While Torchlight Infinite is being made to be mobile-friendly It will also launch on PC. In an interview via email with GameSpot D2R ladder items, the producer Liu Heng said Torchlight Infinite will allow for cross-progression.
Players will be able to link their accounts under one account and switch between mobile and PC without losing progress. In the PC versions, players will come with a few more upgrades beyond the mobile version including new camera options, greater perspectives, and more control options.
The biggest concern for any free-to-play experience particularly one that is loot-based is how the game is being monetized. On this front, Heng explained that purchases in Torchlight Infinite are broken down into two different categories. Features like more bag space, talent resets, and auto-looting functionality will be what Heng described as “pay-for-convenience.” New heroes, along with different cosmetics will be sold for purchase and are part of what Heng declared to be “pay-for-content.”
Torchlight Infinite will not sell items or crafting supplies to anyone for real money, Heng said. These objects will “strictly grind-to-get” to guarantee fairness for everyone. Heng made it clear to players that Torchlight Infinite won’t have any stamina meters , or systems which limit progress of players, and said players will be given the “freedom to commence and end their grinds as they please.”
It’s not an easy way to go. Diablo Immortal, which Torchlight Infinite may be the game to be compared to, was condemned at the time of launch due to its pay-to-win system, even as it reportedly made the equivalent of $50 million in the first month of Diablo 2 Resurrected buy items. In the past players have expressed concern about the way in which Diablo Immortal’s MMO structure penalizes individuals who are inability to find the extra players required to complete the raids or dungeons required for progression.
