Diablo Immortal was developed in cooperation with NetEase and was announced in Blizzcon this weekend (last weekend). He records the debut of the classic mobile version. Blizzard expresses a new game as an MMO. This experience aims to "live, breathe, constantly evolve."
New plotlines, character classes, loot items, challenges will be added regularly, making Diablo Immortal a game that can play for many years.
