Torchlight 3 wasn’t exactly a hit at launch. Many players criticized, among other things, the remnants of the free-to-play time and for us, too, the title was one of the ten biggest game disappointments of 2020.
Since then, the developers have been delivering more and more content to improve the game. The developers gave us a small preview of the next update in a blog post.
Probably the most exciting new piece of content in the update is a new playable class, the cursed captain. He embodies the Summoner archetype and can therefore summon his ghostly crew, consisting of gunners, shooters, and even his first mate.
For those who don’t want to control an army of undead, the cursed captain also offers some explosive abilities and curse magic. He uses doubloons as a resource, with which he either pays his crew for their services or loads his cannon. Incidentally, this, along with a new type of armor, the cloak, is only available for the cursed captain.
In addition to the new class, the spring update also brings over 40 new pets, improvements to the user interface, and new fort decorations. Some bug fixes and a function to reset an instance are also included.
The new update should be released free of charge for all players in about 40 days and the developers want to give a deeper insight into the new class before the release. Torchlight 3 is currently also part of the Xbox Game Pass.
