Blizzard has plenty in mind for its Diablo Immortal roadmap, and shares plans for 2023 that include four major Diablo Immortal updates, a new class, clan improvements, fresh gameplay options, and… fishing? That’s right, while it might still be a while until the Diablo 4 release date, there’s plenty to look forward to in the free-to-play entry for one of Blizzard’s main RPG games in the meantime.
Diablo community manager Adam ‘PezRadar’ Fletcher shares details for the upcoming year of Diablo Immortal updates on the game’s Reddit page. Fletcher noted that the game received two major updates after it was released in June 2022. He also said that the team plans to continue with four major updates throughout the year 2023.
These updates will include “improvements to clans, in-game social features, and gameplay – while also introducing a new class and Helliquary bosses.” The prospect of a new addition to the roster of Diablo Immortal classes is perhaps the most exciting among these, as it’ll presumably introduce completely new skills and gameplay for players to get to grips with.
Fletcher reveals that new side and main quests are being developed to build on the Diablo Immortal storyline and overall narrative. He also says that increased gameplay variety is a key focus for 2023, speaking to the core Diablo experience of “making quick-witted choices to decimate droves of demons as you continue to enrich your character’s build with Sanctuary’s most powerful gear.”
As such, new Diablo Immortal legendary pieces will continue rolling out with future updates. This will give all current and future classes many ways to improve their builds and to come up with new strategies. He wraps up by adding, “To add to our gameplay variety, we plan to introduce a new competitive mode and fishing activity.”
A recent Diablo Immortal Q&A briefly discussed new ideas in the works for Diablo Immortal PvP, though it sounds like we’ll have to wait a while longer to find out what those are. The interview also hinted at “other events that heavily modify Immortal’s gameplay” – though we certainly didn’t have fishing on our bingo cards!
Make sure you’re rocking the best Diablo Immortal builds as we head into 2023, and keep an eye on our Diablo Immortal tier list when the new class arrives to see how it shakes the meta up. In the meantime, we’ve got more of the best free PC games if you’re looking for other great ways to spend time but not money.
