The Necromancer Returns in Diablo 3 Next Year

Blizzard has confirmed the Necromancer will be returning in Diablo III at this year’s Blizzcon.

The new pack, dubbed simply Rise of the Necromancer, will be coming out sometime next year. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the classic Diablo II role in his new form.

A price wasn’t announced, however the pack will come with two character slots, an in-game pet, two stash tabs (on PC), a portrait frame, banner, and a banner sigil.

    I can’t wait to buy this exciting new character and not play him because Diablo 3 has no fucking worthwhile content.

  • Madbrainbox

    They finally decided to bring the best class over.I hope they don’t fuck him up.And I want my golems.

    A bit too late no? I don’t think I can play D3 again after so many play throughs. They should just create a new full length game build on top of the last one.

  • RockstarRepublic

    To be fair, the last xpack had some decent content added, but it was too freakin short.

    Now that’s a blast from the past.

    I played as the necromancer in D2 and D2:LOD.
    My brother was a sorceress.

    Back then Blizzard was good. Golden age of PC gaming.

    Corpse explosion too op pls nerf

  • I would say it is still the golden age but yeah Blizzard/activison sucks.

  • Uncle Slick

    Awesome. But next year? Jeez.

  • NathanEH

    Are… Are people still playing Diablo III? How exciting is a single character class “coming out sometime next year” to a four year old game that pretty universally disappointed its fans?

  • gwadahunter2222

    it seems the game became less shitty

  • Grayares Fakcot

    best class is assassin though

  • Zanard Bell

    Let’s be honest, Blizzard can port over every character they had in D3 and I’d still enjoy it. My favorite in D2 was the Paladin and the Druid.

  • porkbun

    My favourite class in D2. 2nd favourite sorc

  • Madbrainbox

    When it comes to melee I like the Druid more.The wolfie is quite fun.
