The Rise of the Necromancer expansion for Diablo III is coming digitally to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 27.
The expansion brings with it the return of the Necromancer class, last seen in Diablo II. The return of Necromancers to Diablo, who “draw upon the power of blood and bone to protect humanity,” was first rumored last November when concept art leaked online.
Rise of the Necromancer includes a Golem in-game pet, Cosmetic Wings of the Crypt Guardian, 2 more character slots, 2 stash tabs for PC gamers, and “Necromancer portrait, banner, sigil, and accent, and Blood Master pennant.”
Xbox One and PlayStation 4 can get the Diablo III Eternal Collection, which includes the base game, Reaper of Souls expansion and Rise of the Necromancer. Xbox Gold and PlayStation Plus members can get the Eternal Collection for $40 USD when it launches. The price is a “special introductory price,” meaning it’s a limited time deal, and non-Gold or Plus members will have to pay $60.
The expansion is $15 on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
