Get your Skellybobs together

As a part of today’s Xbox and Bethesda Games showcase, Activision Blizzard released the trailer for its fifth and final class for Diablo IV — speak with the dead and command the armies of the grave, as you step into the terrifying visage of The Necromancer.

In typical Blizzard fashion, the reveal was accompanied by a grim ‘n’ gory cinematic sequence, wherein our titular deathtalker comes upon a party of corpses, using their unholy abilities to learn of their fate. Our anti-hero then embarks in a showdown with a frightening pack of lycanthropes, evening the score with a host of Ray Harryhausen lovin’ skeletal army.

The reveal of the Necromancer was followed by brand new gameplay footage from Diablo IV, along with a release window of 2023, when the title will arrive on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
