Echtra Games and Perfect World Entertainment have announced that Torchlight 3 will leave Steam Early Access on October 13th. It will be available for PC, Xbox One and PS4 for $39.99. The Switch version will launch “later” this year.
Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games and co-founder of the Torchlight series, stated that, “The full release of Torchlight 3 wouldn’t have been possible without all of the incredible work from the entire Echtra team and our excellent community of Early Access players. We’ve put our heart into this new adventure and it has been awesome getting so much support from players while the game has been in live development.
“With the significant changes we’ve made throughout Torchlight 3 journey in Early Access, we have done our best to meaningfully integrate players’ feedback as much as possible into the game as we march toward launch. Next month, we can’t wait to welcome all players to the Frontier!”
Originally a free to play title called Torchlight Frontiers, Torchlight 3 takes place 100 years after the second game with players battling the Netherim. They’ll need to traverse across three Acts to ultimately push back the threat. Along with crafting, pets and maps making a return, there are new mechanics like fort building to get involved with. Forts can be used to upgrade gear and house monuments and laurels.
Four new classes will also be available along with over 100 Legendary items, Relics for different active and passive skills and much more. A good amount of content has been added since the early access launch but we’ll see how the final product fares next month. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
