Diablo Immortal beginner's guide: 7 tips to get started

While it wasn’t quite a full decade, it has been close to 10 years between the launch of Diablo 3 and the next entry in the insanely popular and addictive action-RPG series. However, instead of getting Diablo 4, fans were concerned to hear that Diablo Immortal, a free-to-play title for mobile and PC, would be the next entry in their beloved series. Thankfully, the initial hesitation and skepticism was unfounded, and the title is a true Diablo game from top to bottom.

For a more thorough breakdown of the classes, we have a more detailed guide on that to check out, but here’s a short breakdown to help you make a quick decision.
