Torchlight III

Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games have prepared a major spring update for Torchlight III. The hack and slash dungeon crawler is at version 1.9.106169 on Switch, bringing along the Cursed Captain mid-range class, quality-of-life updates, four new species of pets, an added contract and more.

Here’s some additional information plus a trailer:

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.

Today’s new update for Torchlight III also brings other exciting new content and quality-of-life updates to the hack’n’slash ARPG. This includes updates to the pet system, a new “Fur and Fashion” contract, UI improvements, additional pet slots and four new species of companions with over 40 new variants (Stag, Shiba Inu, Bulldog and Fox). Adventurers will also discover new fort items, such as the Fox Arch, Wyrm Skull, and Netherim Specimen, which can be used in a potential new laboratory.

Torchlight III is currently half off on Switch from its original $39.99 asking price. The sale should be running for a week.
