Diablo Immortal Closed Beta Test Starts Today, Adding Necromancer and more

Diablo Immortal, the mobile take of Blizzard’s popular action RPG series, will enter the closed beta phase of Android devices in some regions starting today, October 28th. This is an important milestone for the game as this latest version adds some key content such as necromancer classes, previews of controller support, and the ability to spend real money.

This new closed beta test will be available to “some participants” in Canada and Australia from 5 pm on October 28th. Blizzard will be expanded to other regions such as South Korea, Japan and China. Nothing is said about when US players will be able to play. The full release is set for the first half of 2022. Blizzard said he is working on implementing feedback from Immortal’s closed alpha test.

Participants in the beta will have access to the new Necromancer character class. This will bring you back from the previous game. Like them, it focuses on casting bone-centric skills and resurrecting dead enemies as minions. Check out the trailer above for the taste of what a necromancer can do.

PvP is also the focus of the updates that come with this beta, with the addition of the Battle Ground Ladder, but the big focus is on the Cycle of Strife. Shadow players can fight each other and eventually go to a mode called PvP mode in the endgame called “Challenge of Human” where 30 shadow players fight one immortal.

There are also some tweaks in PvE that allow you to choose a bounty, elderlift, or dungeon to move forward towards a battle pass that houses rewards previously only available in bounties. Challenge lifts are now also referred to as the “core” part of gear progression. High-end lifts are the only source or specific upgrade material you want to get in the end. The Helliquary boss is also becoming a raid with eight players.

Using touch screen controls in games like this can sound unpleasant. That’s why Blizzard is working on implementing controller support. Blizzard warns that it’s still working, but its features are being first rolled out as part of this beta. You can control the character and fight with the controller, but the menu that contains the inventory currently requires a touch screen. More mobile controllers will be supported with the release of Immortal, but at this time support is limited to:

  • Xbox One Wireless Bluetooth Controller
  • Xbox Series X | S Bluetooth Controller
  • Xbox Elite Controller Series 2
  • Xbox adaptive controller
  • Sony dualshock 4
  • Razer Kishi

Also note that Android players can access in-game purchases with real money. Eternal Orbs and other items used to purchase consumables such as Empowered Battle Passes and Crests will be on sale. If you buy these, you won’t be able to access them at the start of the final game, but the money you choose to spend will be available at that time. For example, if you spend $ 10 during the beta period, you can spend $ 10 on the final game content.

You can check the required Android specifications below to see if you can play the game. This launch is in the midst of a lawsuit facing Activision Blizzard. Activision Blizzard claims widespread sexual harassment and other discrimination in the company.
