Diablo Immortal has been talked about for years, and its release is being more anticipated than ever. Expected to launch globally around the first half of 2022, fans are clamoring with doubts, rumors, and questions.
One of the biggest questions that fans of the Diablo series are pondering on, is if Diablo Immortal is going to adopt a free-to-play experience, or is it going to be another mobile gaming cash grab title like we’ve seen time and time again?
One thing is for sure: Diablo Immortal will be free to download and free to play. Anybody that wants the iconic Diablo experience on the go wherever they go are free to experience the game without tossing a penny to the developers.
But like any other mobile game, Blizzard has opted to add in micro-transactions. You are able to buy in-game currency of Eternal Orbs, which let you purchase Crests that make leveling faster, Reforge Stones for additional rerolls on an item property, and more.
Diablo Immortal also possesses a Battle Pass progression system which allows you to earn rewards through the completion of Seasonal Quests and other activities.
That being said, Blizzard has stated that micro-transactions should never circumvent Diablo’s core gameplay and divert you from the raw gaming experience. To further combat pay-to-win tactics, ‘The Market’ in Diablo Immortal has been revamped with no ability to cash out.
What do you think about Diablo Immortal’s policies? Do you think that the game will eventually turn into a pay-to-win fest like so many other mobile titles? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
