The Necromancer Has Arrived In Diablo 3
Blizzard has announced that the dark hero has returned as Rise of the Necromancer is now available for Diablo 3.
Necromancers are grim spellcasters who draw upon the power of blood and bone and raise terrifying armies of undead minions from the remains of their vanquished foes. These brooding men and women are masters of the dark arts who seek to preserve the balance between the forces of life and death in Sanctuary—even if it requires detonating several thousand demon corpses along the way.
Console gamers who have yet to experience Diablo III can acquire a legendary treasure starting today in the form of the digital-only Eternal Collection, which includes the Rise of the Necromancer pack, Diablo III, and the award-winning Reaper of Souls expansion for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. This expansive all-in-one collection is a perfect jumping-in point for anyone who might have missed out on the definitive couch co-op gaming experience.
If you own the base game, you can add this experience to it for $22, however if you are on console and need to get the entire package, for a limited time the game is available for $60, but it will be priced normally at $100.
