Perfect World Entertainment have released new information and a new trailer for their upcoming action-RPG, Torchlight III.
The trailer shows off the latest class to be announced for the game, the Sharpshooter. The Sharpshooter is a ranged-focused class, utilizing guns, bows, and other trinkets to keep hordes of enemies at bay. The new class is available in the latest build of the closed alpha, and will be in the full game upon release.
You can find the rundown of the class (via Perfect World Entertainment) below.
Nimble, cunning, and willing to bend the rules, the Sharpshooter uses incredible skill with ranged weapons and magical trinkets to take on enemies from afar. Most of the Sharpshooter class skills are available for testing now, with a couple more coming soon.
Precision Skill Tree
Destroy enemies from afar with shots from the Sharpshooter’s signature Bow abilities.
The Sharpshooter consumes ammo when using Precision skills. Ammo regenerates passively over time, or through mechanics like the Reload skill.
Adventurer Skill Tree
Deploy an arsenal of dirty tricks powered by artifacts collected during the Sharpshooter’s past adventures
Adventurer Skill Buffs
In addition to each skill’s combat effect, Adventurer skills apply a buff stack which grants added power to the next three Precision skills used. These effects are different depending on which Adventurer skill was last used.
Class Exclusive Item
The Bow is a 2-Handed Ranged weapon usable only by Sharpshooter characters.
You can watch the Sharpshooter in action in the trailer below.
