Titan Quest players are in for a treat with the latest DLC named Eternal Embers. This classic Action Role-Playing Game (ARPG) has been around since 2006, but the developers continue to surprise its fans with a whole new expansion pack.
So what’s new in this latest Titan Quest DLC? This article will summarize all the important things you need to know.
Play an Original Quest Line
Eternal Embers is chock-full of content. You get a whole new storyline that spans four Acts, along with 15 side missions. As an added twist, the campaign can only be played on Legendary difficulty. A perfect challenge for veterans of ARPGs.
Your character—known as the Hero—has been called by Emperor Yao to head back East. A demonic presence has been terrorizing the lands after you killed the Telkine there. And in true ARPG fashion, you will have to kill thousands of monsters to reach that ancient evil.
Learn A New Mastery
Eternal Embers introduces players to the game’s 11th Mastery, the Neidan. Based on a mystical alchemist, this playstyle gives you an arsenal of abilities and concoctions to defeat large groups of enemies. The addition of one more Mastery to the nine already in the base game, plus one more from the Ragnarok DLC, gives you another reason to return to Titan Quest.
Over 30 New Enemies and Bosses
Test your weapons and skills against new foes based on exotic creatures and deities of Far Eastern legends.
More Weapons and Gear
Of course, DLC for a looter game like Titan Quest is not complete without new loot. Eternal Embers adds dozens of new Oriental-themed weapons and armor that can aid you in your quest. You can also find new charms and relics that will improve your gear.
New Gameplay Mechanics
This expansion pack adds 7 new potion types that boost different stats during combat. They share a different cooldown with scrolls and mana/health potions to keep things interesting. Use them to turn the tide of battle in your favor. It’s about time that this old-school game modifies its gameplay to keep things fresh.
Kudos to the people at Iron Lore Entertainment for continuing to optimize their 15-year-old game for modern systems. With Eternal Embers, you’ll experience better performance and rendering, as well as faster loading near dungeons. Tired of playing play Titan Quest on mouse and keyboard? The good news is that the game now fully supports gamepad controls.
