Blizzard Entertainment has revealed the Necromancer as the final class arriving in Diablo IV when it launches next year.
Joining the previously announced classes of Barbarian, Sorceress, Druid, and Rogue, the Necromancer rely on summoning the dead to do their bidding, bending blood and bone to their will. They wield a scythe to cut down any enemies who manage to avoid their hordes, and can even summon fearsome golems with special abilities.
Alongside a cinematic reveal for the Necromancer class, we also got a sumptuous five minutes of new gameplay released during yesterday's Xbox showcase, with a focus on player choice and customisation.
“At the heart of Diablo IV is player choice. With nearly limitless ways to play the game, players can choose to carve their own path forward, shaping their destiny and taking on the adventures they see fit. From character customization to exploration of the open world, social systems, to the end game, this journey will be in the hands of each player,” said senior community manager Adam Fletcher.
You can check out the Necromancer trailer and the gameplay showcase down below. Diablo IV is launching on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2023.
