Fans of the Necromancer class from Diablo 2 will get a chance to play the class once more, as it is officially coming to Diablo 3 for PC and Xbox One. Blizzard made the announcement at Blizzcon alongside a class introduction video that should have Diablo fans hyped.
While there wasn't much information revealed about the Necromancer on stage, Blizzard did note that it will be based on the Diablo 2 version of the class with all of the improvements of Diablo 3. In other words, you can likely expect to see a lot of familiar abilities. The Necromancer will become available as part of a character pack that will go on sale in 2017.
Lastly, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Diablo, Blizzard announced that it is bringing a playable version of the original game to Diablo 3. The experience will take you back to Tristram to venture through 16 levels with the original music and graphics filters to make the game look more like the original. The experience will be released as part of a special anniversary patch which will hit test realms next week ahead of its official release.
