Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games have revealed a new class for Torchlight 3 - the Sharpshooter. As implied by the name, the Sharpshooter is a ranged class focused on taking out enemies at a distance.
Torchlight III was originally announced as Torchlight Frontiers, a shared-world title with real-world money purchases, before changing course and rebranding as a premium standard RPG in January.

Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games are excited to unveil the Sharpshooter, the latest hero class for Torchlight III, the newly announced successor to the critically acclaimed Torchlight series. This new class combines careful precision skills with ranged weapons and magical trinkets to strike down enemies from afar. The Sharpshooter is cunning and willing to bend the rules in order to survive the hordes of creatures running rampant in each of the game’s diverse biomes. This new hero class is currently featured in the Closed Alpha for Torchlight III on Steam and will be available to players worldwide when the game officially launches on PC later this year.
Armed with a signature bow, the Sharpshooter can fire off a barrage of shots to destroy enemies from a distance. While exploring the different biomes featured in Torchlight III, players can level up powerful skills that help the Sharpshooter deploy a series of dirty tricks and regenerate precious ammo (additional details available on the game’s official blog). The Sharpshooter joins previously announced hero classes including the magical Dusk Mage, mechanized Forged and locomotive-conducting Railmaster.
