Torchlight: Infinite Launches Major ‘Blacksail’ Update With New Season + Hero.
Today marks the launch of an exciting new update for free-to-play action RPG, Torchlight: Infinite. Titled “Blacksail,” the new season invites players on PC and mobile to brave The Sea of Void with a plethora of pirate content, features, and in-game events to discover.
Take on Torchlight’s new endgame boss, The Lord of the Void Sea, in a swashbuckling saga players won’t want to miss. There are plenty of rewards up for grabs with large amounts of loot to loot and boost your roster of hunters. With the launch of Blacksail, Torchlight: Infinite also welcomes a new playable hero – Cateye Erika – which can be unlocked through this season’s new battle pass. Equipped with dual blades, she is a fast, damage-dealing fighter, perfect for players who prefer an offensive style of play.
New ways to play
Existing heroes are also given time in the spotlight as the game grows with each new season. In Blacksail, fan favorites Rehan and Moto receive unlockable hero traits, creating new ways to use these characters and further optimizing builds. XD has made two gameplay videos showcasing these hero features, including Rehan’s Seething Silhouette and Moto’s Charge Calling.
Player customization is also enhanced with the addition of a new gear slot where players can equip Hero Relics, a new class of gear powered by lootable Hero Memories. Also expect 12 new Pactspirits, offering a wider selection of unique buffs to power up your heroes.
Controller support for Torchlight: Infinite is also included in this latest update, along with tweaks to balance the game’s mechanics in terms of talents, legendary gear, and random gear additions. The team has also been working on optimizations and quality of life improvements.
To celebrate the launch of the latest season, players can earn login rewards between January 13 and January 19, including Revival Tokens, Hunter Supply Chests, Oblivion Points, Fantasy Crystals, and more. Not only that, from January 13 to January 27, players can participate in the Prayer’s Light event, completing Spring Festival quests to earn Celebration Lanterns. These can be exchanged for rewards such as Revival Tokens, Oblivion Points and Insight Crystals, with missions being refreshed every day.
In addition to a new battle pass packed with reward levels, there will be a Boon event – Sweetheart Shooting Star – where players can unlock Erika’s Legendary Hero Apparel: Sweetheart Maid, which will unlock the following cosmetics:
