Diablo: Immortal is out now for both PC and mobile – and it’s coming to both platforms on June 2nd.
The MMO was originally only announced for Android and iOS, but Blizzard Entertainment revealed in a blog post that a PC port will also be released in open beta alongside the mobile version.
Cross-play and cross-progression will be available instantly in both versions, meaning players on mobile can play alongside those on PC and users can seamlessly continue their gameplay when switching platforms. In the PC version, classic mouse and keyboard support will be available in addition to controller support.
Blizzard said in another blog post dedicated to the development of the PC version that the port will “feel a little different than other PC Diablo games” for longtime fans, since the game was originally only planned to be brought to mobile do.
The PC version is therefore “an experiment”, which is why it only starts as a beta and not as a full version. “It’s important for us to assure you that Immortal will offer an uncompromising AAA mobile experience when played on a Windows PC,” the post reads.
Blizzard chose this version when it decided that many fans would try to emulate the mobile game on PC anyway and would rather create a fully functional, native version than see players struggling through an inferior experience.
