From Press Release:
XD Games, Shanghai — December 20, 2022 | Hoist those sails, dungeon crawlers; Torchlight: Infinite’s new season is ready to drop anchor! Launching in January 2023, “Blacksail” will see players embark on a new adventure that takes them to the end of the universe and into The Sea of Void.
Torchlight: Infinite’s new season will introduce more content to the popular PC and mobile action RPG while expanding hero gameplay and customisation with new skills. Not only that, Hero Relics will allow players to further progress and develop their in-game builds with new loot and loadout slots.
The Shattered Blacksail Story
All worlds end in ashes, forever lost in The Sea of Void. Here, countless Aemberons devour one another in an eternal cycle as wandering souls attempt to rejoin the world of the living. Emerging from endless darkness, the Lord of the Void Sea enslaves these souls as they pull Blacksail towards worlds that are yet to be broken.
Void Sea Endgame Content
In Torchlight: Infinite’s new season, Hunters can earn loot drops with special “Void Sea Night Flame” affixes when they kill monsters in the Netherrealm map. Upon defeating the final stage boss, an interactive device will appear on the map known as the “Void Sea Seal”. You can break this Seal using any Void Sea Night Flame to unlock a random Seal Whisper based on the affix of the Night Flame used. After breaking 6 Seals, Hunters can then go to the Void Sea End Port to challenge the Bride of Void Sea and steal her treasure. She may also drop a Void Sea Invitation – you will need these to challenge the season’s final boss, Lord of Void Sea, who will drop several unique Legendary Items.
New Gear Slot and Skills
As we enter the new season, Hunters will gain access to two new hero items: Hero Relics and Hero Memories. Each Hunter can equip one Hero Relic, offering up to 3 slots which can be inlaid with collectable Hero Memories, providing powerful affixes that are closely related to the hero’s specialization. Helping to create more diverse build possibilities, Torchlight: Infinite will also introduce 5 new main Skills with the launch of the new season:
- Moon Strike
- Howling Gale
- Thunder Slash
- Blazing Bullet
- Haunting Abomination

PC Controller Support
There will soon be even more ways to play Torchlight: Infinite. PC controller support is being included as part of the new update, in response to community feedback. This will be particularly good news for those who have been itching to play on their new Steam Decks.
And finally, a letter from across the Void Sea…
Thanks to the joint efforts of Torchlight’s heroes, the Dark Surge has faded. The Void Sea approaches, and generous gifts await those who took part in Torchlight: Infinite’s first season.. From mid-January, Hunters who own the “Black Ship Beacon” will receive the “Blacksail Token” which includes exclusive body effects, season supplies and other rewards. A Discord welcoming event is also now live, with 50 Jagged Primocryst up for grabs. To participate, join the Torchlight: Infinite Discord Server.
