Max Shaefer Says It's an MMO
Echtra Studios founder Max Shaefer has taken to the airwaves to talk more about the studio and Torchlight Frontiers. Most interestingly, Shaefer plainly states that Torchlight Frontiers is an MMO, though with similar ARPG gameplay that players have come to know and love throughout the first two games.
"We are taking the next step with Torchlight and making an MMO." Shaefer said. "An Action RPG MMO and it's called Torchlight Frontiers."
Join Max Schaefer (Runic Games and Blizzard North co-founder, CEO/founder of Echtra Games) for a look inside the Echtra Games studio and a preview of our first title, Torchlight Frontiers!
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. Additional details about Torchlight Frontiers will be revealed at a later date.
Torchlight Frontiers will be available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4.
