Blizzard is bringing the Necromancer class back to Diablo with the release of the Rise of the Necromancer pack for Diablo 3 on June 27, Blizzard announced today. The add-on will be available for Mac, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One for $14.99.

In addition to the newly playable class, Rise of the Necromancer pack will also include a Half-formed Golem in-game pet, the Cosmetic Wings of the Crypt Guardian, two extra character slots, and the Necromancer portrait, banner, sigil, and accent, and Blood Master pennant. Players on PC will also get access to two additional stash tabs.

Blizzard will release a new bundle for Diablo 3, which includes the original game, the Reaper of Souls expansion and the Rise of the Necromancer pack, called the Eternal Collection for consoles. The digital-only Diablo 3: Eternal Collection bundle will be available at a “special introductory price” of $39.99 for a limited time to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold members. The bundle will normally retail for $59.99.

Blizzard announced that it was bringing the Necromancer, which first appeared in Diablo 2, back to Diablo 3 at last year’s BlizzCon. The developer also detailed how the Necromancer will differ from Diablo 3’s other summoner class, the Witch Doctor, during the event.
