In a new blog post detailing some of the features coming to the game, Blizzard explained that players will be able to change between different classes without having to lose out on all the progress they’ve already made. Gamers in Westmarch will be able to change their character into a completely new class while also altering the way they look. Not only will you keep all the progress you’ve made on Paragon levels, but you’ll also receive a new set of equipped items that work with the new class you’ve chosen. More surprisingly, you’ll be able to keep all your previous equipment and stash and transfer all item progress and gems over to your new gear as well, while progress on Horadric Vessels and the Helliquary will also be retained. The one thing you will have to do again is collect Legendary items for your changed class.
“We didn’t want to force our players into the hard choice of giving up progress on their main character to support an alt,” Blizzard’s update reads. “We also didn’t want anyone to feel obligated to keep a roster of alt characters to gather rewards and resources, or to match the shifting demands of Leaderboards, Cycle of Strife, or other competitive systems. Class Change gives you the freedom to explore classes that you get from multiple alts, but without any of those downsides. It also allows us to give full rewards to each new character you play, with no expectation you’ll share resources among them.”
There’s currently no concrete release date yet for Diablo Immortal, so those interested should stay tuned for more updates to come.
Elsewhere in gaming, Call of Duty: Vanguard will be free-to-play for a limited time.
