While some regions received it one day earlier, Diablo Immortal is now available globally for mobile players. The Open Beta version for Windows PCs is also surfacing today, although it will probably lose most of its players to Diablo 4 once that title hits the market (hopefully next year).

Designed primarily for mobile devices and announced in late 2018, Diablo Immortal is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online action role-playing game that features cross-save functionality. Just as one would expect from a title signed by Blizzard, the player's progress is linked to the Battlenet account.

Diablo Immortal retains the art style of Diablo III and shares quite a few gameplay similarities with it, such as destructible environments and the isometric graphic style that is common to all the games in the series. However, the overall tone of the game brings it closer to the gloomy world of Diablo II. The story is set half a decade after the Diablo II events, and prior to Diablo III.

Although the game was planned for a 2019 release, quite a few delays pushed its launch all the way to this month. Now, players can finally enjoy growing up their characters while engaging in various solo activities, but they can also team up in Warbands of up to 8 players, join clans, or take part in various competitive player-versus-player events.  

The Google Play page of the game already shows over one million downloads with a 4.7 rating after 159K user reviews. The Apple App Store seems to be a less friendly place for this title, with a score of 3.9 after 651 ratings (and just a few downloads overall compared to the Android version so far, obviously).
