Diablo Immortal Review

Blizzard Entertainment, the known developer and publisher of Diablo, has recently brought forward another release Diablo Immortal. The latest title in the line of the Diablo series is a combination of old and new features of the game.

The overview

Diablo Immortal is undoubtedly a massive and richly produced entry by the franchise. The layout and ambiance are great, evolving the action role-playing model presented in Diablo III. The entire game space accurately aligns with the hardware for which the developer has originally designed it. Therefore, it evokes a good balance of enticement and power. This means you can continue to hunt down the better tools while having a substantial feel of power over the play. As a result, we can say that although Diablo Immortal is another good game in the franchise, you cannot play it with the same obsessive tempo as you could in prior titles. The main reason behind the scenario is the number of barriers that can force some of your time away from it on a regular basis.

The storyline

Blizzard’s latest release Diablo Immortal is a bridge in the gap between Diablo 2 and 3. The plot centers on the World stone. We have seen the stone shattered at the end of Diablo 2. Another revelation at the end of game 2 was of Skarn, Lord of Damnation, a new villain in the story. In the Immortal version, evil entities have found pieces of the shattered World stone and used them for their nefarious purposes. Players have to track them down to stop Skarn from dominating. The story line also reveals new villains and Skarn’s allies for more challenges when you are collecting World stone shards to progress.

Since the story exists between Diablo II and III, you will see several familiar faces, providing some context of the prior events. You will grasp the context by the time you will reach Tristram at the beginning of the final core title.

Another change in the story is that Deckard Cain is back. And he had to be. It was anticipated. Another new evil has entered the story, threatening to misuse World stone shards to wreak havoc.

As for story conversations, they are fully voiced. It gives a premium feel to the Immortal as previous titles had on PC. There is actually nothing to suggest that the new release is anything less than the last titles. The large open spaces are fun to explore. While numerous activities and side quests will add to the challenge as you progress in the story.

Moreover, you will see that a dungeon commonly bookends each act of the story. You can complete these dungeons alone or with up to three players through matchmaking. They are jam-packed with creatures that you will have to kill to progress. The climactic boss battles are added visual spectacle, providing you with significant loot rewards on completing the battles.

The progression

You can replay the mission infinitely with higher difficulty modifiers. It will simultaneously increase the challenge and rewards while providing a substantial experience added to traditional progression.

Moreover, you will require daily bounties, side missions, and codex missions after level 30 because the main story progression halts at this stage. Missions start requires you to be at a certain level to play them. At a later stage, the game areas will have higher challenges in the form of monsters beyond your capabilities. It means you will not be able to beat them without the bonus gear and power.

In the Diablo Immortal, you will see new characters, zones, and activities as the story progresses. For instance, you can only reach events like the Ancient Arena after getting to level 60. However, you can access this level only after progressing and completing the main story.

The verdict

Despite some noticeable difficulty and issues with maxing out characters, the new title, Diablo Immortal, is very enjoyable. It offers a variety of options for XP grinding and gear. Dungeons, events, hidden lairs, PvP fights, and other activities add up to make Immortal more fun. It is more interesting for casual players who are less focused to compete vigorously in the game.

The major downside of the game is for those who are focused on competing and establishing a top build. The competitive players will most probably need to put a lot of time and money into their character strengthening. The Immortal is fun. However, there are some flaws that we cannot ignore, and they will hurt your gaming experience. The plus point is the side quests, campaign missions, and other activities to complete at the start of the game. They will give you a lot of variety in the early phase.
