Here is an overview of the game, via Perfect World Entertainment:
Set in the same beloved Torchlight universe from Torchlight I and II, this shared-world action RPG brings back many of the franchise’s signature features and mechanics that captured the hearts of action RPG fans around the world. Led by former Runic Games and Blizzard North co-founder, Max Schaefer, the team developing Torchlight Frontiers is comprised of veteran developers who were responsible for the games that defined the ARPG genre, including the original Diablo and Torchlight franchises.
Torchlight Frontiers combines the heart of the beloved Torchlight series with a shared, persistent and dynamically generated world. In true Torchlight style, players will team up with friends and devoted pets to hack and slack their way through a vibrant world, discover ancient ruins of lost civilizations and brave dungeons filled with riches and dangerous creatures.
An early demo of Torchlight Frontiers will be playable at Gamescom 2018 from August 21 to 25 and PAX West 2018 from August 31 to September 3.
