As the politics behind Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard rages on, games such as Diablo Immortal’s immediate future is on the balance. As such, there are a few new launches in Asia in recent weeks which seek to cater to players’ appetites for such dark gothic fantasy mobile game. Other than Atlantis, a new title known as Immortal Awakening started Closed Beta testing in Taiwan recently.
Visually and story-wise, it seems that Immortal Awakening took much inspiration from Diablo II, although the Necromancer class which we tried is nothing similar and pales in comparison when it comes to spells. There is a boss monster which looks oddly familiar to Diablo, and there is even a feature known as Book of Cain, including Deckard Cain himself as a NPC! We aren’t sure if this is copyright infringement, but we got a good laugh out of it.
