Diablo 3's Rise of The Necromancer Coming June 27

What is dead can be bought back… for $14.99.

Blizzard Entertainment announced today that the Rise of the Necromancer pack for Diablo III will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on June 27. The content pack includes the new Necromancer class, a pale rockstar who uses blood and corpses to deal damage. Rise of the Necromancer will cost $14.99 and is only available to players who own either Diablo III: Reaper of Souls and Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition.

"Comprised of controlled, calculating individuals, the Priests of Rathma have long known the true stakes at the heart of the Eternal Conflict. Known to uneducated outsiders as Necromancers, these masters of blood, bone, and the dark arts are often misunderstood. Driven to protect the Balance at all costs, those dedicated to walking this path see neither good nor evil in their actions; simply obedience to the cycle of being," says Blizzard about the new class.

In addition to the Necromancer, the pack includes:

  • Non-combat pet
  • A pair of cosmetic wings
  • New Necromancer-themed Banner Shape, Sigil, and Accent
  • Necromancer Portrait Frame
  • Pennant
  • Two additional character slots
  • Two additional stash tabs*

Rise of the Necromancer launches alongside patch 2.6.0, which includes a bunch of free additions to the game, like Challenge Rifts, The Shrouded Moors and Temple of the Firstborn zones, and the Realms of Fate.

Blizzard is also releasing an updated package for retail. Ultimate Evil Edition is being replaced by Diablo III: Eternal Collection, the new all-in-one release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Diablo III: Eternal Collection will be available for $39.99 at launch and $59.99 after.
