After speculating that the Eternal Collection included the Necromancer Pack, Blizzard has officially confirmed the news today.
The Diablo 3: Eternal Collection is a collection available for players on Xbox One and PS4 that includes the base Diablo 3 game, the Reaper of Souls expansion and the Rise of the Necromancer Pack. The bundle will be available to start out at $39.99 as a special introductory price. The full price of the bundle is $59.99, so grab it early if you can.
On top of getting the new class, the Rise of the Necromancer Pack will also include the following items:
- Non-combat pet
- A pair of cosmetic wings
- New Necromancer-themed Banner Shape, Sigil, and Accent
- Necromancer Portrait Frame
- Two additional character slots
- Two additional stash tabs (not available on Xbox One and PS4)
In order to play the new class, you will need to update your game to Patch 2.6.0, which comes with a lot of new content, including Challenge Rifts, The Shrouded Moors zone, Temple of the Fistborn zone and the Realm of Fates. Everything in the patch will be included free of charge. Although, we’d assume this game will come with the patch pre-installed but you never know.
Our recent speculation on when the Rise of the Necromancer Pack would come out ended up being pretty accurate, although pretty much anyone could’ve guessed the time. The Necromancer will be released long enough for players to get a taste of how it works before Season 11 starts up, which will happen on July 20. This gives players almost a whole month to find out everything the Necromancer has to offer.
The Necromancer Pack will mark the first time Diablo 3 players have had to buy anything in-game with actual money outside of expansion packs. Most other Blizzard games are monetized through Loot Crates and purchasable skins.
