Torchlight III "Welcome to the Frontier" trailer covers pets, classes, relics, and more

By Heidi Nicholas,
Torchlight III — previously Torchlight Frontiers — is out tomorrow, October 13th, while out now is the new "Welcome to the Frontier" trailer, which takes a deep dive into what to expect from the game.

Torchlight III is set a century after Torchlight II. The Ember Empire is now under threat from the Netherim, and you'll be picking a Relic and Hero Class before heading out into the frontier to gather resources, craft, build, upgrade your fort, and adding pet stables. Pets will be pretty important. Aside from carrying little saddlebags with all your kit, and looking adorable while doing it, they will also have special abilities to fight enemies, and you can send them to sell items in town. It's a pretty good idea — who could haggle with a Labrador? — and the trailer shows a variety of dogs, cats, and birds, and, brilliantly, a llama, all zooming alongside their human friends. Each version of Torchlight III also gets its own exclusive fairy pet: Xbox players will get the Verdant Glittersprite, while other platforms get other Glittersprite variants.

There are four Hero Classes — the Dusk Mage, the Forged, the Railmaster, and the Sharpshooter — and five Relics: Bane, Blood Drinker, Coldheart, Electrode, and Flaming Destroyer. Torchlight III features single-player and multiplayer with online four-player co-op. The game's site adds that "this fast-paced dungeon crawler brings fans back to the beloved Torchlight universe to hack and slash their way through a brand new world filled with hordes of goblins, undead and other dangerous Netherim creatures." The game launches tomorrow, October 13th. Will you be getting Torchlight III? Let us know in the comments!
