Diablo Immortal: Everything you need to know about the Realm of Damnation
Just over three weeks away from the release of Diablo Immortal, Blizzard posted an article yesterday on its blog about the kingdom of damnation. This is the first unknown location of the restricted beta players that is revealed. These are Ryan Quinn, narrative designer of Diablo Immortal, and Hunter Schulz, the artistic director, who take a guided tour of the Underworld whose lord is Skarn:
The Realm of Damnation is a demon lord’s personal hell. This zone is located in the Underworld and Skarn, the diabolical genius in search of the fragments of the Stone-World, acts there as judge, juror and executioner (repeatedly).
On the blog article, there are interventions from his voice actor (Steve Blum), as well as the general atmosphere that we will find in this Kingdom of damnation. Besides, Blizzard dedicates a whole paragraph to Skarn and explains that, even in the game, we don’t know much about him:
When the Primal Daemons were defeated in Diablo II, war raged in the Underworld, with no one truly standing out, despite the fact that Azmodan and Belial had claimed vast kingdoms themselves. Skarn was then able to prosper, but demonologists cannot say for sure whether he himself led an army, or whether he simply used this conflict as an opportunity to seize certain areas of the Hells. Most specialists don’t even know his name.
They also explain how to rethink certain landscapes so as not to fall into repetition:
We want to limit landscapes that are too strongly reminiscent of the Underworld, even if you shouldn’t end up wondering whether you’re in hell or not… But the different areas on the Diablo Immortal maps are vast, and we have at heart to bring you a variety of visuals, so that your adventure remains always as interesting
Kingdom of Damnation: activities like no other?
besides his lord, The Kingdom of Damnation full of many other things. On this subject, Blizzard specifies that the activities of the kingdom will be similar to those of the other areas of Diablo Immortal: dens, bonuses, events, quests will be submitted to the players. However, it has its own dungeon. Called The Pits of Anguish“, it is full of abyssal gargantuas and even includes”the bloodiest fight in the game” according to Blizzard.
In any case, it will be possible for us to have a total appreciation of this “shifted” vision of the Underworld as soon as Diablo Immortal is released. The title is expected on iOS and Android on June 2 with pre-registrations already available. On the same date, an open beta will also be available for players interested in the PC version of the title.
