Rise of the Necromancer is a DLC pack for Diablo III. It released on June 27, 2017.


The pack costs $14.99 USD.[1] To use the pack, one needs to have Reaper of Souls installed for PC or have the Ultimate Evil Edition for console. New achievements will be implemented along with the Necromancer.[2][3] Purchasing the pack for the PC/Xbox One/PlayStation 4 only gives players access to the platform they bought it for.[4] To buy the pack, PC/Mac players can purchase it through an in-game store that will be implemented in Diablo III, or the Blizzard Store.
