has been announced. This entry into the Torchlight series is set in the same universe and can be experienced by many players at the same time. It sounds like an MMO, especially with Perfect World Entertainment of Neverwinter
and Star Trek Online
publishing the title, but developer Echtra Games is straying away from calling Frontiers
that, describing the environment as a "shared, persistent and dynamically generated world."
According to Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games and formerly of Runic Games, Torchlight
's original developer, "evolving the Torchlight universe into a shared world has always been a goal for the franchise." In the game, players can "team up with friends and devoted pets to hack and slack their way through a vibrant world, discover ancient ruins of lost civilizations and brave dungeons filled with riches and dangerous creatures."
Details are still slim, however; the official trailer doesn't have any gameplay, and a handful of screenshots doesn't show much. More information will be released at August's Gamescom and September's PAX West.Torchlight Frontiers
is expected to release in 2019. Players can enroll in a beta on the game's official website
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Torchlight Frontiers achievements.
