Titan Quest takes up Immortal Throne

THQ details the first expansion pack to its mythological action RPG; add-on contains new character classes, monsters, weapons, and more.

Classic mythology is nothing if not immortal, so it wasn't terribly surprising earlier this month when THQ mentioned in a conference call with investors that it would be expanding its PC action role-playing game Titan Quest.

The publisher today gave the first details on the expansion pack, dubbing it Titan Quest: Immortal Throne. The expansion adds eight new character classes to the game, dozens of new monsters, hundreds of new weapons, and 10 extra character levels. It also includes a new environment in the underworld of Hades, and offers "more than 12 hours of single-player content per difficulty level."

Titan Quest: Immortal Throne is slated for an early 2007 worldwide release. The original Titan Quest was rated T for Teen. For more on the original, check out GameSpot's review.

Spearfish_4Ever they will add only one new class, but with the choice of taking another one u got around 8 new combinations... class i just the title on you're character screen, not a completely new page of skills

Everyone needs remember that Titan Quest has its own identity, just because it is a Over the head RPG that has skeletons, does not mean that it is a Diablo-clone. I find it irrelevant and ignorant that we are throwing around Diablo and Titan Quest as if they are one in the same. Call of Duty is never seen as a Halo clone or vice versa, even though they both are FPS Shooter dealing with two opposing factions. Just get it straight.

A expansion for a Fantastic Game. I can't wait to see what the new classes are. Yeah, I know it like Diablo 2, and sort of a Diablo 3 that never was. I have spent hours upon hours with this game. And will spend more hours with an expansion.

Titan Quest is a Diablo copy. And I liked very much Diablo 2. So I'm eagerly waiting for this. By the way, Blizzard, when it's Diablo 3 coming?

This sounds awesome. I can't wait! Titan Quest is one of the only games that I bought right off launch! This game was a blast but I may be slightly biased as I am a Classics Major

The game s outdated, the zoom feature is pretty useless as you cannot TILT the camera and it got old quickly. The graphics were beautiful though but if you could actually tilt the camera to see whats coming at you then the game would be very enjoyable by 100%. There probably wasn't skies or skyboxes.

Titan Quest is pretty lame. Just a remake of the old Diablo games

TQ was quite fun. If you like Diablo/D2, it's a gimme.

Good, maybe it'll make the game a little more interesting. I like it, but it was a like a drawn out Diablo that involved more grinding :(
