Diablo Immortal makes arguments, disappointed players slaughter him on Metacritic

Some might say that the Diablo Immortal story is easy to write, given how Blizzard’s mobile title was announced, and then launched.

Diablo Immortal is in effect a new chapter in the series, which appeared in the last bar on the Switch , and immediately brought with it a series of problems.

The announcement was, perhaps, the biggest misstep in recent Blizzard history , which fans have not failed to point out with their disappointment .

The title was launched a week ago , for mobile and PC, and the situation seems to be already compromised for the project.

Diablo Immortal is a free-to-play mobile title and, if you have some experience with the industry, there are a number of issues that this genre of games brings with it.

Mainly linked to the exorbitant number of microtransactions , which sometimes block the progression of the game behind the infamous paywall.

From these first days of the game it seems to be so and, as VGC reports , industry insiders and simple players have not failed to underline it.

Paul Tassi, a journalist at Forbes , points out that essentially Diablo Immortal is unfortunately the classic mobile title , where at some point it is impossible to continue (or extremely tedious) without shelling out real money.

Kotaku ‘s Stephen Totilo supports the evaluation , with the addition of the fact that some endgame builds require materials that would take months and months to collect, obviously without putting any money out of your own pocket.

In short, it seems that Diablo Immortal is the gacha that everyone hoped it wasn’t. Fans , in response, bombarded the game with negative reviews , dropping the title’s Metacritic to 0.8.

 

The only Blizzard games that have received a worse user score to date have been Warcraft III Reforged (0.6) and World of Warcraft Classic: Burning Crusade Classic (0.4) , which were released between 2020 and 2021.

Indeed, the fact that a complete set for one character could cost so much could be a nice wake- up call .
