Torchlight Frontiers is a hack’n’slash action RPG. The title was developed by Echtra Games - a new studio founded by the veterans of Runic Games, a studio that was closed in 2017 and that created Torchlight and Torchlight II.

Plot

The game takes place in the fantasy realm known from the previous entries in the series. This time, the players are leaving the civilized areas and they enter the border of the land of men and their allies. This place is visited by the greatest heroes from all over the world, who are trying to neutralize the threat from the hordes of goblins, undead, and animals tainted by the magic of the mineral known as Ember.

Mechanics

The mechanics of Torchlight Frontiers expand on the solutions from the previous entries in the series. The game is a classic hack’n’slash action RPG in which the players are traveling through the world, collecting items, completing quests, developing character, and defeating hordes of enemies by using a very action-based combat system.

These regular activities were enriched with MMO features. In Torchlight Frontiers, the world is shared between all players on the server. At the same time, a large part of this world – dungeons and places where the adventures on the surface take place – is randomly generated, always providing new challenges for the players.

Despite the MMO features, the game is focused on cooperation adventures, in which groups of a few players are fighting with enemies controlled by artificial intelligence. A pet system makes the game more interesting, enabling the players to train their animals. These pets are helping the characters in combat. They can also perform many other useful actions. For example, they can go to the city and sell items.

Technical aspects

The game features attractive three-dimensional graphics that use the style similar to the one used in two previous entries in the series. The visuals are filled with light colors and the character designs are slightly grotesque.
