It seems like forever since Blizzard first unveiled the Necromancer back at Blizzcon 2016. Luckily, Diablo 3 fans eager to try out the new class won’t have to wait much longer because the Necromancer will become available in less than a week from now. To be a little bit more specific, the Rise of the Necromancer DLC is scheduled to hit PC, PS4, and Xbox One on Tuesday, June 27. The DLC will set you back $15 or your regional equivalent and will launch for Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls and Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition.

Rise of the Necromancer unlocks access to the titular class both in the Campaign and Adventure modes. In addition, the DLC also includes a bunch of other new content that Diablo 3 players might enjoy. Among others, we’re looking at a Golem pet, two additional character slots, the Wings of the Crypt Guardian cosmetic item, Necromancer portrait, banner, and sigil, two stash tabs for PC players, and more.

“While players often ask us to bring back their favorite characters from our classic games, few classes have been requested as often, or as passionately, as the Necromancer,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Reimagining the Necromancer was a labor of love—we worked hard to capture the essence of what made the class so iconic, while taking advantage of everything Diablo 3 has to offer.”

Blizzard also announced a new digital-only edition of Diablo 3 that includes the DLC as well as the base game and its expansion pack. Entitled Diablo 3: Eternal Collection, the new version comes with the main game, Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer. The bundle is only available on consoles and costs $40 at launch provided you’re either a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live member, depending on your platform.
