World of Warcraft: Classic Demo Limits Play to 60 Minutes

How do you feel about Diablo Immortal? In a blog post two weeks ago, Blizzard all but said as much, telling fans that the highly anticipated Diablo III sequel would not be at this year's convention.

There will be nine outdoors areas in which to explore and fight for the game's initial launch, and you can expect to encounter lots of new creatures never before seen in a Diablo game. Anyone who downloads the game through the Battle.net client will get to keep it forever - the ideal way to dip your toes in and get a taste of life as a Guardian if you haven't played yet.

For those that don't know: Diablo Immortal takes place between Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III, and is a massively multiplayer online action-rpg that Blizzard pitches as a "true Diablo hack-and-slash adventure".

However, there have been some mixed opinions from fans over Diablo's new iteration, with some fans worrying that the mobile format will mean microtransactions. We've embedded Blizzard's official BlizzCon 2018 stream VOD above, but if you want to save yourself some time, read on for all the biggest announcements and trailers from the show.

Everything Blizzard: All the news about the video game company and their franchises. Players with active WoW subscriptions will be able to play Classic WoW for free upon release, although it is not due for release until Summer 2019. After they wipe out the enemy forces, they're joined by several other characters (the remaining Diablo III classes) as Diablo emerges from a huge cloud of smoke. There will be other extras in the future for Warcraft 3, Diablo 3, Starcraft and Starcraft 2.

Blizzard kicks off BlizzCon today, and hot off the heels of the Diablo 3 Nintendo Switch release (our review) is the next addition to the Diablo franchise: Diablo Immortal, coming to mobile devices on Android and iOS. It features six classes as well as new abilities, enemies, and zones entirely new to the Diablo series. The talk focused on games across Blizzard Entertainment's portfolio-along with a huge freebie from its corporate siblings at Bungie.
