Diablo Immortal first on the App Store

Diablo Immortal is first in the ranking on the App Store, a sign of the great interest of gamers for the title, despite the difficulties of development and post-announcement problems. Blizzard took this opportunity to thank everyone who downloaded it.

"Immortality achieved. Thank you for making Diablo Immortal first on the App Store."

Of course we are talking about the initial success of the game and we need to check if it will be able to maintain it in the coming months, which then is the goal of every live service with reward boxes. Meanwhile, we can say that all the controversies of the past years have been overcome, that is, they have not greatly influenced the interest of the public, which so far has been very high.

Let's read the official description of Diablo Immortal, taken from Battle.net :

Evil persists

Set between the events of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III, Diablo Immortal throws you into a fragmented world that is trying to recover. With the Archangel Tyrael left for dead and the fragments of the Worldstone still tainting the earth, the fate of Sanctuary rests in the hands of the bravest adventurers. You will have to dedicate yourself completely to the cause in order not to bring humanity under the blows of the Flaming Hells.

Diablo Immortal offers players their choice of six different classes. Your class determines how you'll play the game, including which abilities you can learn, which stats matter to your character, and most importantly what all that badass armor looks like by the end of the game. 

Once you start the game, your first step is choosing a class. Here's a quick breakdown of each class available at launch.

  • Barbarian: Buff, bulky bruisers, barbarians spend their time in the thick of battle, using their abilities to carve through enemies.
  • Crusader: Warriors of faith, crusaders wade into the frontlines with heavy armor and holy magic.
  • Demon Hunter: Nimble fighters, demon hunters use arrows, traps and high mobility to slay their foes from a distance.
  • Monk: Masters of fist and spirit, monks use a combination of dodges and abilities fueled with divine energy.
  • Necromancer: Magical summoners who can raise the dead and command them to fight, blurring the lines between life and death.
  • Wizard: Strong but squishy magic users who fight with a versatile arcane arsenal. 
  • You'll be able to change your class after you start the game, so you aren't locked into one specific class. Play around and see what feels fun to play -- whether that's a melee or ranged fighter, a physical fighter or a magical user, or an undead puppeteer. 

    Customize your Diablo character

    Once you choose your class, you'll have the option to select the way your character looks. You can choose from a few pre-generated options, or dive deep into the character creator to choose your skin tone, hair style, hair color, and a wide range of facial feature sliders. These customizations are purely cosmetic and don't affect your gameplay.

    Screenshot Blizzard/CNETDiablo Immortal gameplay basics

    The Diablo games use a third-person isometric view, with players using movement, basic attacks and other abilities to mow down waves of hellish minions and demons. On mobile, you'll move by dragging a finger across a virtual joystick in the bottom left of the screen. Your attacks, abilities and other interactions (like picking up items and talking to other characters) are mapped out on the bottom right side of the screen. The core gameplay involves moving around a map and attacking enemies.

    But if you want to take on the Lords of Hell, you'll need more than just moving and slashing. You'll need to make use of items and abilities to fight your way through the demonic legions.


    Each class unlocks new skills as it levels up. You can equip up to three skills in addition to your basic attack and ultimate ability. The abilities you equip determine how your character fights, whether that's with aggressive leaps, wide swings or long-range blasts of damage. Try out different combinations of abilities to see what interactions you can find -- it's tempting to just use whichever skills you've most recently unlocked, but you may find fun combos by mixing and matching with older abilities.

    As you battle enemies, you'll find weapons and various types of armor that will increase your stats. All items have a score, which tells you relatively how strong that item is -- the higher the score, the bigger the boost to your power. Some items may also offer bonuses to different stats, allowing you to further customize your character. Want to tank more damage? Equip something that boosts your vitality. Want to avoid it in the first place? Stock up on dexterity boosts. You can spread the stats bonuses around or min-max to your heart's content.

    Screenshot Blizzard/CNETIs Diablo Immortal free to play?

    The biggest difference between Diablo Immortal and its predecessors? Microtransactions. The game is free to play, but at various points in the game, you'll be prompted with the opportunity to trade money for in-game items. In fact, these microtransactions kept the game from releasing in Belgium and the Netherlands because it didn't clear their anti-lootbox laws.

    You don't need to pay to progress through the game, but those microtransactions are realistically necessary if you want to grind for the optimal endgame items and PvP. 

    Diablo Immortal is out on Android, iOS and in open beta for PC.
