The largest update so far has just arrived for Torchlight III, bringing a bit of holiday cheer to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC gamers delving into this dungeon crawler action-RPG. It’s the free Winter-themed Snow & Steam update, which includes the likes of exclusive pets, legendary gear, and more.
Courtesy of the Torchlight III Snow & Steam update, a new, limited-time “Snow & Steam Contract” has been added, giving you the opportunity to spend the holidays with two new furry companions – the Frost Owl and the Ugly Sweater Cat. Through making progress for this contract, you can also earn additional content, such as snow-based fort decorations as well as an assortment of consumable and currency-based rewards. Be aware, the contract will only be available during the holiday season, but the items unlocked during this period will be permanently retained. On top of that, there are two other new pets available – an adorable Reindeer and the Jolly Ferret – and a special, super cute festive variant of the beloved Retriever pet.
While hacking and slashing through the frontier, you could acquire five brand-new legendary weapons, four of which are a part of the Arctic Armaments weapon set – The North Mace, Glacier’s Edge, Frostwall and My Lil’ General. There’s also one unique weapon outside of that set, known as the Toymaker’s Tool. Furthermore, keep an eye out for the Winterweave armor set that has the Lucky Adventurer skill, granting +20% item luck and 10% movement speed for 30 seconds upon slaying an Elite enemy. The new Winterweave items are permanent additions to Torchlight III, but can only be found by level 47+ characters. Two new rare helms, Frostform Head, which transforms a player’s head into a snowman, and Elfin Cap have been added as well.
And last, but not least, Snow & Steam introduces various quality-of-life improvements for everyone to enjoy. The Forged class has received major combat upgrades and a new HUD to ensure it’s a more viable class. Fazeer’s Dun’djinn has also received adjustments in relation to more affixes and rewards, and there have been changes to the Fort system, like the brand-new ‘Style Station’. The new station brings in transmog and dye features that allow you to customise the look and colour of your gear.
You can embrace the festivities today, just download the latest free update for Torchlight III and enjoy a spot of holiday cheer!
