Blizzard has confirmed that Rise of the Necromancer will be available across all platforms for $14.99. We’ve yet to see UK pricing emerge.
Reviews Editor Alastair Stevenson went hands-on with the Necromancer earlier this year. Here’s what he thought:
“Though I wasn’t terribly excited about the readdition of the Necromancer class to Diablo when Blizzard first announced it, having had a go with the new character, you can colour me impressed. From what I’ve seen, Blizzard has taken the neurotically focused approach it’s famous for, and created a customisable and balanced character class that could comfortably carve its own place in any adventure party or solo adventure.”
