Some more good news to come out of PAX Prime 2011 in Seattle over the weekend is word from Runic Games on the price point of Torchlight II. The sequel to the 2009 action RPG adds the much-requested cooperative multiplayer functionality and will launch at the same budget price as it's predecessor - US$19.99.

Based on the pricing of the original Torchlight (which is still priced evenly on Steam across all regions), it's reasonably safe to presume that there won't be any disparity between US and Australian pricing.
“It’s always been our goal to provide exceptional value for the price,” says Max Schaefer, CEO of Runic Games. “Everyone who wants to play Torchlight II will be able to comfortably afford to do so, and they’ll be able to play with their friend online or via a LAN, or play single player offline, all with no further purchases.”
Also revealed for PAX is the fourth and final player class, the Embermage
The mysterious Embermage joins the previously announced Engineer, Outlander, and Berserker classes. This marks the culmination of a month long buildup introducing each class to players.
Torchlight 2 is in development at Runic Games by an independant team that includes several original Diablo/Diablo II developers from Blizzard North. Runic still don't have a specific release date for us, only that it is still due "for PC in 2011".

Can't be good news if they still don't have a specific date in mind yet. So much for being out before Diablo 3 ;(

Reso, they said it'll be done when it's done, but at the moment it was looking likely that it would be out way before Diablo 3.

So just because they don't have a release date that's public, doesn't mean it's not coming out anytime soon o.0

They didn't even mention that it'll have mod support.

A lot of people have been making a big deal out of multiplayer in Torchlight 2 -- and rightfully so -- but not so much talk has been about modding. The first game had a substantial mod community, thanks in part to Runic Games offering mod tools for free to all players. And during my demo of the game at PAX, a Runic rep confirmed that the company will once again freely distribute mod tools to the public.

Heh, I already knew it would support mods. What I meant was that if they were having a dig at Blizzard they should've mentioned the mod support as well.

The modding tools actually sound pretty awesome.

Torchlight was a fantastic game, and rightfully so not a spin-off Diablo, but something of it's own, like Titan Quest. Can't wait for the next installment!

Part of me is looking forward to this even more than D3. It really does need to come out first though.
