The latest Diablo 3 expansion will be playable once Battle.net’s maintenance is out of the way.


Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer is out today – not to mention the Eternal Collection – but the launch isn’t a straightforward one. Battle.net still has some maintenance issue to address before the expansion is playable, so we have just a little bit longer to wait. Blizzard currently has a Twitch stream running to announce the Necromancer’s arrival, but if you can’t watch right now, you can always follow the guide below:

  • NA/SA/ANZ: 10:00 a.m. PDT
  • EU: 11:00 p.m. CEST
  • KR/TW: 2:00 a.m. KST, June 29
  • CN: 5:00 a.m. CST, June 29

On top of the expansion’s content and new Challenge Rifts, Rise of the Necromancer also provides players with a half-formed golem pet, cosmetic items, two additional character slots, and more.

The expansion is currently available for purchase on PC, PS4, and Xbox One stores for $14.99, while the Eternal Collection will cost $39.99 for a limited time.
