What s in the closed beta?
The new version of Diablo Immortal comes with numerous improvements and therefore was expanded content. So you can now for the first time as a new class Necromancer try to summon undead minions einheizen your opponents with curses and poisons. This means that all six planned classes implemented that will be playable for the release: barbarian Crusaders, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer and wizards.

It is a faction based PvP system in which two sides competing against each other: the shadows and the immortals. Shadows are grouped into dark houses and compete with each other until the most powerful house the immortals can challenge in a particular battle. Win the shadows, they take the place of the immortals and then enjoy far-reaching benefits until they have to contend contender shadow against the next. In the closed beta there is a new mode in which a particularly powerful Immortal against 30 shadow compete. Lately is also a battle Ranking s also the PvP systems were designed more accessible and better balanced.
Other new features in the Closed Beta
The new set items are intended for secondary equipment slots. Source: Blizzard Many game elements are now to be clearer and easier to understand what we are coming very accommodating: In the Closed Alpha us has Diablo Immortal back and kill again functions as well as Diablo connoisseurs, not every feature transparent at first glance. In addition, Blizzard has incorporated these new features or improved:
Set Items: In Diablo Immortal (, chest shoulder, head, weapon, shield and legs) divided equipment in primary and secondary slots slots (hands, feet, 2x rings, neck and hip). For the secondary slots is now set items, which consist of six parts. If you have collected three parts, there s the first set bonus, the second bonus there only for the complete set. In this way, two different sets of bonuses can be combined.
New levels of difficulty: In the closed beta now you can also play on hell and hell 3 4, which are designed for high Paragonstufen and offer a higher drop chance for high-quality loot.
raids for reliquary of hell: The reliquary is a magical device that you get in the course of the story and can be upgraded several times. It serves as a kind of prison for especially powerful demons that give you special bonuses then. In the Closed Alpha these bosses were hardly to crack, so they have now been transformed into raid bosses that require an eight-member group of players.
More features, more content: In the trailer for the Closed Beta (see above in this article) are also new features such as enhanced legendary equipment and gems to see that you want can be combined in a new way (Gem Resonance). There also seems to Legacy of the Horadrim to give a new dungeon type. yet but explanations of these features are missing.

Diablo Immortal with gamepad playable… and on the PC?
Many players wanted it, now blizzard comes to: Diablo Immortal receives controller support and is then playable with compatible gamepads on the smartphone or tablet. This is also exciting because Diablo Immortal should be compatible with some Android emulators. (We could not check that yet, but there are already appropriate videos.) How it seems, you will be able to play Diablo Immortal – about detours – with a gamepad on the PC. However, the controller support is still limited in the beta. First, you can only direct your game character via GAMEPAD, all menus you need to operate via touchscreen. Also in the Closed Beta only supports these gamepads:
Xbox One Wireless Controller
Xbox Wireless Controller
Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2
Xbox Adaptive Controller
DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller
Real money purchases now available
In the Closed Beta, Blizzard wants to test the Ingame shop for the first time, with which the game should finance long-term. All purchased content is of course losing again at the end of the Closed Beta, as your progress can not be taken into the finished game. However, all expenses will be credited to the end of the beta as credits in your Account. You can then use this balance in the finished game. In this blog entry, Blizzard explains exactly what you can buy in the Ingame Shop. Whether the Free2Play game will be fun without real money use in the long term, should really only clarify to the release.

Which devices are supported?
For the Closed Beta, it needs an Android smartphone or tablet that meets the following minimum requirements:
Processor: Snapdragon 670 / Exynos 8895 or better
GPU: Adreno 615 / Mali-G71 MP20 or better
Memory: 2 GB RAM or more
Version: – Android OS 5.0 (Lollipop) or later
When will Diablo Immortal appear?
The Free2Play Action Roleplay should appear in the first half of 2022. We expect that before an Open Beta will be held before, hopefully more players can participate. Finally, server stability is a topic that burns Diablo fans just under the nails.
Is it really fun?
Yes! We played Diablo Immortal already good 50 hours in the Closed Alpha and had a lot of fun. Especially the chic presentation we liked, but also the successful control and the powerful staged classes quickly forgot that this is only about a mobile game. Some peculiarities must be used to be used as a Diablo fan, for example, the MMO elements, the constant resrawns or the elaborate PVP endgame around the shadows and immortals. The talent system also seemed a bit weakness in the Alpha. Nevertheless, Diablo Immortal has left a surprisingly good impression. Especially fans of Diablo 3 should keep an eye on the game!
