For the lore heads amongst the Diablo fandom, this title is set between the end of Diablo 2 and the beginning of Diablo 3, bringing with it a ton of story that is canon to the series as well, so expect to see a few familiar faces amongst NPCs as well. You’ll be teaming up with these usual suspects as you progress throughout that adventure.

Of course, co-op is a staple of the series as well, but Immortal introduces a brand new mechanic as well; PvP. This new mechanic will let you team up with a guild to both achieve PvE dominance and rewards as well as participate in the Cycle of Strife, an ongoing conflict that will let the server's top players earn the Eternal Crown and earn very rare rewards.

If you’re wondering where to find Diablo: Immortal and even pre-register for iOS, you can find it on the App Store. For the Android audience, pre-registration isn’t available just yet, but keep tabs on the official website for any more updates in that regard.
