Torchlight III enters early access on PC
Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games announced the Steam Early Access release of Torchlight III during the PC Gaming Show.
This early access version of the game contains four playable classes, two complete acts of the story, the custom Fort feature, and more than 100 legendary items. However, developer Echtra Games warns that only multiplayer mode is available during early access.
“Players will be able to play in groups of four and share certain public spaces in the game (like towns) with other players – up to 40 per instance,” the developer added.
The final version of Torchlight III will feature a complete third act, a new, unannounced end game experience, and the ability to play in single-player mode without an internet connection. Both Act 3 and the new end game experience will be made available during early access for players to test.
“Torchlight III entering Steam Early Access marks the exciting return of the Torchlight franchise that ARPG fans know and love,” Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games and co-founder of the Torchlight franchise said. “Player feedback is incredibly important to us, and we look forward to working with the community as we continue to expand Torchlight III to make it the best Torchlight title yet. With Torchlight III in Early Access, it’s time for all adventurers, including longtime Torchlight fans and newcomers, to gather their wits and brave the frontier!”
Torchlight III is available now on PC via Steam Early Access for $29.99.
