Torchlight Series Returns After Six Years With ‘Torchlight Frontiers’

Torchlight Frontiers

It will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.

The latest iteration will be a shared-world action-RPG, bringing back numerous features and mechanics the Torchlight series is known for, with Schaefer assembling "an all-star team of developers", according to Perfect World Senior Vice President, Yoon Im.

Torchlight isn't dead. It was just sleeping, apparently, because today Torchlight Frontiers was announced. It makes you wonder why Runic Games was even shuttered if this new studio is basically the same team.

WhatsApp Officially Rolls Out Forward Message Limit for Indian Users
This is definitely bad news for WhatsApp , as it has been going through some turbulent times, especially in India. Facebook is already facing challenges in several markets due to its business policies.

Echtra Games is of course led by Runic Games co-founder Max Schaefer, and Frontiers takes place within the same universe as the series' previous games.

However, the video's description says that the game is set in a "persistent and dynamically generated world" where people are online and interacting with one another to fight enemies and fight treasures. Torchlight Frontiers will be a living, breathing universe that will still feel uniquely Torchlight, while we add our own creative spin to the game. Called Torchlight Frontiers, it is coming from Arc, Echtra, and Perfect World in 2019. Show attendees can be among the first to play an early demo of the game and meet the Echtra Games developers by visiting the Perfect World Entertainment booths at Gamescom in Germany (Hall 8, Booth# B41) from August 21 - 25 and PAX West in Seattle (Booth # 1115) from August 31 - September 3.

It's nice to see the franchise make a return, honestly.

When Torchlight and Hob developer Runic Games was shut down past year, the developer said: "For those that love the Torchlight series, there will be some news coming". The trailer itself certainly doesn't tell us much.

Despite the closure, Perfect World promised it was "committed to supporting and growing Runic Games' beloved franchises".

Torchlight was released in 2009 and Torchlight 2 followed in 2012.
