Despite being relatively unknown in the grand scheme of things, the Torchlight series has continually proven itself to be a fantastic action-RPG franchise. With the likes of Diablo, Marvel Heroes, and Path of Exile taking the spotlight, however, Torchlight has remained in the shadows.
With Torchlight Frontiers, developer Echtra hopes to change that - not only by modernizing the Torchlight games, but the action-RPG genre as a whole. Not just with a shared multiplayer world, but a new form of progression and a set-based equipment system.
In the video above, Mike Mahardy and Erick Tay discuss their time with Frontiers, and whether its progression system will be approachable to newcomers. They also share their opinion on Frontiers' shared-world systems, and whether they will modernize the series.
