Ah, the Torchlight series. I remember back in my younger days, playing the original Torchlight with my dad on the Xbox 360. Those were much simpler times, but it’s been 11 years since then. Torchlight has grown and evolved into a larger series, getting a second entry back in 2012. More recently though Torchlight III was announced and has been in Steam Early Access for some time. Now though, it’s time for fans of the series to step back into this charming action-RPG. Torchlight III is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One for $39.99. Nintendo Switch users can enjoy the game starting October 22. You can find the launch trailer below.
What is Torchlight III?
Torchlight III takes what made the series extra special, and brings them back in a refined and fresh form. For example, the renowned hack and slash combat and pet system are both back in a fresh format. Who doesn’t love a furry companion accompanying them for some fantasy slaughter? Joining these of course is a fresh story, looking to have you and up to three friends take on an evil that threatens to destroy this peaceful world once again. This comes with new features and quality-of-life updates that console and PC players have come to expect from similar titles.
Everything is going for Torchlight III to be a humbly charming action RPG, with the developers believing in the vision as well. Max Schaefer CEO of developer Echtra Games and co-founder of Torchlight, had this to say:
Torchlight III has arrived, and we at Echtra are beyond ecstatic for gamers to finally join the adventure. Development on this game has had its share of twists and turns, but we think the end result was well worth the wait. A huge thank you to the fans who have patiently stayed with us through this journey. Your support means everything. Now go jump in and have fun exploring the Frontier!”
