Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games are sharing a first look at the new Forts system in Torchlight III. When Torchlight III releases on PC later this year, players will have the opportunity to build and customize their very own fortress on the frontier. Forts allow each adventurer to leave their personal mark on the world, as these structures can be personalized and adorned with treasures that have been crafted or earned through combat. Forts also serve as an important hub where players can meet up with friends, progress their characters, plus swap out skills and entire armor sets.

  • I'm keeping an eye on this. I played about a dozen complete games of Torchlight 1 but I didn't like Torchlight 2 very much. Kings Bounty 3 is another one to watch our for this year.
  • I actually prefer the Torchlight games to Diablo these days, sometimes I want something a little more simple than the constant grind of Diablo 3.
