We finally have the release date and cost for the Diablo 3 add-on, Rise of the Necromancer. The new content will be released on June 27th for all platforms and will cost $15. In addition, PS4 and XB1 players can get the D3 Eternal Collection that includes the base game, Reaper of Souls and the Rise of the Necromancer. XBox Gold & PlayStation Plus members can grab it for an "introductory" price of $40, meaning a short term price.
The Diablo 3 site has been updated with a brief video and preview of the Necromancer set and legendary items coming to the game when the Necromancer pack is released sometime in the near(ish) future. There will be five unique Necromancer armor / weapon sets and a number of unique legendary items as well.
The Diablo 3 site has been updated with a look at the in-game goodies that players will gain access to if they purchase the Rise of the Necromancer pack. There is no information yet about ordering, including how much the pack will cost. Judging by the timing of the post, it is likely coming soon (tm).
