Torchlight 3 picks up 100 years after its predecessor ended, with the Ember Empire waning. Players return to Novastraia to defend against the Netherim the same way they always have in Torchlight: by teaming up and collecting endless loot.
Torchlight 3’s development has been a confused process, beginning as the free-to-play MMO Torchlight Frontiers. Over the course of that development, the game has gone through public alphas and betas, the last of which concluded in May. The game went on to launch its Early Access campaign June 13.
Developer Echtra Games and publisher Perfect World Entertainment have not announced when they plan to push the game out of Early Access.
