Blizzard's official description of the Tempest class in Diablo Immortal reads:

In a time of ever-growing danger for the world of Sanctuary, mysterious wanderers have sailed from the frigid mists of the north to push back the darkness that surrounds us. These agile, dual blade-wielding warriors harness the fury of the storm, and crash upon their enemies with wind and waves. Will you become one of them? Or will you fight alongside them? 

Unfortunately, the precise abilities and skills have not been revealed at the time of writing. We will know more soon, and we will update you with all the details once they become available.
