Torchlight 3 review: A disappointing and dreary return

At the end of the first of three acts in Torchlight III, there's a boss character who repeats two of the same barks over and over. One is "This should be fun." The other is "Let's make it interesting." I couldn't help but hear both as the ignored voice of a quiet developer at the back of a Torchlight III planning meeting.Torchlight III feels an…

Torchlight 3 has finally ventured out of early access

Dungeon diving loot 'em up Torchlight 3 leaves early access today. Eight years after its stellar hack 'n' slash predecessor, with a studio closure and a complete pivot away from a shared-world online vision, it's kind of amazing the game's even made it this far. But now, Torchlight 3's long journey towards being a pretty alright goblin-puncher finally comes to an end.

Torchlight 3 wraps up its campaign with a new zone on Monday

A little under a month after hitting Early Access, Torchlight 3 is already preparing to wrap up its story campaign. The early access diablike's first major update adds Mount Echonok, the third and final piece of Torchlight's story map, closing out the campaign with steam-powered robots, cyborg scavengers, and cleans up the game's more egregious bugs this coming Monday.

Surprise! Torchlight 3 is out in early access right now

With no warning, Torchlight 3 launched into early access today. The action-RPG brings a whole heap more monsters to click on into they burst in a shower of coins and trousers. Torchlight 3 grew out of Torchlight Frontiers, which was to be a free-to-play persistent online game until they realised people didn't want that. Sounds like the launch is having some server problems, mind, which…

Torchlight 3 will share future plans on Friday when the closed beta ends

Next up in the hack and slashin' RPG series, Torchlight 3 previously had a change of heart after starting life as an online game called Torchlight Frontiers. Echtra Games have now announced that the currently-running closed beta will wrap this Friday. Now that they're back in familiar territory, Echtra are planning some livestreamed announcements on the same day to talk about when the game will be…

Torchlight 3 shows off its spirit-summoning sharpshooter class

Torchlight 3, which was previously known as Torchlight Frontiers before it pivoted back to the series' singleplayer roots, has put out a trailer showing off the first of its playable classes. Every hack an' slash 'em up is required to have a primarily ranged class so come take a gander at it. The sharpshooter appears to wield a bow, gun, and—wait, spirits? Alright then.

Star Trek Online is celebrating its 10th birthday with Star Trek: Picard and Discovery cameos

When Star Trek Online launched into 2010, Star Trek was dead as a TV show, living on only in rebooted movies which seemed not wholly fond of the shows. Ten years later, two Treks are boldly on the go - and the MMORPG taps both of them for its latest contentblast, named Legacy. A new quests call back to Trek old and new, revisiting some…

Torchlight 3, formerly known as Frontiers, is coming this summer

Echtra games have announced today that Torchlight 3, sequel to the nearly eight year old Torchlight 2, is coming this summer. But wait, aren't they also developing Torchlight Frontiers? Yes, they're the same thing. Sort of. Frontiers was originally planned for a 2019 release and eventually delayed into this year. It's starting out the new decade with a new name, new payment model, and new focus.

Magic: Legends looks to turn the card game all Diablo-y

A new trailer gives the first in-game peek at Magic: Legends, the action-RPG set in the world of monumental card game Magic: The Gathering. Made by Cryptic Studios, the mob behind City Of Heroes and Star Trek Online, it looks a whole lot more like a Diablo-y click-clicker than the MMO I had once expected. Initial whispers of Cryptic's Magic game in 2017 described it…

Star Trek Online players held a torchlight vigil for Aron Eisenberg

Deep Space Nine actor Aron Eisenberg passed away this weekend. He played Nog, the put upon nephew of Quark the bartender and the first Ferengi to join Star Fleet. In Star Trek Online, he's made captain. Nog's a wholesome character in a deeply wholesome show, which is partly why I found the in-game vigil players held for Eisenberg so touching.

Steam China will be a curated, separate store for the Chinese market

Steam is in an odd position in China. It’s like a pirate radio station, sitting offshore and letting the gamers access all that unfiltered content. With no official servers and awkward payment methods, the experience that the huge numbers of users have isn’t optimal. So Valve and local partners Perfect World are setting up a version of Steam for China, named Steam Platform. The first…

Remnant: From The Ashes out now from Darksiders devs

Forever revelling in the end of human civilisation, Darksiders III developers Gunfire Games today launched Remnant: From The Ashes. Set in a(nother) world where fantasy gubbins has smashed into our Earth with apocalyptic consequences, it's a third-person shoot-o-RPG of the sort that makes many people squint and halfheartedly suggest Dark Souls as a distant point of comparison even though they know explaining the differences will…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Remnant From The Ashes ends the world in August

Gunfire Games, the makers of Darksiders III, will return once more to the end of the world in August with Remnant: From The Ashes. I suppose surviving the collapse of THQ, as Gunfire founding members did after Vigil Games went down with THQ, could give you a bit of an doomy mindset. This time, we're not gods or avatars of universal forces as much as…

Star Trek Online doubles down on Cadet Tilly in Mirror Of Discovery

Star Trek Online is getting good mileage out of Discovery co-star Mary Wiseman. In their next big update on January 23rd - Mirror Of Discovery - players of the free-to-play MMO will be able to visit the mustache-twirlingly evil mirror universe in several new Discovery era quests. Yes, that means we get to meet Cadet Tilly's comically villainous counterpart, the feared Captain Killy. Yes, really.…

Star Trek Online expands into the Age Of Discovery and overhauls progression

I liked Star Trek: Discovery, and reckon that Mary Wiseman's performance as Sylvia Tilly stole the show so I'm rather chuffed to see that both have been beamed up into Cryptic's free-to-play Star Trek Online. Rolled out yesterday, the Age of Discovery expansion features that slightly gritty Nu-Trek look, a series of new quests to do at the behest of Cadet Tilly (voiced by Wiseman)…

Torchlight Frontiers trailer shows steampunk mechs, exploding goblins and a tiny train

Announced two weeks ago, we're finally getting our first peek at how co-op action RPG Torchlight Frontiers looks in motion. While there's still some big talk about the game being a "shared world" that new developers Echtra Games have yet to explain, the new trailer looks enough like Torchlight 2 to me, which is all I'm looking for in a sequel like this.  Take a peek…

Torchlight Frontiers taking action-RPG to ‘shared world’

Perfect World Entertainment today announced a new game in the action-RPG series Torchlight, nine months after shutting down the studio which created it. But some scraps of Runic Games have survived to make Torchlight Frontiers, as this new one is named, including Runic co-founder Max Schaefer and other unnamed former Torchlight folks at his new studio, Echtra Games. Weird. What a weird situation. Torchlight Frontiers…

Darksiders 3 devs announce co-op shooter Remnant

Gunfire games really like their post-apocalyptic hellscapes, huh? Not content with just developing Darksiders 3, they're diversifying their end-of-the-world portfolio with Remnant: From The Ashes, a third-person co-op "survival-action" shooter. Squads of up to four wander the "dynamically-generated" ruins of civilisation, shooting holes in a horde of invading tree-demons called The Root. Below, a moody and shooty announcement trailer.

Neverwinter goes gothic with a new Ravenloft expansion

Cryptic's free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons-lite MMO Neverwinter is one of those fun-looking games that I've only found the time to sink a couple hours into. As such, I'm a little jealous of the folks playing through some of the game's newer high-level modules, including a jaunt through the Underdark and a recently added jungle filled with undead dinosaurs. This week's module - the fourteenth to be added…
