The Dead Will Rise in Diablo III Starting June 27

For any Diablo fans eager to summon the dead, Blizzard has announced a release date for the Rise of the Necromancer pack.

The highlight of the pack is the new class coming to Diablo 3, the Necromancer. Commander of the dead and protectors of the balance of life and death, the Necromancers are masters of blood, bone, and the dark arts. Raising armies of the dead, commanding great curses, consuming corpses and syphoning blood are all in a day’s work for the Necromancer.

“While players often ask us to bring back their favorite characters from our classic games, few classes have been requested as often, or as passionately, as the necromancer,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Reimagining the necromancer was a labor of love—we worked hard to capture the essence of what made the class so iconic, while taking advantage of everything Diablo III has to offer.”

Players who purchase the Rise of the Necromancer pack will also receive extra goodies. These goodies are:

  • A non-combat pet (the Half-formed Golem)
  • A pair of cosmetic wings (Wings of the Crypt Guardian)
  • Necromancer Banner
  • Sigil and Accent
  • Necromancer Portrait
  • Blood Master Pennant
  • Two additional characters slots
  • Two additional stash tabs (PC Only)

For any players who have yet to play Diablo 3 or are looking to repurchase it, Blizzard is releasing an all-in-one package for consoles called the Eternal Collection. Available digital-only the Eternal Collection includes both the Rise of the Necromancer pack along with Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition. The pack is receiving a special introductory price of $39.99 USD but will retail for $59.99 USD.

Alongside the new class, players will be able to obtain 4 brand new class sets and over 30 new legendaries. Command your undead army with the Bones of Rathma set, protect yourself in bone with the Grace of Inarius set, consume your foes with the Pestilence Master’s Shroud set, or wield the power of blood with the Trag’Oul’s Avatar set.

Look forward to commanding the forces of life and death following maintenance on June 27th.
