Torchlight: Infinite's Final Closed Beta Starts This Weekend, Introduces More Build Customization And New Gameplay
One last playtest before its official October release.
Torchlight: Infinite, the loot-based ARPG continuing the Torchlight story by X.D Entertainment, will open its third and last official closed beta test on September 4. The playtest starts at 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time and plans to run until September 18. Interested fans can download the PC version through the official game website or Google Play and TapTap for Android. Unfortunately, there are still no playtesting plans for iOS devices.
In the final beta, X.D will debut three story levels, unique bosses, Netherrealm 2.0, Erosion craftings, and plenty more. These new tweaks and content additions have helped revamp many aspects of Torchlight: Infinite and introduce new challenges. For example, the three story levels will have new geographical features, monster populations, and gigantic boss battles to spice things up. Add on the "no cooldown" feature that cranks up the pace of skill-to-skill combat, and Torchlight: Infinite seemingly looks like a fun ride on mobile and PC.
Six classes will have 24 talent trees and over 240 skills. By choosing particular abilities, players can mix and match different hero classes to build a character in their own way. This experimental class system lets heroes like the Mage Gemma use the “Whirlwind” ability from the Warrior class. However, this is only possible through optimizing class talent customization, which is modifiable up to five times via support skills. The nature of all these systems follows the theme of "infinite possibilities" that the game plans to deliver on release.
Speaking of the release, the official day Torchlight: Infinite goes fully live is still undecided but projected to land in October. But as mentioned, those wanting to try out the game during the upcoming beta test can download the game now on available platforms ahead of September 4.
