Torchlight III is one of a number of top-down dungeon crawling hack 'n slash titles on Switch, and certainly counts as a high profile member of that particular club. It's aiming for players old and new with its latest free update, which is out now on Switch and adds some neat-looking content.
The big addition is the 'Cursed Captain' character class; it's described as mid-level and has some neat moves:
Walking the plank between life and death, the Cursed Captain is the undisputed commander of the high seas. This corporeal new class can summon a crew of undead swashbucklers during combat or blast enemies with twin sabers, powder kegs and other classic pirate weapons. Plus, those who take control of the Cursed Captain can collect doubloons from combat to power his skills. The Cursed Captain has two unique skill trees: Cursed and Piracy. Along with these unique skills, the class also introduces a new class-specific armor type to Torchlight III: capes.
The update also adds a new contract along with quality of life improvements, while there are four new pet types (with 40 variations); let's just say they've gone for some rather popular breeds.
Torchlight III is also currently 50% off on the eShop, if you're tempted to jump in.
Let us know in the comments if you'll be trying out this update content.
Still a dreary and completely unnecessary addition to the series and genre. Play Torchlight II and pretend this doesn't exist.
nah, Torchlight 3 is good on its own. It provides slower style much like the first TL, which I really appreciate because TL2 was a bit too fast IMO.
Of course, it has its problems, just like TL2 has a set of its own. But it doesn't mean one cannot enjoy these games.
I love this game, same with the second. Both are fantastic games, my favorite dungeon crawlers to be honest. I know Diablo is the definitive dungeon crawler but I prefer Torchlight, something about it's more cartoonish graphics and lighthearted style just appeals to me more.
Plus these games just feel perfect on the Switch, love having them as a handheld title. Seeing them add more content is great, I should probably get back into it again.
Maxed 3 characters in TL3 so far and... the endgame didn't do it for me. It's ok I think. If it's on a 50% sale you can't do much wrong.
But I still prefer TL2. Faster loading times (which are a pain in TL3) and the better multiplayer mode (e.g. exchanging weapons with each other possible - not so in TL3).
Also: The strict separation between Single- and Multiplayer-Chars are a big no-go/bummer for me (they can't even share storage!!!).
So don't expect a satisfying multiplayer experience in TL3. TL2 is the better game overall but you can (and most probably will) have fun in singleplayer with TL3.
