It would seem the third iteration of Torchlight is coming. I was a big fan of Torchlight 2. Simple drop in and out co-op with friends is something we need more of. That’s why Torchlight Frontiers has my attention.
So what makes this one different from the last two games? Procedurally generated levels mixed in with MMO services. According to our plug, the CEO of Echtra Games said
“It is a shared world with persistent elements and instanced elements. We’re just always shying away from the term MMO because everytime someone says that word, everyone has a wildly different, very specific definition of what that means.”
I prefer a well-crafted level, but I’m willing to give their take on procedurally generated levels since I liked the past two game. No release date for the game, but I will keep my eye on this one.
