Torchlight Frontiers announced for 2019

Torchlight series returns with shared-world action-RPG Torchlight Frontiers

Torchlight Frontiers brings the series back as a “shared-world action-RPG”

Despite this, the shared-world action-RPG does feature elements of what made the original Torchlight games so popular.

Perfect World will reveal more information about the game at unspecified date in the future. We're proud to have Echtra Games as a part of the company. The YouTube trailer description does mention a "persistent and dynamically generated world", which could mean procedural generation. It sounds a lot like Torchlight Frontiers will lean closer towards an MMO style ARPG.

It's set in the same universe as the previous two games and it brings back numerous series' signature features and mechanics, but it takes place in a persistent and dynamically generated world. Even though the original developer, Runic Games, has closed the series is going to continue with the newly announced Torchlight Frontiers.

"Torchlight Frontiers will be a living, breathing universe that will still feel uniquely Torchlight, with our own creative spin".

Ban on single-use plastic bags will reduce council costs
Caroline Marr, director of small clothing retailer The Carpenters Daughter, also welcomed the ban. "We should stop using plastic". The European Commission has a strategy to tackle the 10 top polluting single use plastics.

No word on when the game will be released, but those who are attending Gamescom and PAX West will be able to check out demos of it. "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", he said. The game is planned to release in 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. It had purchased a majority stake in Runic back in 2010 before buying it outright.

Runic Games may have closed late previous year shortly after releasing the gorgeous action/adventure game Hob, but that doesn't mean the end of the Torchlight franchise.

Despite the closure, Perfect World promised it was "committed to supporting and growing Runic Games' beloved franchises".
