Update 7 for Torchlight Frontiers is called “Beast Buddies,” and with good reason. With this update, players will be able to collect pets, swap between them, and collect and assign skills to their furry (or feathery, or scaly) animal companion of choice.
Your journey to PETA activist begins with finding trapped pets on the frontier and rescuing them to join your fur brigade. Pets are randomly generated, so it might take some searching to find the exact species and, more importantly, color you want. When joining you in combat, pets will have four skills to choose from, in the categories of auras (passive abilities), buffs (triggered buff abilities), and combat.
Update 7: Beast Buddies arrives in the Torchlight Frontiers beta on July 16. Learn more about pets and the rest of Update 7 on the game’s website.
