A new Diablo chapter, Diablo Immortal, arriving on Android soon

Overwatch Hero 29 to be revealed TODAY during Blizzcon 2018 opening ceremony

While Diablo Immortal looks like many other mobile action RPGs, it features all of the polish of any Blizzard game, and more importantly, it delves into the untold histories of the Diablo franchise.

At BlizzCon 2018, Blizzard announced when you can play World of Warcraft Classic.

It's not. The team says the game is only coming to iOS and Android for now, and it's doubling down on the choice to keep this game mobile.

There will be several recognizable characters and classes returning to the game such as the Barbarian, Monk, Wizard, Crusader, Demon Hunter and Necromancer. In "Diablo Immortal" the story picks up after the events of the "Diablo II" expansion, "Lord of Destruction", wherein the World Stone has been shattered into fragments by the hand of the angel Tyrael. The game will take place somewhere in the 20-year span between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3, and will revisit some of those games' locations. Diablo Immortal won't just pay lip service to old Diablo games with lands both new and old, though. "We're walking around with full-fledged gaming devices in our pocket and we want to make a full-fledged game for mobile".

Apart from updated visuals and animations, Blizzard have upgraded the game with many UI and QoL improvements.

There were a record 7.1 million job openings in the economy in August, compared with only some 6.2 million unemployed. Wage growth was boosted by a surge in transportation and warehousing, likely reflecting a shortage of truck drivers.

Travellers will be questioned by AI lie detectors at the European Union border
If there's additional concern, their biometric data will be taken, and be handed off to a human agent who will assess the case. For those who pass the test, they'll receive a QR code that will let them pass through.

Palestinians slam ‘provocative’ Brazil embassy move to Jerusalem
The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem , which was captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war, as the capital of a future state. The embassy move squarely aligns Bolsonaro with US President Donald Trump, and bolsters his image as a "Tropical Trump".

It includes online multiplayer where players can choose to play as any of the game's six classes and traverse brand new dungeons and zones. When you download the game you will have the option to link your battle.net account and bring your friends list to mobile.

It's a hard pill for many to swallow as Diablo 3 released in 2012 so fans were expecting the logical next step forward for the franchise to be Diablo 4.

At the moment, there's no word of a when the game will release, but Blizzard has confirmed it won't be coming to PC, which also likely means it won't be shipping to consoles either.

Blizzard's Classic Games division is dedicated to refurbishing timeless titles from the studio's history and modernizing them for a new audience.
