After making an appearance on Steam Early Access, Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games’ Torchlight III will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 13.
Set a century after the events of Torchlight II, Torchlight III will pay host to hack- and-slash combat, a vibrant world, online 4-player cooperative multiplayer (and offline single-player), and its signature pet system.
New to this entry are three acts, fully customizable forts, unique Relic subclasses, the challenging end-game experience “Fazeer Shah’s Dun-Djinn,” and the multi-tiered progression system “Contracts.”

According to Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games and co-founder of the Torchlight franchise:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“The full release of Torchlight III 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 III’s 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!”[/testimonials]
The Nintendo Switch version will launch later this year.
