The Diablo Immortal China website has been updated with new Class animations and models.
Google Play and the App Store do not share to the public how many players have pre-registered to play Diablo Immortal; but there are other platforms out there that do share the data.
It is this way how we can more or less gauge how popular the mobile game is to fans in certain areas of the globe.
Google Play isn’t pre-installed in most Android devices in Asia.
I was about to write an article about how many mobile users have pre-registered to play Diablo Immortal in Asian markets when I got a surprise sighting that turned the article title around.
I browsed down the page to the comments and found out that the Tap Tap Diablo Immortal account moderator had been very active responding to comments in the past 16 hours and before that.
Vice-president and Executive Producer of the Diablo Franchise Rod Fergusson is scheduled to talk at the Game Developers Conference (GDC 2020).
This will happen days after the ChinaJoy and ATVI Q2 2020 events. If you are a GDC attendee ask him about Diablo IV and Diablo Immortal.
Two Activision Conference Calls ago we have heard of a Diablo Immortal regional test on track for mid-2020.
PezRadar answered a question in his Twitter account, confirming Alpha testing. He won’t say when, but mid-2020 window is closing fast.
Blizzard Entertainment posted a job opening for an Associate 3D Artist to join the Diablo III team.
The description and language used in key terms can be interpreted as something other than Seasons might be in development.
Geoff Keighley had the opportunity to test the PS5 DualSense Controller during the Summer Game Fest 2020 stream.
When: July 17 at 12pm ET/ 9am PT
According to Geoff, the PS5 DualSense controller feels slightly heavier, and heftier than the PS4 DualShock controller.
You can listen to sounds from within the DualSense controller. At one point during the gameplay, Geoff blew air from his mouth into the controller to trigger an action in the game. What the hell?
It can detect different levels of input/pressure from your own breath?
When Geoff navigated through a sandstorm area, he could feel the environment’s tension through the controller, and sand noise through its speakers. You can listen to footsteps too.
With the adaptive triggers, you can move the controller sideways and the character you control in-game moves likewise.
The game will come with all PS5 consoles, free. It is the same demo given to game developers a few weeks ago to demonstrate the capabilities of the PS5 to given them an idea what they can do themselves with all the DualSense features.
The system requirements for Diablo Immortal are yet unknown at the time of this posting, but it is a good idea to take a look at the system requirements of current Activision Blizzard mobile games as kind of a reference.
When I launched my iPad Pro (2018), I searched for a widely known mobile game in the Activision Blizzard portfolio:
Blizzard Entertainment is currently searching to fill two job openings that are critical for the launch of Diablo Immortal (thanks, MrMesli):
