The popular FPS battle royale games saw certain tweaks in its mobile version, so whether Apex Legends will come with a twist for its mobile game or stay loyal to the original remains a mystery.
3) Diablo Immortal
Diablo Immortal, Blizzard Entertainment’s second console game will be hitting the Android phones soon but there’s a catch. Unlike the usual drill of mobile versions being identical to the original PC or console games, Diablo Immortal is not.
The storyline is built between the events of Diablo II and III; where Archangel Tyrael is assumed to be dead with Worldstone shattered into fragments. These segments are what encouraging evil creatures to get hold of the stone’s power to conquer the land.
The game allows you to choose your warrior from six classes, each having 12 skills that you can use to defeat the creatures. These classes are named: Barbarian, Monk, Wizard, Crusader, Demon Hunter, and Necromancer.
