As Torchlight III sits on the verge of release, there’s an odd moment of calm for a game that’s experienced a rollercoaster of development over the past two years. It’s a title that’s gone from a free-to-play MMO to a buy-to-play online ARPG and that’s renovated its systems countless times.the studio reminisced about the journey from 2016 to today. The story of Torchlight III’s creation here is anything but smooth, but at least it’s honest and shows some self-awareness by its creators. “Lessons were learned, and fixes applied,” could be the motto of this project.
“But we’re not done yet,” Echtra Games concluded. “We know that a game never really feels complete and we are extremely excited to share what is coming up for Torchlight III as we move towards launch and beyond.”
Torchlight III is releasing on Tuesday, October 13th. The launch trailer, which debuted at RazerCon this weekend, is below.
