on November 4, 2016 3:18 PM

During a presentation at BlizzCon today, Blizzard Entertainment announced a new DLC for Diablo III, titled Rise of the Necromancer.

The new package, that will come in 2017, will let you control an army of undead minion as the Necromancer playable class, and will include additional stash and character slots and cosmetic goodies.

This isn’t the only piece of news came from BlizzCom for Diablo fans, as Blizzard also announced a “remake” of the original Diablo that will be included within Diablo III and coming with a patch.

No details on pricing were revealed for Rise of the Necromancer, but we know that the Reaper of Souls expansion will be required on the PC version.

Check out the announcement trailer below. Diablo III was originally released in 2012 for PC, followed by the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions in 2013, and the PS4 and Xbox One versions in 2014. Apparently, it still has some life in it.
