Runic Games recently announced on its Twitter feed that the addictive Diablo 3-esque "click everything until it's gone" Torchlight 2 has sold over two million copies since its release last September. Victory dance commence!
Fans of Torchlght II may remember that word or an official editor has been passed around. In a great twist of humor, Runic Games decided to release the finished editor on April 1'st...except it wasn't a joke. The new editor is named GUTS, and it will allow players to create, tweak, customize, and explore new possibilities in the world of Torchlight II.
I swear, whoever is in charge of setting up sales at Steam keeps an eye on our chatter here, because the past several PC co-op nights we've announced were accompanied by a Steam sale for the same game. Perhaps it's just coincidence, since Steam is always having sales, but I like to think we have some influence on the industry.
Torchlight 2 has been anticipated for quite some time, especially after many had sour feelings with Diablo 3. We've compiled a handy FAQ as a compendium to our database entries to help understand the game's cooperative multiplayer. This is everything you need to know about Torchlight 2's cooperative experience spelled out in plain English.
September 20th, 2012. Torchlight 2 finally has a release date thanks to a big announcement by developer Runic Games at PAX. They definitely didn't want you to forget it as it was plastered all over their booth on the show floor. With the game's release imminent, we sat down and played through a near final build of Act 2 in the game.
Torchlight 2 has been an illusive tease for quite some time now. We've been positively aching for this game while Runic has been polishing it until it shines. It seems as if our prayers have finally been answered, however: the official word is that Torchlight 2 will release September 20th, a paltry three weeks from now!
Some things just need a little more time to cook before they’re well done, much like how Torchlight 2 is coming along. Runic Games has decided to officially delay the game’s release to properly balance and polish the final product.
It is always a privilege to talk to Runic Games, and this time at E3 2012 we were able to sit down and play through Torchlight 2 with them. We checked out the four classes, the pets, and of course the loot and I must say that it is shaping up to be an amazingly fluid action rpg experience.
This Week in Co-Op, Tally and Nick take you on an epic journey into the Torchlight 2 beta and their live streaming of the event from last week.
Torchlight 2 is now up on Steam available for Pre-Order, simply listed with a "Summer" release. The game is listed at $19.99, but there's a few ways you can get more value for your money. First, simply pre-ordering the game will net you a copy of the original Torchlight. Seconds, you can snag a four pack of the game for $60, which is basically giving you a free copy of Torchlight 2!
We have a new cinematic story trailer for Torchlight 2 today. It features a lady hero, a dude hero, and a lot of the color brown, which is odd. Both Torchlight games are very colorful, and you would think developer Runic Games wouldn't hide that fact. Even though the video has a dull muted color it's full of action. If is looks a little Shank-esque, that's because the folks over at Klei Entertainment lent a hand. Check it out and give us your two cents.
