“We have what I call charge-up skills,” Cheng says. “Arcane Wind for the Wizard is a great example. You press down on the Arcane Wind button, and as your thumb holds that button down, it starts to charge up. The damage increases the longer you hold it down, and the area-of-effect increases. But you can also aim it while it’s charging up. And through all of that, you can move your character around to really line up that perfect shot. 

“This is something that we couldn’t do with just a mouse input, and so that was an opportunity that we wanted to take advantage of. It’s also why we added WASD keyboard control for people who wanted to be able to do that.”

Whether you’re collaborating in Diablo Immortal on mobile or PC, you’ll have to faucet objects to pull up their descriptions. 

“And that immediately [makes people go], ‘Oh, this is a game that was built for [a] mobile-first client,’” Cheng says. “But the advantage of that is that the game is identical. When you go back and forth [between the mobile and PC version], we have complete feature parity. There’s no hidden functionality that’s available on one platform or another.”

“Diablo Immortal is probably the most ambitious Diablo game we’ve done to date,” Fergusson says. “And it’s something that we’re really excited about. Part of the free-to-play nature of the game is [the] support for the game as we go beyond launch, and we look at new zones, new dungeons, even new classes. All those will be available for free, as we continue to support Diablo for years to come.”
