It will never stop feeling weird to be reporting on genuine content updates for non-indie-studio MMOs in alpha, but here we are as PWE and Echtra Games have just announced a new update for Torchlight Frontiers. Update 7 is called Beast Buddies and is expected to deploy on July 16th with a pet overhaul.
“Every hero needs a sidekick, and in Torchlight Frontiers it’s your loyal pet companion. They’re your steadfast ally through thick and thin, and have always provided helpful skills like holding your loot, making trips to town, and supporting you in combat. In Torchlight Frontiers, we’ve started with those unique, foundational pet features and added on some new ones. With Update 7, players can now collect pets, swap between them, collect pet skills and assign them to their pet. We’ve also made sure that pets are both a part of a character’s strategy and that players can always choose their favorite pet without sacrificing gameplay power.”
Hate pets? Well, you’re probably in the wrong game. The wrong franchise, even, given how important your pet is in Torchlight in general. But there is more to the update, including the new friends list, new mobs, and a relic system revamp too.
