Diablo Immortal device specs for Android
Blizzard has shared the minimum device specs required for Android users to enjoy the Diablo Immortal closed beta. Check them out below:
- CPU - Snapdragon 670 / Exynos 8895 and higher
- GPU - Adreno 615 / Mali-G71 MP20 and higher

Diablo Immortal closed beta content
While Blizzard continues to expand the content of Diablo Immortal, the closed beta has a highly-anticipated new class to try out...the Necromancer.
Blizzard explains: "Haunt your foes with the dead, so even the demons of the Burning Hells will feel dread.
Reanimate corpses to protect the living. Curse the damned with baneful skills. Inflict pestilence on the enemy. Alienated and shunned by society, those who underestimate your power are ignorant of their grave mistake. Only your commands echo in eternity."
While the Necromancer is undoubtedly the highlight of the new content, there are also updates to the Cycle of Strife, PvP, PvE, set items, enhanced item drops and more which you can read about via the official blog post.
To be frank, there's a whole lot of content in the Diablo Immortal closed beta but we are most excited about the Necromancer class making its way into the mobile ARPG.
Controller support in Diablo Immortal
A highly-requested feature has made its way into the Diablo Immortal closed beta. Yes, we are talking about controller support, which fans have been asking for since the game's announcement.
Blizzard explains the controller support in the Diablo Immortal closed beta: "We’ve heard players loud and clear and our long-term goal is to provide full controller support for Diablo Immortal. We’re not there yet, and there is more work to do. The Closed Beta will give players an early preview of this functionality."
This early controller support comes with some major caveats:
- The Closed Beta does not include controller support for UI menus such as inventory, skills, Codex, Paragon, or vendors. You will still need to use the touchscreen to navigate UI screens.
- Not all controllers are supported. Device compatibility is part of our testing goals during Closed Beta.
- You may experience some technical difficulties such as controller disconnection.
So there you have it, everything Diablo Immortal fans need to know about the closed beta. Good luck joining in!
