DIABLO IMMORTAL BLIZZCON UPDATE


While we thought we'd see more exciting news about Diablo Immortal this year at Blizzon 2019, the updates that have been provided have been pretty lackluster. Below are the updates from the official Blizzard post about the game ( https://news.blizzard.com/en-us/diablo3/23189674/diablo-immortal-update ):

What classes will be playable in Diablo Immortal?

Currently, we have six classes planned for players to select in Diablo Immortal: Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard.

What’s New for Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon 2019?

Last year’s demo revealed the Barbarian, Monk, and Wizard, playable in a streamlined dungeon experience. This year, attendees will also be able to take the Demon Hunter for a spin (or Strafe) through a slice of open-world gameplay through the town of Wortham and the outdoor zone of Ashwold Cemetary.




We’ve added a new base game mechanic: Ultimate Abilities. All classes gain charge for their chosen Ultimate by using basic attacks. Once this charge has been built up, players can choose to augment their basic attack for a short time in a face-meltingly powerful display of strength, guile, or raw magical potential.


We’re also sharing a first look at our equipment system, including the first batch of skill-altering Legendary items. Turn your Scorch’s burning fireball into an icy Frozen Orb, change up how Exploding Palm targets foes and dishes out damage, or transform deadly arrows into grenades when using Strafe.



There’s no better way to check it out than watching the action, so be sure to watch our latest gameplay trailer:


QUESTIONS?

We might not have an answer to all your questions, but we tackled a few of the more common ones below. If we don’t have an answer for you now, it’s very likely your topic is still in active development. We’ll have additional information to share as it becomes available.

Q: When will I be able to play Diablo Immortal?

A: We don’t have a release date to announce at this time. It takes significant time to meet the Blizzard quality level we’re aiming for, and we have a lot of ambitious goals for Diablo Immortal. Keep a close eye on Diablo channels for upcoming news and Pre-Register for testing opportunities here.

Q: Will there be microtransactions in Diablo Immortal? How will Diablo Immortal be priced?

A: We’re focused on building a great Diablo game first. That said, we know the business model is top of mind for lots of people out there and we’re taking the time to get it right. It’s too early to share details, but we want to make a Diablo game players love and to support it for years to come. We plan to achieve that by creating an ecosystem that accounts for and welcomes every type of player—from our most die-hard Diablo veterans to those who’ll be exploring Sanctuary for the first time.

Q: What will support for Diablo Immortal look like after launch?

A: Diablo Immortal is planned from the ground up for ongoing content and events. After launch, expect continued support and regular content updates including balance changes, new zones, dungeons, bosses, loot, additional stories, and even new classes!

RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 HAVING ISSUES ON PC

Red Dead Redemption 2 has not had a great PC launch so far. With launcher troubles to game-breaking performance issues, this port has been a bit of a mess for Rockstar. The game certainly looks better than it ever did on console, but hitting a consistent 60 FPS seems to take a pretty expensive PC rig.
