Diablo 3’s Necromancer pack releases next week and is cheaper than expected

Diablo 3 Necromancer release date

Diablo 3’s long-awaited Necromancer now has a release date – and it’s real soon. The undead-raising, rock-star-looking, curse-bringing one will join Diablo 3’s cast of Nephalem on June 27 (that’s one week today, calendar fans) and costs $14.99 / £12.99.

Here’s what we thought of Diablo 3’s Necromancer last time we played it.

Perhaps I need to show more faith, but that’s around $10 / £7 cheaper than I thought it would be. Here are the extras you get, along with access to the deathly one:

  • The utterly gross Half-formed Golem pet
  • Cosmetic Wings of the Crypt Guardian
  • Two additional character slots
  • Two stash tabs
  • Necromancer portrait, banner, sigil, and accent, and Blood Master pennant

Blizzard’s official post has a Q&A about it. This also means 2.6.0 – which includes Challenge Rifts among many other changes – will be available then. The latest patch notes for that are over here.

Elsewhere, The Eternal Collection is coming to console as a complete pack of Diablo 3, Reaper of Souls, and Rise of the Necromancer. It’ll be $39.99 / £29.99 on launch, a good time to grab it if you’ve been considering the PC version.
