Players will be able to choose from six classes when creating a character in Diablo Immortal, including a Barbarian, Monk, Demon Hunter and Wizard, among others.
Diablo Immortal is an upcoming free-to-play video game. It forms part of the popular Diablo series, however, it is specifically designed for mobile devices.
The massively popular multiplayer online action role-playing (MMORPG) takes place between the events of Diablo II and Diablo III. The game is planned for release on iOS and Android in the first half of 2022.
In the game, players can create a character to explore the world of Diablo. When creating a character, players can select one of the six available character classes: Wizard, Monk, Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Necromancer and Crusader. Each class features 12 unlockable skills; however, players can only choose five skills to use concurrently.
Wizards are described as rebellious academics who are living conduits of arcane power. They can manipulate arcane forces to strike from a distance or disintegrate their enemies to oblivion. Wizards are also able to freeze their enemies until their bodies shatter or burn into charred remains.
The Monk is a swift, sacred warrior and a master of martial arts. They are known for their peerless mobility and their lightning-fast strikes. Monks are able to pummel hit their enemies with a dizzying array of blows.
Barbarians are seen as savage wanderers and mighty weapons experts. They are the survivors of a disaster that struck Mount Arreat. Barbarians use powerful weapons and brutal attacks to crush their enemies.
A Demon Hunter is a vengeful stalker and crossbow-wielding expert. They are relentless beings that assault from afar. Demon Hunters are seen as trained slayers, however, they hold a tragic past. Their families were destroyed by the denizens of the Burning Hells. Demon Hunters strike undeterred until their enemies are at their mercy.
Necromancers are described as the commanders of the dead. They have the ability to manipulate life and death. Necromancers seek to bring balance to the world, and they use their powers to keep Sanctuary free of both demonic and heavenly influences.
Crusaders are unbending champions of faith and law. Faith is seen as a Crusader’s ultimate weapon. They strike with cruel flails and wear impenetrable armour. Crusaders travel the land and vanquish evil wherever they go. They are known to dominate the battlefield through sheer purpose.
It has yet to be announced how many characters players will be able to create. It is believed that players will be able to create more than one character.
