Echtra Games continues the march towards Torchlight 3’s release with the recent reveal of Forts. These will be available to players to customize and each will have its own unique look. Forts become available in Act 1 of the campaign when you’re sent to claim one from some goblins.
Along with different cosmetics and decorations to fill a fort with, players can also place any crafted items within. From there, it’s possible to stack items, move them around and so on. There’s also a Fort Inventory to safely store any items.
More decorations can be unlocked through playing the game, completing quests and going through tiers of Contracts (with special Contracts offering better items). Another nice twist is that you can encounter another adventurer’s Fort in the wilderness and vice versa. It’s even possible to add certain stations like Luck Trees and Enchanting Stations, the latter sharing one’s recipes with the world.
Forts are also account-wide and can be used by all of your characters. All the resources and upgrades within will also be available, which should help when leveling any alts. Torchlight 3 is currently slated to release this Summer for PC and later for consoles.
