New Torchlight Infinite class locked behind a £12.99 season pass
A game to crush Diablo Immortal, that was the premise of action RPG Torchlight Infinite. Not only was this proven wrong when fans discovered some pay-to-win features, but it remains so with the introduction of the new Torchlight Infinite class Thea.
New Torchlight Infinite class is scummy
Revealed in a new Youtube video, the Oracle Thea is the newest class for Torchlight. Thea, an all-new Mage class, looks like she could be a great new addition to the game. Unfortunately, the new Torchlight Infinite class highlights the game’s problems.
At the time of writing, Thea is one of six playable characters in Torchlight Infinite. However, access to the character is locked behind a paid battle pass. If you want access to the new hero, you’ll need to pay £12.99 for the privilege.
In addition, Thea’s introduction to the game appears to be timed. This means that you may miss the period in which you can get the character. If you do, just hope she comes back in a new battle pass.
Here is the official description of the character:
“Thea is very good at using the power of blessing in battle. Because she is familiar with the six gods, Thea can constantly get the Focus Blessing, Agility Blessing, and Tenacity Blessing.”

As bad as Diablo Immortal?
One of the main reasons fans were excited about this new Torchlight game was because Diablo Immortal was such a disappointment. While XD Entertainment claimed they wouldn’t make their game pay-to-win, that just doesn’t seem to be the case.
The fact that the first new Torchlight Infinite class is locked behind a battle pass proves this. Many players don’t get a chance to play as Thea or future characters in the game.
At the moment it seems that Thea is not that strong in the Torchlight Infinite level list. However, this sets a worrying precedent for future, stronger characters. Do you want to get the best characters? Pay better.
