Blizzard has announced that the Rise of the Necromancer pack for Diablo 3, which adds the much-loved Necromancer character class from Diablo 2 to the younger game, will be released next week on 27th June. "The new content will be available in-game on PC, or through the online Blizzard Shop, the PlayStation Store, and the Xbox One Store".

The DLC is a homage to the fan-favorite class in Diablo II, and introduces the Necromancer as a playable class in the latest adventures of Diablo III. Players on PC will also get access to two additional stash tabs. There is also a Necromancer portrait, banner, sigil, and accent that you can grab, as well as a Blood Master pennant. Blizzard has it tagged for $14.99 in the USA, so we imagine that it'll go for around £10 here in the UK. The Necromancer will be priced at $14.99/£12.99 (what the hell?!) and will require the Reaper of Souls expansion on PC to play (PS4 and Xbox One players don't need to worry about that bit).

In addition, Blizzard will release a new digital edition of the game for consoles - Diablo 3: Eternal Collection - which includes the base game, Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer. PlayStation Plus members and XBox Gold members can buy the special edition for $40 for a limited time.
