Torchlight 3 official artwork and logo

After the free-to-play and MMO inspired Torchlight Frontiers ended up testing poorly, the developers opted to redesign it from the ground up and re-release it as Torchlight 3. The initial version of Torchlight 3 launched into Early Access back in June, and unfortunately it did so alongside quite a few problems.

Only a couple of months have gone by since then, and already Torchlight 3 has been unleashed onto both PC and consoles. Needless to say, many of the issues still remain, and as such the reviews are disappointingly mediocre across the board.

So if you're like me and you were hoping for Torchlight 3 to be the great successor that Torchlight 1 and 2 deserve, I'm afraid we're both out of luck. The developers have promised to continue working on Torchlight 3 after launch, however, so there is still a chance it can rise from the ashes and stand shoulder to shoulder with its predecessors. It's not a big chance given how much work there is left to do, but if No Man's Sky can manage it, Torchlight 3 certainly isn't beyond hope either.

As for what exactly Torchlight 3 looks like in action, that you can find out through the recently posted trailer. Have a peek, it's a fairly short one:
