TORCHLIGHT III Arrives on PS4, Xbox One, and PC October 13; Coming to Switch Later This Year
San Francisco-based game studio Echtra Games has officially announced that the long-awaited follow-up to 2012's Torchlight II — previously known as Torchlight Frontiers — will make its debut as soon as next month.
According to Echtra Games, the highly anticipated threequel is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) on October 13, with its recently revealed Nintendo Switch port launching sometime this year.
It's worth remembering that the troubled hack'n'slash has been available in Steam Early Access since June.
"The full release of Torchlight III wouldn’t have been possible without all of the incredible work from the entire Echtra team and our excellent community of Early Access players," Echtra Games CEO and and Co-Founder of the Torchlight series Max Schaefer said. "We’ve put our heart into this new adventure and it has been awesome getting so much support from players while the game has been in live development. With the [...] changes we’ve made throughout Torchlight III’s journey in Early Access, we have done our best to meaningfully integrate players’ feedback as much as possible into the game as we march toward launch. Next month, we can’t wait to welcome all players to the Frontier!"
Considering that the full version of Torchlight III will finally make its debut in October, it's safe to say that we will learn a whole lot more about the fast-approaching Diablo-like video game sooner rather than later.
It’s been centuries since the events of Torchlight II, and the Ember Empire is in decline. In Torchlight III, Novastraia is again under threat of invasion and it’s up to you to defend against the Netherim and its allies. Gather your wits and brave the frontier to find fame, glory, and a new adventure!
Torchlight III is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) on October 13, 2020; will arrive on Nintendo Switch later this year.
