[Buy on Steam] Perfect World Entertainment and developer Echtra Games today announced that Torchlight III, the fast-paced dungeon crawler, has officially launched on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam for USD39.99. As the latest installment in the ARPG cult classic Torchlight franchise, Torchlight III brings back signature mechanics that defined the series, like hack and slash combat and the beloved pet system, while offering an exciting new story and features that appeal to a new generation of console and PC players.
It has been over a hundred years since the events of Torchlight II, where the great heroes of Torchlight defeated The Dark Alchemist and sealed the Netherlord’s heart inside the Clockwork Core. The heroes brought peace to the world of Novastraia, but now the Netherim have returned and the Ember Empire finds itself on the brink of collapse. To save Novastraia, players have to gather their wits and brave the frontier as they search for fame, glory and new adventures to become the legends the world needs them to be.
Before the quest begins, players create their heroes by choosing between 4 classes: Dusk Mage, Forged, Railmaster, and Sharpshooter, 5 powerful Relics and a pet to accompany them on their adventures: a fluffy alpaca, a swift owl or a loyal canine retriever. With 20 class and Relic combinations, each offering a unique playstyle, and a wide range of choices of where to place skill points at, players have the power to be the hero they want to be.
Longtime Torchlight fans will be happy to discover that Torchlight III features the same signature gameplay mechanics that set the original series apart from other ARPGs, including satisfying hack and slash combat, a charming and vibrant world, both online 4-player cooperative multiplayer and offline single-player, plus the beloved pet system.
Torchlight III also introduces new features, such as 3 epic acts, unique Relic subclasses, fully customizable forts and a challenging end-game experience in “Fazeer Shah’s Dun-Djinn.” In addition, the game includes a multi-tiered “Contracts” progression system that lets players earn Fame and unlock elite items, along with a myriad of quests and boss battles. All of these features contribute to the epic return of the iconic franchise and an even more accessible adventure for new Torchlight players. Get the game now on Steam!
