From Press Release:
Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games are excited to unveil a brand new hero class for Torchlight Frontiers, the upcoming shared world ARPG set in the beloved Torchlight universe. Introducing the Railmaster – a locomotive savvy powerhouse who steams into combat with a massive hammer and heavily armed battle train. Watch the official class reveal trailer for the Railmaster to see this hard-hitting hero in action!
he Railmaster will be available to those participating in Closed Alpha for Torchlight Frontiers on April 23 and later to players worldwide when the game officially launches on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4. Torchlight fans can sign up for a chance to be invited to the ongoing closed alpha by visiting PlayTorchlight.com.
The debut of the newest hero class in Torchlight Frontiers marks the very first time that players will be able to assume the role of a Railmaster in a Torchlight game (Fans may remember meeting Captain Jacobi in Torchlight II, when the Imperial Railmaster provided passage between adventuring areas). Now players can experience the power of the Railmaster for themselves, as they learn to swing a colossal hammer and strategically lay track for the artillery train that follows them through the Frontiers. Those who wield the power of the Railmaster can also customize each of the train’s platforms with different features to maximize firepower against oncoming enemies.

Torchlight Frontiers combines the heart of the beloved Torchlight series with a shared, persistent and dynamically generated world. In true Torchlight style, players will team up with friends and devoted pets to hack and slash their way through a vibrant world, discover ancient ruins of lost civilizations and brave dungeons filled with riches and dangerous creatures.
