Perfect World Entertainment have today announced their latest Action-RPG in the Torchlight series, Torchlight Frontiers.
Development on Torchlight Frontiers is led by veteran developers who were responsible for the games that defined the ARPG genre, including the original Diablo and Torchlight franchises. No set release date has been revealed but it will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Yoon Im, senior vice president of publishing at Perfect World Entertainment stated:
Perfect World Entertainment has had a strong working relationship with Max Schaefer, dating back to the original Torchlight game, and we believe in his vision to evolve the Torchlight series. Max has put together an all-star team of developers, and we continue to be amazed by the sheer level of talent and wealth of experience that they bring to Torchlight Frontiers. We’re proud to have Echtra Games as a part of the company.
The game will see teams of friends come together in order to ack and slack their way through a vibrant world, discover ancient ruins of lost civilizations and brave dungeons filled with riches and dangerous creatures. Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games also added:
Evolving the Torchlight universe into a shared world has always been a goal for the franchise, and I’m excited that we’re finally able to make it a reality. Torchlight Frontiers will be a living, breathing universe that will still feel uniquely Torchlight, while we add our own creative spin to the game. The team is building something truly special, and we can’t wait for fans to play it for the first time at Gamescom and PAX West.
