will have to take down these familiar foes, as well as new creatures like Manoruk and the Glacial Colossus.

Tasked with ridding the world of this demonic scourge, your character will be able to explore the dangers that lurk within Diablo 2’s Dark Wood, the mysteries of the Ashwold Cemetery, and even take to the streets of the bustling metropolis, Westmarch.
