Diablo Immortal isn't supposed to release until tomorrow, but if you pre-registered for the app on iOS or Android, you may find the game downloading already. This afternoon, users began receiving notifications that the game download was ready, and sure enough, the game is not only downloadable, but it is also playable.
I received the same notification on my iPhone and have already downloaded the game and can confirm it is currently accessible here in the UK. No VPNs or secondary accounts were used, it all just came straight through the iOS system to my usual UK App Store account. However, it is worth noting that Blizzard could restrict access if this was an error, and with the game rolling out a day earlier than planned on mobile, there may well be downtime for maintenance at some point today.
Diablo Immortal will feature full cross-play and cross-progression between PC and mobile. Blizzard also says that it has “gone the extra mile” to preserve major elements of the Diablo control scheme, so the game should feel familiar to those who have already played a Diablo game across all platforms. The game will also ship with gamepad support on mobile and PC, so you can opt to use a controller instead of touch controls or a keyboard and mouse.
While Blizzard has not detailed monetisation or microtransactions in the game yet, the cancelled launch in Belgium and the Netherlands suggest that the game will have loot boxes of some kind.

KitGuru Says: I haven't had a chance to play much yet, but I'm intrigued to see how this game turned out after its infamous unveiling back in 2018.
