Hot on the heels of that new Diablo 3 media, Runic Games have released the very first trailer for their little dungeon crawler, the hotly anticipated Torchlight 2.
The most exciting new feature of Torchlight II is the multiplayer element. Play with your friends, and use the free peer-to-peer matchmaking service to meet new players of a similar level and interest. Together players will discover expansive randomized outdoor areas and deep ominous caverns; random instanced and persistent dungeons, a huge variety of all new monsters and villains, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete. Players journey through the perilous Overworld, enjoying all new weather features, time of day events, and a rich and cunning story to drive gameplay.
Watch it right here on AusGamers.

Wow that looks really good. To the point where I could see myself playing it even if D3 makes it out first.

Yeah but aren't the people who made torchlight ex-blizzard? So really they are the ones who made like the original diablo and stuff? I'd side with them TBH.

The guys that founded Runic Games are the same guys that founded Condor, who amazingly (according to wiki) were 6 months away from shipping the original Diablo when Blizzard scooped them up and renamed the studio to Blizzard North. So yeah, they are the main guys originally responsible for Diablo.

The key will be to keep it cheap like last time. $20 tops.

Yep, it's the same composer that scored the original Diablo too!

this just has to come out maybe a year or 6 months before d3 and itll be a success in its own right. itll keep all the action rpg crackheads happy until d3 comes around.

You guys don't seem to have the higher res of this trailer? Its 720p on Youtube:

It's 720p if you click to download from the files library on our video page, and will be better quality than that because it's the source file from the publisher and not transcoded by youtube.

We don't have HD streaming happening on AG yet (has been on my wishlist for quite a while though).

Hmm, there were promises of multiplayer coming to torchlight. This makes it sound that it'll be a new game, not an update :/
