Diablo is coming back, but not quite in the way you expected. Media outlets are reporting that Diablo Immortal will feature a brand new class for players to choose from: The Blood Knight. The game’s Datamining Report reveals two images of what seems like this mysterious hero wielding an enormous sword and shield-type weapon with a red cape behind him and his name written as “BloodKnight.”

Datamining reveals a potential Blood Knight class for Diablo Immortal

The “diablo immortals” is a potential Blood Knight class for Diablo Immortal. Data mining reveals that the new class will be a melee assassin with high mobility and strong single-target damage.

Same old story, same old song and dance.

Given how the Diablo series is often laced with enough adolescent edge to force a Hot Topic shop to spontaneously appear, it almost seems weird that there aren’t Blood Knights wandering about from the word “go” in every Diablo game. Blood Knights exist, but they’ve never been playable… until now, in Diablo Immortal. Datamining has uncovered a number of talents that seem to lead to Blood Knight being a playable class in the game, complete with all the edgy ability names you could want.

Of course, there’s been considerable conjecture about this class for a long time, aided in no little part by previous datamining suggesting a possible crest for the class. While nothing has been announced as of yet, don’t be shocked if the future of this mobile game includes the ability to call your own blood demon for chopping and slashing. What else would you expect from a talent that enables you to summon a blood demon?

Due to a lengthy run of controversies in the MMO and gaming field over the past several years, including the Blitzchung boycott, huge layoffs, labor issues, and executive pay controversy, Activision-Blizzard is regarded a problematic corporation in the MMO and gaming industry. The company was sued by the state of California last summer for fostering a work environment that was riddled with sexual harassment and discrimination, and the company’s disastrous response has only added to Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are on the decline. Employees are on strike and demanding Bobby Kotick’s resignation, prompting many state and federal organizations to investigate the corporation.
