There's still no release date for the hotly anticipated Torchlight II, but we must be getting close, as the developers have created this tasty little infographic
detailing the sequel's across-the-board content increases.
A blog post
by Runic Games' President explains that "Torchlight II is close to 4x the scale of Torchlight 1 as far as assets go, and probably close to that as far as playtime", and that the launch price, at US$20, is the same.
Ideally, the multiplayer that everyone has asked for will further increase the longevity of the game (we certainly hope so!) These are all new assets as well ( some monsters and weapons return from Torchlight, but they have all been recreated, or in the case of some individual weapons and shields, updated and repainted )
The release window for Torchlight II is still US Summer, so the clock is ticking until the end of August. The game can be pre-ordered on Steam
for US$19.99, and at the time of writing, the original Torchlight
can be had for 40% off at US$8.99, with 11 hours left on the sale price. However, note that pre-ordered Torchlight II, currently rewards you with a copy of Torchlight for free anyway.
