Single player should have pause functionality#335

Real life interruptions being what they are, single player mode should have the capacity to pause to allow one to attend to whatever the RL circumstance may be. While one might portal back to one’s fort or a town to “pseudo-pause,” it should be possible to actually pause single player gameplay when in a mapworks or combat for those unexpected issues that may arise.

I agree. The offline character might be like that. And I would like to test offline mode in the beta.

My wife and I bought the game (seperate accounts) so we could play it single player without interacting with eachother. i play the game different than her. but BOTH of us REALLY want pause functionality in single player. its the only mode we will play and we kinda look at this feature as one of the reasons we prefer single player and we were so happy when yall announced a single player mode. we wernt going to be able to play this game without it.

Pause whilst online too for that matter, Diablo 3 anyone? It can be done.

I agree, the game should pause when hitting esc or at least have a pause button.

Merged Allow single-player to pause game#3357

Seconding this request. It’s mind-boggling to me that a developer these days would release a game with a core single-player component that doesn’t allow you to pause gameplay at your leisure. This makes playing Torchlight 3 obnoxiously inconvenient to play for me compared to basically any other single-player game.

This should also be available in multiplayer IF you’re playing alone. It’s extremely annoying not having a pause.

Please let me get addicted to this game and let me pause in single player. I play the game at work as an emergency dispatcher and there are long lulls between calls sometimes and I want to pause the game.

This is the main reason why I don’t play
