Torchlight III has pushed out gifts for alpha testers, even if you tested Torchlight Frontiers

We’re inching close to Torchlight III’s inevitable launch announcement here, but in the meantime, PWE and Ectra Games have been patching up the beta. The latest patch follows up on last week’s mainline update, chiefly fixing bugs.

“A quick hotfix this morning to address a few bugs that went out with the “Update for Dummies” patch last Tuesday. This should alleviate a few of the critical issues that players have been reporting, but we are still in the process of reviewing incoming bugs and feedback for the next upcoming update.”

Meanwhile, if you tested the game during alpha – or back when it was still an MMO named Torchlight Frontiers (RIP), make sure you check your email because Echtra and PWE are sending ’round participation rewards. Mine showed up as a Steam key email on Monday, offering an adorable pupper pet, banner, and multiple hero statues.

I didn’t dig into it because I don’t care, but it seemed that the “free gifts” were only if I bought the retail game…so no.

Dug From The Earth

TL3 Devs, “Why arent people who tested the game buying it?”…. “I know, we didnt give them free stuff! Thats gotta be the reason, right?”

This here… yet another prime example of just how detached game devs are from their actual customers.


Not usually the devs themselves but the higher ups that push numbers all day thinking they know everything.


Imagine getting in-game gifts to a game I never bought after play testing Torchlight Frontiers.

That’s a hard YIKES from me.


i was a alpha tester as well… i signed up day one for testing and was delighted when i got in..

fast forward to the steam launch of early access… i bought in, and actually enjoyed the gameplay- played for maybe and hour and ahalf….. but around the same time a ton of negative reviews starting popping in from various players, to the point where (correct me if im wrong) i think it even dipped into the negative avrg review range……

considering this is a coop online game like diablo, i decided to refund my copy even though i enjoyed it, due to fearing what the game would be like with no communty after all it is a multiplayer game….

i am currently hoping as they polish things that the avrg review rating gets better thus bringing in more hesitant people like me. but until that happens i will keep watching from the sidelines hoping it succeeds , after all, i was a huge fan of tl 1 and 2, and im hoping 3 can continue that legacy


They pretty much made it like diablo games once it became Torchlight III – like Torchlight II it will be less mmo and more single player with multiplayer option
