Update: We were right! Diablo III: Eternal Collection is coming to Xbox One on June 27. Blizzard just confirmed this today.
It looks like Diablo III is getting another edition on Xbox One. Blizzard charged $60 for the original game, another $60 for the Reaper of Souls expansion and we imagine another $60 for this. While we don’t know much about the Eternal Collection, it’s safe to assume that it’ll include content like the new Necromancer class. Hopefully it’ll be more than just that but we won’t know for sure until Blizzard makes a formal announcement. Here’s hoping that they do because there’s going to be a lot of speculation about this Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) listing. We can’t imagine gamers will be pleased if they have to pay a lot for new content for such an old game.
With that said, the upcoming Necromancer is a powerful class. The character is heavily focused on blood. Blood will not only gush around as creatures are torn into, but Necromancers will be able to use skills like Blood Rush to effectively teleport by dissolving into blood and then reforming at their destination. Playstyles will be centered around evasion and having your summoned creatures do the majority of the work.
That’s not all though. Necromancers will also be able to use their own blood–basically health–to boost damage. This is definitely a new way to play Diablo III and it might just be the best class yet. Hopefully we’ll receive information about Diablo III: Eternal Collection soon now that the cat’s out of the bag! Since this ESRB listing will create a lot of confusion, Blizzard should clarify what’s in the Eternal Collection before E3 2017. We’ll update you as soon as we know more. Though, we feel that it’s safe to assume that this is going to be Diablo III: Reaper of Souls with the new Necromancer class and some additional character-focused content. Let’s just pray it doesn’t cost another $60.
