Blizzard made its big Diablo announcement at this year's Blizzcon and it's a new Diablo mobile game called Diablo Immortal.

Blizzard is partnering with Chinese game company NetEase, who distributes Blizzard games in China, for Diablo Immortal a new game set between Diablo 2 and 3. Blizzard is calling Immortal the first mobile MMO Action-RPG in the series. Check out the trailer below.

The gameplay video showed off the six heroic classes players will be able to play as including hunter, monk, necromancer, warrior, paladin, and sorcerer. The footage shows gameplay that looks very similar to Diablo on PC but we'll need to get a hands-on before passing any final judgement.

Blizzard says Diablo Immortal will fill in the lore and story of what happened in the decades between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3. Players will find out what happened to some of their favorite characters in between the two two games and years between them.
