Torchlight Infinite Commander – Ultimate Guide

Downloads

Torchlight Infinite has finally arrived, and we’re currently in the process of covering every aspect of itin a series of guides, with a focus on the characters themselves. This Torchlight Infinite commander guide focuses on your favourite dwarven hero, Moto, who’s a bit of a tinkerer. This is the defacto minion class in new Torchlight, and will appeal in particular to those that loved the Engineer in Torchlight 2.

This latest entry in the action RPG series brings Torchlight to mobile for the first time ever, and in a free-to-play format. It features five playable characters, most of which are entirely new to the series, alongside all of the monster slaying you dreamed of. If you love watching monsters burst into colourful gore, collecting showers of loot, XP, and gold in the process, you’ll love this.
