Since June, Torchlight 3 has been in Early Access and has gotten quite a few updates since then thanks to community feedback. Now the developers are happy to announce that Torchlight 3 will be leaving Early Access on October 13th.
The Epic Games Store has been giving out some great titles recently, but it seems like the big and loud titles are starting to calm down a bit, understandably of course, they can’t just give out games like Grand Theft Auto V every week. Nevertheless, we only have 1 title available this week for free, but arguably that’s more than enough.
Ho, adventurers! The next chapter in the iconic action RPG franchise is finally here, as Torchlight 3 has officially been released on Steam Early Access. Gather your gear, fight alone or with friends, and defend the land from the oncoming invasion. Or at least part of it, as only the first 2 acts are available to players. More content is planned down the line as the developers test new features.
A week ago we got our first look at player forts in Torchlight 3, detailing some key aspects of the customization we can find when Torchlight 3 releases later this year. Players can fully customize their lot of land any way they want, with whatever decorations they craft or find in the world. Now the developers have released a slightly better look at the upcoming sequel with the video below.
Torchlight 3 has had an interesting development process, after what was initially a free-to-play Torchlight Frontiers, it has now turned into a fully fledged sequel. There’s still not a huge amount we know about the game as of yet, and there’s still no exact release date. But a recent update looks into one of the more interesting features in the sequel: customizable forts.
Torchlight 2 will take players to the world of Novastraia where they can traverse a shared world, explore new dungeons, and build a fort of your very own that you can improve. With lots of features, new characters and classes, and an updated pets system (oh yes!), Torchlight 3 is sure to be the definitive version of the Torchlight franchise.
The king is dead, long live the king! The free-to-play Torchlight Frontiers has been thrown on the scrap heap. Well, sort of. Torchlight Frontiers has now become Torchlight 3, a full blown sequel.
Runic Games may be dead and buried but Torchlight lives on. The action-RPG series is being a new lease of life with the announcement of Torchlight Frontiers, a new shared-world procedural action-RPG that will allow players to team up and slash their way through a dynamically generated world.
Following swiftly in the footsteps of sister studio Motiga, Torchlight and Hob developer Runic Games has been shut down by publisher Perfect Worlds.
Double Damage, a new studio formed by founders of Torchlight developer Runic Games, has released the first trailer for its upcoming sci fi RPG Rebel Galaxy. The first impressions look pretty intriguing, promising a massive, randomly generated universe for would-be pilots to explore.
More and more games these days are moving away from set-piece stories and letting the community create their own content via mods.
