It looks like Diablo Immortal is getting some testing in Australia, with a limited technical alpha test. Which in translation means small scale testing.

Blizzard have certainly upped their marketing game ahead of BlizzCon and there are two Diablos in the works at the moment.

Diablo Immortal is the mobile side of the franchise, and its testing will include a hefty slice of the game. It won't have all the classes, but the majority is there - Barbarian, Monk, Demon Hunter and Wizard.

Don't get excited yet, though, as Blizzard are still tweaking the leveling feel. In other words, we still have a lot to go, but so far - it's the biggest chunk of the game we've seen. 

Blizzard nested the new storyline between the events Diablo 2 and 3, and will feature new and familiar places. There will be a bunch of side dungeons and bosses to beat, and the traditional truckload of items to customise your loadouts with. 

Hopefully, someone from Down Under leaks some footage to see whether Blizzard indeed achieved a playable Diablo on mobile, and this is what we suspect will happen.

Blizzard officially promised Diablo Immortal will be fully free to play, without energy-based limiting or anything of the sort. 

"The Worldstone lies shattered, yet great power remains within its corrupted fragments. Power that Diablo’s minions hope to harness to bring about the return of the Lord of Terror.

The Archangel Tyrael is presumed dead, and mankind is left to deal with the aftermath of his actions. Fragments of the corrupted Worldstone taint the land, bringing forth ancient evils who are looking to harvest the stone’s power and use it to control humanity."
