Diablo: Immortal will go dungeon crawling on Android; pre-register now

Near the end of the opening ceremony for Blizzard's annual BlizzCon convention Friday, the company announced that the next game in the series would debut on a completely new platform: mobile devices. The new Diablo Immortal mobile game may not have been what fans were expecting, but the response by fans during the question and answer session is rude and uncalled for. The Worldstone lies shattered, yet great power remains within its corrupted fragments. BlizzCon's Diablo Immortal announcement was the last thing most core fans of the franchise wanted.

The boss fights look interesting, the levels look more dynamic than ever before, and, to be frank, I like the Diablo Immortal aesthetic more than I like Diablo 3's aesthetic. It will include touch controls which will allow players to begin an ability, charge it up, aim it, and fire it from just a single thumb input. Dropping in and out of groups will be done seamlessly so it sounds like it'll be a true drop-in drop-out kind of game.

The Diablo III game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, and the Rise of the Necromancer pack are all part of the Eternal Collection: 7 classes, 5 acts, and seasons' worth of demon-smashing.

Next we were shown some brief gameplay clips.
