Game news Diablo Immortal banned in two European countries!
Diablo Immortal is eagerly awaited by many fans around the world. Unfortunately, players from two European countries will not enjoy it …
Diablo Immortal is coming out in a few days and we just found out two important markets in Europe will not have is not eligible for a new game from Blizzard and NetEase.
Diablo Immortal banned in the Netherlands and Belgium
Planned for mobile and PC, Diablo Immortal is expected everywhere in a few days. However, we have just learned that two countries will be ready for it. As you can imagine, as has been the case with several games, it’s in Belgium and the Netherlands that the game will not be able to be released, because of loot boxes. If the loot-box system is a little different Many other games in Diablo Immortal will actually be the keys to the purchase. Thanks to the premium Diablo Immortal currency, Platinum, you can actually buy the keys to open the special chests in the safe … “Hidden” loot boxes in the game yes, and not in the external menu, but just like lootboxes. We found out about this through a forwarded message Redditand published by Blizzard Support.
This is Gamemaster Gronnfindel, I hope you enjoyed your day so far.
Unfortunately, players in the Netherlands and Belgium will not be able to install Diablo: Immortal due to gambling restrictions in those countries. Lootboxes are against the laws of your country, so unless the game’s restrictions change, the game will not be released in the Netherlands and Belgium. It would be illegal for you to download the game in another country, such as France.
If you manage to run the game, I can’t guarantee you won’t get a ban for it. I can say that in similar situations in the past, when RNG lootboxes were against the law in certain countries, we have not banned any players for this, but I cannot guarantee that you will not be banned.
If you are able to play the game on both PC and mobile, if you use the same account on both, cross-saving should still work as expected.
I’m sorry I’m the bearer of bad news, I hope you have a good day anyway!
