We know that gamers were probably a bit disappointed that Blizzard didn’t announce Diablo 4 at BlizzCon last year, although to be fair Diablo 4 was only a rumor to begin with. Instead what Blizzard announced was a new Necromancer class that they will be introducing to the game later this year.
For gamers who are interested in learning more about the Necromancer class, at least in addition to what was being revealed, Blizzard announced last week that they will be hosting a Q&A session later on this week on the 26th of January to be exact. The Q&A session is expected to be streamed live on Facebook so do tune in if you are interested.

In case you missed out on Blizzard’s announcement last year, the Necromancer will be coming to the game in the form of the Rise of the Necromancer pack. It will be available as an in-game purchase meaning that it will not come free of charge unlike some of the other additions that Blizzard has introduced to the game in the past.
It will be an interesting strategy as the Diablo franchise for the most part has kind of steered clear of in-game purchases, unless you count the failed Auction House experiment where players could buy items for their characters using gold or real-life money.
