Torchlight Frontiers Announced

Back in 2009, the world was in dire need of a top-down Diablo-like RPG experience and Runic Games gave us Torchlight. It was a big hit and its sequel was even better. It has been almost six years since the release of Torchlight II and we never thought we would ever see another entry in the series after Runic Games shut down last year. Today Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games have announced Torchlight Frontiers, a new shared world action RPG which is said to be the next evolution in the Torchlight series.

Echtra Games is led by Runic Games co-founder Max Schaefer. Torchlight Frontiers takes place in the same universe as the past games but we know very little about it as of now. Perfect World says that Frontiers "combines the heart of the beloved Torchlight series with a shared, persistent and the dynamically generated world.

Players will collect pets and band together with friends in a hack and slash-styled combat. You will visit ancient ruins, lost cities and dangerous dungeons doing battle against the most dangerous creatures. More details about the game will be revealed at a later date but Perfect World says this;

Evolving the Torchlight universe into a shared world has always been a goal for the franchise, and I’m excited that we’re finally able to make it a reality. Torchlight Frontiers will be a living, breathing universe that will still feel uniquely Torchlight, while we add our own creative spin to the game. The team is building something truly special, and we can’t wait for fans to play it for the first time at Gamescom and PAX West.

Gamescom is later this month and begins on 21 August 2018 so we will have to wait until then. You can sign up for the beta at the moment in case you want to jump the gun and get in before it releases. Head over to the beta page to sign up. The game is set to release on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Check out the reveal trailer below.
