We knew it was coming, and now it's confirmed: the Necromancer class is coming to Diablo III. The new class, which as you might expect focuses on reanimating the dead (and sometimes exploding them), is coming as part of the Rise of the Necromancer expansion, which is due to land on PC, PS4 and Xbox One at some point in 2017, for a still to be determined price.
We don't know a huge amount about the new class, and Blizzard has promised to reveal more in due course, but we do know that (as per usual) there's male and female variants, and on top of summoning the undead, they have a few new tricks (Blood Rush, Bone Spear, Siphon Blood, and Summon Skeletons) that should breathe new life into Blizzard's action-RPG. There'll be new class specific legendaries, and of course they head into battle clutching a scythe. Check out the new trailer below and see them in action.
