Torchlight 3's new trailer highlights classes, relics, pets, forts

I'd forgotten how close to release Torchlight 3 is, but here's a new trailer to remind everyone that the cartoony action-RPG is leaving Early Access on October 13. This trailer reintroduces the classes and pets, which include a dog, an owl, and an alpaca, as well as the relics that act as Torchlight 3's subclasses, and player forts.

Torchlight 3 is being developed by Echtra since Runic, who were responsible for the first two Torchlight games, shut down in 2017. It's been in Early Access since June, after being retooled from Torchlight Frontiers. When our Christopher Livingston played Torchlight 3, he said that it felt like a step back even if he did love his steampunk robot. Hopefully the changes that have been made in the months since then have been improvements.

When Torchlight 3 leaves Early Access the price will be going up, from $US30 to $40. Buying the Steam version will get you an exclusive Violet Glittersprite fairy pet.

He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
