Blizzard Entertainment’s new MMORPG is currently the lowest-ranked game in terms of Metacritic user score in the history of all PC games.
At the time of writing, the iOS version of Diablo Immortal has a user score of 0.5 on Metacritic whereas its PC version is sitting at an astonishingly low score of 0.2 out of 10.
The news comes after some heavy outrage from players due to the game’s “pay to win” elements.
This heavy focus on microtransactions isn’t a first for Blizzard, though. The company’s 2021 re-release of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade has received a 0.5 score as well due to similar microtransactions issues alongside its controversial faction system.
Diablo Immortal, which was initially released on June 2, 2022, was swift to rise in popularity, but received heavy criticism from fans all over the globe due to its focus on microtransactions which led many to call out the game for being “pay-to-win.”
However, it’s important to mention here that Metacritic user scores don’t require proof from the users that they’ve played the game even once before making the rating, which means that external factors may also have added to the alarmingly low Metacritic user score of Diablo Immortal.
Diablo Immortal is currently available to play for free on PC and mobile devices. The game’s primary storyline takes place between the events of Diablo II and Diablo III. Fans can check out the game here.
