It's been over a hundred years since the events of Torchlight II, where the great heroes of Torchlight defeated The Dark Alchemist and sealed the Netherlord’s heart inside the Clockwork Core. 

The heroes brought peace to the world of Novastraia, but now the Netherim have returned and the Ember Empire finds itself on the brink of collapse once more. 

To save Novastraia, players have to gather their wits and brave the frontier as they search for fame, glory and new adventures to become the legends the world needs them to be.  

Torchlight III features its signature gameplay mechanics, including hack’n’slash combat, a vibrant world, both online 4-player cooperative multiplayer and offline single-player, plus the popular pet system. 

Torchlight III also freshens things up with new features, such as three epic acts, unique Relic subclasses, customizable forts and a challenging end-game experience in "Fazeer Shah’s Dun-Djinn." 

The game also includes a multi-tiered "Contracts" progression system that lets players earn Fame and unlock elite items.
