Blizzard revealed today that the Rise of the Necromancer pack will be releasing for Diablo III on June 27 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The pack will be available to purchase on its own for $14.99, or else will be included in the Diablo III: Eternal Collection for $39.99. A brand new trailer was released showing off the Necromancer's abilities and gear, and four new class sets were revealed. They look amazing. Check out the sizzle reel above.
"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."
So in addition to the wicked-cool Necromancer class in both the adventure and campaign modes, the Rise of the Necromancer pack also comes with a few exclusive digital items:
- Non-combat pet
- A pair of cosmetic wings
- New Necromancer-themed Banner Shape, Sigil, and Accent
- Necromancer Portrait Frame
- Two additional character slots
As mentioned above, and brand new "all-in-one" edition of Diablo III will be released on consoles. "Players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will have the opportunity to purchase an all-in-one package in the Eternal Collection. This bundle includes both the Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition and the Rise of the Necromancer pack, and will be available at a special introductory price of $39.99 USD (reg. $59.99 SRP). "
Along with Rise of the Necromancer comes patch 2.6, which will be available for free to all players. This patch introduces new challenge rifts, The Shrouded Moors zone, Temple of the Firstborn zone, and the Realms of Fate. As long as you own the Reaper of Souls expansion, all of those things will be free for you.
