There are just a few days left until the official launch of Diablo Immortal, the mobile spin-off of Blizzard Entertainment’s iconic dungeon crawler. The action RPG, also released on PC, offers a brand new setting and a brand new story, as well as six different classes with which to venture into the world of Sanctuary. Ahead of the upcoming global debut, the development team has shared all the details related to the release on iOS, Android and Windows.

“Skarn, Lord of Damnation, has amassed his warmongering forces in anticipation of your imminent arrival at Sanctuary. With an ashen look and horrible frown, the demon lord murmurs … ‘We are waiting for you.'” Thus Diablo Immortal welcomes the wanderers of Sanctuarium, the heroes destined to thwart the nefarious plans of Skarn.

The launch of Diablo Immortal is set for June 2 at 19.00 (Italian time) for iOS and Android.

To find out when you can download in your region, you can consult the table shared a few hours ago by Blizzard itself.

Also from 2 June it will be possible to access the PC version of Diablo Immortal, available in open beta: it is already possible to pre-load via Battle.net. We remind you that to access Immortal on PC it is necessary to have installed the Battle.net application and to log in with an existing account. On Android and iOS, however, simply download the game from the related digital stores, click on the Install button and let the download complete.

In the post published on the Blizzard Entertainment blog, it is possible to consult a series of FAQs that clarify all the possible doubts related to the launch of the game on mobile and PC.

E3 2022, the video game fair has been canceled

E3 2022 will not take place, in any form. The largest video game fair in the world, a traditional annual event that Los Angeles E3 2021 was held in a digital format. In 2022 there won’t even be that.

“It had already been announced that E3 would not be held live in 2022 due to the continuing health risks associated with COVID-19. Today we announce that in 2022 there will not even be E3 in digital version”, reads a statement. of ESA. “We will devote all our energy and resources to deliver a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience this summer.”

In a world that after two years of emergency tests for coexistence with the virus, albeit in no particular order (from lockdowns to the end of the state of emergency in Italy), the world of fairs linked to entertainment and technology is moving again with lead feet: after the CES and the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in attendance, albeit with many defections and small ranks, E3 chooses the path of the sabbatical year, but to speak only of prudence would be an understatement.

While it is true that last week the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco was held, from which many industry professionals are rumored to have come out with COVID-19 positivity, it remains clear that more and more companies in the sector are opting to hold reviews. its online events, from Nintendo with Direct to Sony with State of Play.

If all goes well, E3 will return in 2023 taking over the reins of the videogame scene, but for this to happen it will have to be supported by the publisher and be economically sustainable. In the meantime, there are those who try to fill the void: Geoff Keighley has promptly confirmed that the Summer Game Fest will be held in June.

Battlefield 2042, the beta version available from today in preload

Battlefield 2042 is one of the best shooting games. The release of the video game is approaching, but in the meantime the beta is upon us, with the possibility of preloading already yesterday on PC and consoles and the opening of the new trial version scheduled for today, Wednesday 6 October 2021. After many uncertainties and rumors, the beta and preload dates have been officially announced by EA and the early download is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S. Let’s say that it is not really a feature that smells of realism, but the series has never wanted to be too fiscal under the simulation aspect and certainly will not change its philosophy with Battlefield 2042. (IGN ITALY) Well, on the technical front, the PlayStation 5 version promises well with its 2160p that seems effective (even if some reconstruction technique has been used is not noticeable at all) and a fairly solid frame rate. We must always consider that this is the open beta version, therefore not indicative of the final quality of the game, but already seen in this way, with very high PC settings, it makes a good impression at 4K and 60 fps.

The game of war (and peace)

This design is very contextualized in this period, in which the USA is withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan, after decades of wars and domination of the territory, and the Taliban are preparing to conquer the capital! Will there still be the danger of terrorism and attacks?

Some children play with war toys in a imaginary world; in the future, some of them will play with peace toys in their imaginary world.

War or peace. Both are learned behavior. What will you teach yours?

The new Xbox console will be released at Christmas 2020

On the occasion of the 2019 The Game Awards, Phil Spencer surprises Los Angeles audiences by officially announcing Xbox Series X, the next-gen console to be launched at Christmas 2020.

The Redmond company called it the fastest and most powerful console ever created by the company and is set to be a real benchmark for all living room platforms and consoles.

Based on rumors circulating on the net in recent months, Project Scarlett (and therefore Xbox Series X) should boast 16 GB of RAM (including 3 GB to be used for operating system management), a computational power of 12 Teraflops, support to Ray Tracing, a hyper-fast SSD drive and full backwards compatibility with all games from previous generations of Xbox consoles.

The Xbox Series X looks a lot like a PC, a choice that perhaps was made for the important technical features of a console that will open the track to a new generation of video games coming up starting from the Christmas holidays 2020, when the new Xbox will clash with PlayStation 5, which at this point remains the only console to be announced officially in the coming months. “It will be four times more powerful than Xbox One X, but it will also be quiet and energy efficient,” explained Phil Spence.

Microsoft has also unveiled the new controller. It is very similar in design to the current one, but slightly refined. Among the new features there is a share button via which you can take screenshots and record game videos, as is already the case for PlayStation 4. The controller is slightly smaller than the current one, but will continue to support vibration in the dorsal triggers. The Xbox Series X controller will also be compatible with the Xbox currently on the market and PCs with the Windows 10 operating system.
