The previously announced Torchlight Frontiers, which was previously announced as an action MMORPG, will be scaled back into a more traditional ARPG. As such, Perfect World Entertainment and developer Echtra Games announced that Torchlight Frontiers is being renamed as Torchlight 3. “During development, you often discover what type of product a game was meant to be and we found Torchlight Frontiers was meant to be a true successor to Torchlight 1 & 2,” said Echtra Games CEO Max Schaefer. “Based on this and extensive feedback from our Alpha testers, we decided it was time to take the game back to its roots and model it after the classic Torchlight games that ARPG fans have come to love.” [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2018/08/09/torchlight-frontiers-announcement-trailer"] Torchlight Frontiers was announced back in 2018 as a shared-world action-RPG where players can crawl through dungeons together. IGN came away with a positive impression of the shared world when we previewed Torchlight Frontiers in 2018. However, Echtra seems to believe that a more traditional approach is in order. Instead of going free-to-play, Torchlight 3 will be a purchasable game title with full access to all the playable content. So basically a traditional game release.

Torchlight 3 still has online multiplayer and character classes: The Dusk Mage, Forged, and Railmaster. [poilib element="accentDivider"] Matt Kim is a reporter for IGN. You can reach him on Twitter.
