Torchlight III will exit Early Access and fully launch in October for PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Torchlight III will be coming out of its Early Access phase on October 13th, Perfect World Entertainment has announced. That day will mark the full release for the new entry to the series for PC, PS4, and Xbox One with a price tag of $39.99. Those who played the Early Access version of Torchlight III on PC will get the upgrade to the full version for free. The Nintendo Switch version will not be released on October 13th and will instead be released later in 2020.

Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games and co-founder of the Torchlight franchise, said:


“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/ 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 significant 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!”

In Torchlight III, players will be able to create a character based on one of four classes. Those classes are The Dusk Mage, The Forged, The Railmaster, and The Sharpshooter. Each of these characters can be equipped with Relics too such as Electrode that emits an electric surge and Coldheart that lets players freeze or slow down enemies. Pets are also part of Torchlight III and all players will get the Glittersprite regardless of platform though the appearance will differ. Those on Steam will get the Violet one, Xbox One players will get the Verdant one, PS4 players the Azure one, and Switch players will get the Ashen Glittersprite.
