Torchlight III is Out Now on PC in Early Access
Torchlight III has surprisingly launched on Steam and is now available to be played via early access.
Without any warning, developer Echtra Games today released Torchlight III on PC in its early access phase.
Available now on Steam, and announced as part of the PC Gaming Show, Torchlight III is now purchasable for $29.99. This edition of the game, which is obviously different from the finalized version that will release later on, lets players begin building their character from one of four different classes. Additionally, it allows you to begin exploring the wilderness, putting together your fort, and collecting some gear. Multiplayer functionality is also live in this early access phase, too.
Echtra Games released a new trailer to coincide with the early access launch that you can find right here:
“Torchlight III entering Steam Early Access marks the exciting return of the Torchlight franchise that ARPG fans know and love,” said Max Schaefer, the CEO of Echtra Games, via an accompanying press release. “Player feedback is incredibly important to us, and we look forward to working with the community as we continue to expand Torchlight III to make it the best Torchlight title yet. With Torchlight III in Early Access, it’s time for all adventurers, including longtime Torchlight fans and newcomers, to gather their wits and brave the frontier!”
Echtra Games has said that more content will begin heading to Torchlight III in the coming months. These new additions that will slowly roll out will eventually lead to the game’s full launch, per usual with early access games of this ilk.
Torchlight III still doesn’t have a specific 1.0 release date just yet, but the game will be coming to both Xbox One and PS4 down the road as well.
