Diablo 3 will be getting a new playable character sometime in the year within the Necromancer Pack. We saw this character in Diablo 2 and with the mass amount of requests to bring it back, they final have. players who will need both Diablo III and Reaper of Souls to have access to Necromancer and don't forget, Necromancer is another purchase you'll have to spend on. Necromancer will bring new abilities bringing the dead back to life and fighting beside you or exploding corpses around the maps. New gear will be added meaning more farming and set dungeons that will be harder with unique challenges within them. Of course there will be a female and a male character to whatever gender you are towards. Personally I thought an announcement for Diablo 4 was going to be leaked but this is still a surprise for me.
What will we get as part of the Rise of the Necromancer pack?
"In addition to unlocking the Necromancer as a playable character, players will also receive an in-game pet, two additional character slots, two additional stash tabs (on PC), a portrait frame, pennant, banner, and banner sigil."
Some of Necromancers Abilities:
The Diablo III Necromancer is a reimagining of the classic Diablo II class. While not all of the Diablo II class skills will be returning, we drew a lot of inspiration from the previous version of the Necromancer and have taken the Diablo III version in a direction we hope you'll love!
It's nice that they keep adding more stuff to this game and I definitely support that they're trying to stay relevant with games like PoE out which is close to a clone but in my opinion I think its kind of lame that they're only pumping out "character dlc" stuff now. Where's the new areas/quests etc. Oh well I'll just play my game and shut up lol.
