Blizzard Entertainment have announced that the Rise of the Necromancer pack, which summons the much-anticipated necromancer class into Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, will be unleashed on June 27th.
Necromancers, as the mysterious Priests of Rathma are commonly known, made their series debut in Diablo II, where millions of players experienced the thrill of controlling unstoppable armies of undead minions. In Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, these talented men and women draw upon the power of blood and bone to protect humanity, transforming the lifeless carcasses of their slain enemies into undying servants—or just blowing them up, because that’s fun, too.

The Rise of the Necromancer pack grants players the following:
- The twisted and misshapen Half-formed Golem in-game pet
- Cosmetic Wings of the Crypt Guardian
- Two additional character slots
- Two stash tabs (PC only)
- Necromancer portrait, banner, sigil, and accent, and Blood Master pennant
Console gamers who have yet to experience Diablo III will be able to pick up the digital-only Eternal Collection, which includes the Rise of the Necromancer pack, Diablo III, and the Reaper of Souls expansion for PS4 or Xbox One.
