On June 2, Blizzard Entertainment’s mobile video game Diablo Immortal will clock one. A few days later, the studio will also release the next mainline title in the series, Diablo IV – a game they are confident will launch smoothly and without hassle. To celebrate both events, Blizzard has announced a Diablo IV Launch Celebration x Diablo Immortal event and several new features for the game.
Blizzard announced this development via a blog post. In the post, the game company appreciated the fans for their loyal support. It then stated that, in honor of these fans, there will be "a bloody wave of new additions" to the game "over the next two months."
While Blizzard’s blog post didn’t provide in-depth details about its plans, it did provide some insight. The company intends to introduce a new Zone and a new Class into the game to commemorate Diablo Immortal’s anniversary. It also promised to reveal more information on the items in the future.

The first features to arrive in the game are the Merciless Monstrosity event, Children of Lilith Battle Pass, and Hatred’s Heritage Phantom Market. All of these will arrive in early June presumably around Diablo Immortal’s anniversary and Diablo IV launch. According to Blizzard, they will be "experienceable expressions of Sanctuary’s matriarch [Lilith]."
In mid-June, Diablo Immortal players’ battle against the Cult of Terror will find them and a non-player character Zatham on a mysterious island. The island, known as the Ancients’ Cradle by locals, is home to a reclusive people and will have many secrets to offer in the player’s efforts to save Sanctuary from destruction.
During this period, players will embark on the next chapter of the Main Questline. Their adventures will see them go up against numerous enemy types, unveil a new PvP Zone Event, as well as numerous Side Quests and Bounties.
Finally, the Diablo Immortal Team will introduce a new class into the game in July. According to the blog post, the new "Class bleeds new blood into the Diablo universe with its appearance in Immortal and favors a mid-range playstyle using a classic weapon type."
By the way, the Diablo IV Launch Celebration is not the only thing Blizzard is doing ahead of the game’s debut. Earlier this month, they opened the doors of a real-life Diablo Cathedral in France for fans to visit and experience the game in art form.
Diablo Immortal is available on iOS and Android devices, as well as on PC.
On the other hand, Diablo IV will launch on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Microsoft Windows platforms on June 6. If you pre-order the game’s Digital Deluxe or Ultimate Edition, you can get your hands on it by June 2.
