Torchlight III Customizable Forts Detailed

Perfect World Entertainment have detailed the customizable Fort that players have in Torchlight III.

The blog post explains that players can earn (“unlocked early in Act I of Torchlight III. But first, you’ll have to claim your Fort from a local Goblin tribe”) and customize their own fortress.

Players can craft objects and place them freely, facing any direction, and players can even “stack them inside of each other.” 

While most of the cosmetics can be unlocked through quest rewards, “most” will be awarded from progressing through the Contract tiers (missions that offer rewards across all characters on a player’s account). “There’s even a special Contract designed to provide you with the most Fort cosmetic bang for your buck. “

Any player can also find your fort, and vice versa. Some may even allow you to enhance your characters, grow a Luck Tree (feed it items to increase item-finding luck across all your characters), or enchant gear- if the owning player has left out such facilities. Players can also show off their loot and collected items, use their own fortress to store items, or visit with party members.

Finally, Forts are per-account. So, all characters a player owns can build up the same fortress, gathering resources, recipies, upgrades, and allowing stations to be used by any of them.

You can find screenshots of the Forts (via the official website) below.

Build & Upgrade Your Fort
It’s time to rebuild – and that includes you! Enjoy your very own fort, where you can upgrade gear, and renovate your fort to show off to your friends and the world. Build monuments of power, pet stables, and more!

Collect Epic Gear
Whether it’s armor, weapons, dyes, recipes, ember cores, or even new pets…there’s always more to find as you battle through dungeons and take on dangerous foes.
