Torchlight III Gets New Relic Subsclass Update Out Today

Game developers Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games just announced the release of the Relic Subclass update for video game Torchlight III.

Torchlight III Relic

The highly-anticipated Relic Subclass update is now available for the game in Steam Early access. This is the final major Early Access update prior to its upcoming official launch later this year on PC and consoles.

The new update will add new content for character building by introducing completely new and improved Relics system. It includes the vast Relic skill tree with the five powerful Relics and each of them with reworked Relic Activation skills. Aside from that, there will be additional skill slots, which now adds up to nine total skill slots.

Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games and co-founder of the Torchlight series stated:

When we first launched Torchlight III into Steam Early Access, we received great constructive feedback pertaining to skills, more specifically Relic system skills. To make the most accessible and exciting Torchlight adventure yet for all ARPG fans, we’ve been working closely with the community to learn exactly how they’d like their adventure to be expanded on. The Relic Subclass update is a prime example of just that — as it delivers incredible base gameplay improvements that make hacking and slashing goblins even more fun than ever before.

About the game:

Torchlight III is the latest successor to the ARPG cult classics, Torchlight I & II, originally developed by Runic Games. This fast-paced dungeon crawler brings fans back to the beloved Torchlight universe to hack and slash their way through a brand new world filled with hordes of goblins, undead and other dangerous Netherim creatures. Adventurers can party up with friends or venture into the vast wilderness alone, where they will find loot, explore dungeons, collect epic gear and build their very own fort to show off to the world. Torchlight III features four unique hero classes (Dusk Mage, Forged, Railmaster and Sharpshooter), plus a myriad of new and familiar combat pets to help players fight their way to fame and glory.
