New Edition Celebrates Titan Quest Birthday

Titan Quest is often considered one of the best non-Diablo 2 RPGs made in the last 15 years. It tells a deep story, it has a great skill and levelling system and it is plenty of fun to play. While it was never pretty in quite the same was as the Diablo’s, it still managed to show how visual design could be done and produced some fantastically engaging worlds.

The Titan Quest Anniversary Edition comes with a small novel worth of changes to the original game. The more greater changes of which include:

  • Restored and improved multiplayer functionality, including new features like a built-in voice chat and NAT resolving for best multiplayer connectivity
  • Support for more resolutions, larger camera distance and scaleable UI size
  • Improved performance and general stability
  • Support for modders through new modding options and a fully integrated Steam Workshop
  • Complete balance rework with improvements to all Masteries, damage types, unique items and sets
  • Countless bug fixes and other improvements, including ten years’ worth of community fixes
  • Increased challenges and rewards for larger parties and on higher difficulty levels
  • Dozens of new heroes and bosses to encounter
  • Improved enemy and pet AI
  • Quality of life features like higher stack limits, quick item pickup, a larger stash and a speed setting
  • Reduced cheating with curbed exploits, removal of test items and mod comparison in multiplayer
  • Steam Friend Invites
  • Steam Achievements
  • Steam Trading Cards

More screen, better AI, balance changes… This is a very thorough patch which seems to cover more than just a few bases. Did I mention, it is all for free if you already own Titan Quest, and it is 75% off now if you don’t. You can check out the full announcement on their Steam page where they talk a little more about the changes. Until then, enjoy slaughtering some mythical monstrosities!
