The adventure is set in the mining settlement of Torchlight, a boomtown founded on the discovery of rich veins of Ember – a rare and mysterious ore with the power to enchant or corrupt all that it contacts. This corruptive power may have dire consequences however, and players set out into the nearby mountains and depths below to discover the full extent of Ember’s influence on the civilizations that have come before.
Players will choose from among three character classes, and venture from the safety of the town of Torchlight into randomly generated dungeon levels, with a huge variety of creepy monsters, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete. The endless randomization ensures a long-lived gameplay experience.
Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce 2 MX 64MB/Radeon X1270 and it should be paired with either a Athlon XP 1800+/Pentium 4 1.8GHz CPU to match the Torchlight recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. 512 MB will also be needed to achieve the Torchlight rec specs and get 60FPS. Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Torchlight needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 9. We suggest a 19 year old PC to play smoothly.
