Berlin Because, as usual with many mobile games, “Diablo Immortal” is free, but in return it comes up with a variety of microtransactions. While upgrading skills has been reduced to a minimum, you can give your own character better combat values and special outfits with money. “Pay2win” is the name of this bad habit. Let the credit cards glow And that’s lapping up: A YouTuber calculated that buying all the upgrades would cost more than $ 100,000. For comparison: with the bonuses for logging in every day, you would need ten years for this. “Diablo Immortal” also does a lot of good. The graphic style or the class selection, for example, are reminiscent of “Diablo 3” and thus a proven good basis. The control of the usual fast-paced fights works well on the smartphone. The game’s story was also praised by critics. Artificial limits slow down the fun of the game So it is only too bad that even this is artificially slowed down with the achievement of certain levels. Of course, you can shorten the waiting time by in-app purchase and progress faster. If you want to save your own wallet, you should be patient. At the last minute, Blizzard had also promised the beta of a PC version in April. The flying change between the devices is practical, but on the PC you have to deal with a control system that is still designed for touch screens and graphics that are not very up-to-date. A successor is already in the works, so it should be worth waiting for the full-fledged successor “Diablo 4”, which should make it to the screens next year. Also not wrong: the first “Diablo” from 1996 is available in a prettified HD version online for 10 euros. With all extensions and – apart from the electricity bill and mouse buttons clicked through – at no additional cost. “Diablo Immortal” is available for free for Android and iOS, as well as in a beta version for PC. Individual in-app purchases cost up to 20 euros.
