Diablo Immortal Beta Sign Up
What is Diablo Immortal?
Diablo Immortal is an upcoming action role-playing hack and slash video game in the Diablo series designed for online multiplayer play on mobile devices. Developed by Blizzard and NetEase, the game was announced in late 2018 and is planned for release on Android and iOS with no set release date.
Immortal is co-developed by Blizzard and NetEase. The latter developer had been Blizzard’s partner for Chinese market releases. Blizzard intended to bring the core Diablo experience to the smartphone platform. As a result, its interfaces reflect choices that would make that experience best fit the medium. By designing for a smartphone gaming audience, Immortal was designed to reach demographics and geographic regions that use mobile phones as their main gaming platform and may not otherwise interact with Diablo on other gaming platforms.
The game is planned for release on Android and iOS platforms. No release date is set. Players can pre-register on the game’s website for admission to playtest the beta. Blizzard also announced plans to keep the Immortal experience fresh after its initial release with the regular addition of stories and characters. The game was announced at the opening ceremony of BlizzCon in November 2018.
On February 21, 2019, NetEase’s CFO, Yang Zhaoxuan, stated that the game was “pretty much ready” and still planned for a 2019 release; however, he stated that Blizzard would be the ones to determine the exact release timetable.
