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.
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.
One of the fun aspects of Torchlight was the pet system. Characters were accompanied by a cat or dog companion who would faithfully guard their side and run to and from town selling their phat lewts. Upcoming Torchlight 2 will also feature pets, but this time with even more choices. Players will be able to choose between at least 8 different pets, and Runic's latest pet video shows them off, showcasing the latest addition: the Papillon. This pet is actually based off of Runic's office mascot, Falcor! Check out the full video below.
Sometimes it's hard to find a good co-op partner. Work, school, family, friends, time zones, and work (I know I mentioned it twice) are always conspiring to hinder co-op play. What's an adventurous gamer to do? The makers of Torchlight 2 have a solution: bring a pet.
When the first Torchlight was released, the game received nearly universal praise except for one minor problem - it was missing cooperative play. Torchlight 2 is changing that, adding in full co-op support and a rebuilt campaign that should make players feel like they are part of a more epic story. We went hands on with the game in co-op with Runic Games President Travis Baldree at E3 2011 and lived to tell the tale.
This Spring is turning into a doozy of a season with tons of great quality titles. There's also a few not so great ones. Check inside the latest issue of Beyond Co-Op Reviews for the low down on games like Dragon Age 2, Tiger Woods 12, Homefront, and plenty more.
The original Torchlight's official Xbox Live release date was just announced for March 9th with a price tag of 1200 . By all accounts Runic Games spent a lot of time tweaking and balancing the game for gamepads. It seems this extra care caused the development to take longer than expected and took more resources away from the development of Torchlight 2 than Runic Games expected. Because of this the game is going to get a slight delay.
Summertime, and the livin's easy... I love the summer. That's when Xbox LIVE Arcade puts out five games in five weeks to null the void of lackadaisical game releases. Wait, this can't be right, unless the Summer of Arcade is starting February 16th. Looks like Microsoft has decided that late winter/early spring is also lacking in quality game releases. Never fear, game starved readers. Xbox LIVE's Arcade House Party is here to alleviate the winter doldrums, and everyone's invited, assuming you've got the Microsoft Points to pay at the door.
Runic Games have released the first trailer showing off gameplay footage of Torchlight 2. Not only do we get a glimpse of the new weather system and several new locations, we get our first peak at the co-op action. In fact, the entire trailer is focused on co-op play and how it was the number one asked for feature of the original. You see that - developers do listen to our feedback.
Runic Games have launched a teaser website for Torchlight 2, the sequel to last years popular single player Action/RPG. We reviewed the game and loved every bit of it, but were sad to see co-op missing. At last our prayers will be answered this spring when Torchlight 2 launches with full co-op support.
We've all been so busy actually PLAYING the myriad of releases this Fall, including some awesome co-op ones, that we didn't have time to write about all the other games out there. We've combined our Beyond Co-Op reviews for October and November into a mega issue.
