Torchlight Frontiers Announced, Due Next Year on PC/PS4/XB1, Beta Signup Open

Torchlight Frontiers Trailer

It's set in the same universe as the previous two games and it brings back numerous series' signature features and mechanics, but it takes place in a persistent and dynamically generated world.

When developer Runic Games closed its doors a year ago, I'm sure many fans weren't expecting to hear about another Torchlight in the future. Perfect World will share additional details about the game at a later date. No release window has been confirmed for Torchlight Frontiers as yet, but you can check out the announcement trailer below for a teaser.

Details beyond that are pretty slim, but Perfect World says Frontiers "combines the heart of the beloved Torchlight series with a shared, persistent and dynamically generated world". The game is being developed by Echtra Games following the shut down of Runic Games in 2017. The rest of the team is made up of personnel who worked on the Diablo and Torchlight franchises.

"'Torchlight Frontiers" will be a living, breathing universe that will still feel uniquely "Torchlight, ' while we add our own creative spin to the game".

Patriots to adjust Brady's contract with added incentives
The adjustments are similar to what the Patriots did past year with tight end Rob Gronkowski's deal, the source told Schefter. Even with his salary likely to sit at roughly $20 million, Brady will be a bargain among quarterbacks of his calibre.

Popular role-playing game franchise Torchlight is finally making the jump from PC to PlayStation, but perhaps not in the form many would have wanted. 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 had purchased a majority stake in Runic back in 2010 before buying it outright.

Announcement of the closure prompted Runic studio head Marsh Lefler to reassure the public, stating "you haven't heard the last of us".

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