Diablo Immortal is Far From Ready but Will Receive Post-Launch Content
According to Blizzard during BlizzCon 2019, Diablo Immortal will receive support and regular content updates after it releases. The content added may include new zones, dungeons, bosses, loot, additional stories, and even new classes and the support will fix bugs and balance classes, bosses, enemies, etc. Diablo Immortal still doesn’t have an official release date as it’s taking NetEase significant time to meet the Blizzard quality level the company is aiming for with the upcoming MMOARPG mobile title.
Last year’s Diablo Immortal demo included the Barbarian, Monk, and Wizard while this year includes the Demon Hunter. The open-world gameplay that was playable at BlizzCon included the town of Wortham and the outdoor zone of Ashwold Cemetary. One new feature added to Immortal is Ultimate Abilities as each class gains charge for a chosen ability by using the basic attacks. Once the charge is built up, gamers can unleash their Ultimate Ability. This is a fun way the mobile title maintains the unique feel of each class to avoid making them feel the same. A new trailer was released for Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon 2019 and it’s looking a lot better than last year.
When asked about the microtransaction model of Diablo Immortal and how the game will be priced, Blizzard said, “We’re focused on building a great Diablo game first. That said, we know the business model is top of mind for lots of people out there and we’re taking the time to get it right. It’s too early to share details, but we want to make a Diablo game players love and to support it for years to come. We plan to achieve that by creating an ecosystem that accounts for and welcomes every type of player; from our most die-hard Diablo veterans to those who’ll be exploring Sanctuary for the first time.”
