After an interesting development cycle, which led Echtra Games to change the free-to-play, online-only Torchlight Frontiers into Torchlight 3, we’re officially getting a release date.
Torchlight 3 will leave Early Access and launch on PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 13, for $39.99. For those clamoring for a Switch version, it’s coming “later this year.”
The hack and slash action-RPG features four unique classes, a customizable, account-based fort, and a procedurally generated world filled with monsters and loot.
Pets have become a trademark of the series, and return in Torchlight 3. Your furry, flying, or scaly friends can store extra loot and even run back to town to sell them, so you don’t have to stop the hacking or the slashing.
Each version of Torchlight 3 will feature a unique Fairy pet at launch:
- Steam: Violet Glittersprite
- PlayStation 4: Azure Glittersprite
- Xbox One: Verdant Glittersprite
- Switch: Ashen Glittersprite
“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,” said Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games and co-founder of the Torchlight series. “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’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!”
Torchlight 3 supports up to four player online co-op as well as offline single player. It has not yet been rated by the ESRB, but previous games in the series were T for Teen.
