At this year’s Gamescom I was able to try out the demo for Torchlight Frontiers. The game is developed by the same creators as Torchlight I & II. I must admit that I have very little experience with these kinds of games, but I try keeping an open mind, and perhaps this was the game needed to convince me?
Set in the same beloved universe as Torchlight I and II, this shared-world action-RPG brings back many of the franchise’s signature features and mechanics that captured the hearts of ARPG fans around the world. Led by former Runic Games and Blizzard North co-founder, Max Schaefer, the team developing Torchlight Frontiers is comprised of veteran developers who were responsible for the games that defined the ARPG genre, including the original Diablo and Torchlight franchises. – About the game
It took me literally five minutes to play through the entire demo. So I will admit that the experience with Torchlight Frontiers was very limited. The little I did get to play was rather good fun though. I must say that this type of game still isn’t for me, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well it all worked, in addition to how good it looked. Obviously I can’t say for certain how this compares to other games in the same genre, but I will be surprised if you don’t like it, once you give it a try.
Torchlight Frontiers is releasing for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC sometime during 2019.
