Torchlight Frontiers Rebranded as Torchlight III
Perfect World Entertainment announced that the previously announced Torchlight Frontiers will launch as Torchlight III. In the announcement trailer below, series creator Max Schaefer states the game will be transitioning from a free-to-play experience to a premium title. The release date for Torchlight III has yet to be made public outside of a summer 2020 launch window, but Steam will host closed alpha testing for the game on January 29, 2020.
Torchlight III is a fast-paced adventure dungeon-crawling RPG that will be available to play online or offline. Upon starting the game players will be able to choose between an alpaca, owl, or canine as a companion pet. Players will be able to choose between four unique character classes, collect tons of gear, and build and upgrade a fort. Three of the character classes have been confirmed — the Dusk Mage, the Forged, and the Railmaster — with the fourth yet to be revealed.
