We finally have a launch date for Diablo Immortal and it’s on June 2. While it’s going to be released in most regions worldwide, some regions in Asia-Pacific only get access a few weeks later.

In addition to launching on the mobile platform, the game is entering Open Beta for PC on the launch date. It’s going to support both cross-play and cross-progression, which means that heroes called upon by Sanctuary can join the fight regardless of the platform they’re using. They can also seamlessly transition between mobile and PC gameplay. The Open Beta for PC will have all features, including cross-play and cross-progression. Once the Open Beta ends, all progress is going to be maintained.

In the game, the Worldstone has been shattered and it’s now up to the heroes of Sanctuary to fend off the terrors rising in its wake. Players need to hunt down the shattered pieces of the corrupted Worldstone before the forces of the Burning Hells can get and use them for their own sinister plans. The story is set sometime between the events of Diablo II and Diablo III.

It has players choose between six iconic classes: Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, or Wizard. There will be eight unique zones in addition to the great city of Westmarch. Joining the heroes are some familiar characters like Deckard Cain. Of course, there will also be new ones that players can meet.

Diablo Immortal is set to feature a massively multiplayer online action-RPG social experience that’s completely new to the franchise. Players get to share a massive world with others as they explore Sanctuary, form Warbands with up to eight members to take on group challenges such as the intense Helliquary raid bosses, and join Clans with up to 150 friends to earn challenging Clan Achievements. Of course, it won’t be complete without PvP and in this game, it’s going to be faction-based.

With the Cycle of Strife, players can form a team to fight in an ongoing war in which the top player of the server earns the Eternal Crown to become the leader of the Immortals. This puts players in the position of having to continuously defend their reign across a series of modes including brutal 1v30 showdowns.

In a statement, Blizzard Entertainment president Mike Ybarra shared that the demons of the Burning Hells are more than ready to be slain in what could be the most expansive Diablo game released by Blizzard. This is the first game to be designed by Blizzard from the ground up for mobile. According to Ybarra, it was important to them to deliver an experience that’s worthy of the franchise. He shared that they conducted a lot of testing, incorporated a lot of feedback, and created a game that they’re excited to share with players.
