Blizzard announces long-awaited Warcraft 3 remaster at Blizzcon

According to the company, Diablo Immortal is created to provide a "living, breathing, and constantly evolving experience". It'll have six playable classes: Monk, Wizard, Barbarian, Necromancer, Demon Hunter, and Crusader (no love for the Witch Doctor, it seems), controlled with virtual joysticks and onscreen ability buttons. 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.

Blizzard announced a new action-role playing Diablo game is coming to iOS and Android devices, titled Diablo: Immortal. This will be a full-fledged massively multiplayer online action RPG (MMOARPG) for mobile, and graphically speaking, it will look similar to Diablo III.

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.

Blizzcon 2018 (2-3 November) ended up with some spectacular announcements yet polarising responses from the community. "This game should be cancelled and Blizzard should be ashamed of it". You'll still have to buy the Forsaken expansion if you plan to see the newest content, but inviting fresh players by giving away the base game will only benefit its hardcore and soon-to-be fans. If you meet a friend in that overworld, you'll be able to invite them to an instanced dungeon for a more traditional Diablo experience.

The 40-year-old may have made his own fortune here as a player, but he certainly didn't have much on his return as a manager. And it is this game from which Derby can gain confidence, with the Blues switching off defensively at times. "It happens.

At launch the title will feature nine outdoor zones which sounds like Blizzard will continue supporting this game after launch, possibly indicating DLC down the road.

So I just have one thing to say to people who are mad that Blizzard, employing a team that wasn't even working on the main Diablo franchise, made a new Diablo game: Grow up.

In one of the major highlights from today Blizzcon livestream, it was revealed that WoW Classic would have a release date in 2019.

If you count yourself among the previously-mentioned fans who have been holding out for word about Warcraft 4, you're still out of luck.
