Although developed by the now defunts Runic Games, the action-RPG from some of the key members behind Blizzard's Diablo series is headed to consoles thanks to a new port by the talented team over at Panic Button.
Torchlight II is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on September 3.
“We’ve discovered that the core mechanics featured in Torchlight II translate really well onto consoles,” says Andy Boggs, Technical Director at Panic Button. “It’s a solid multiplayer experience with fast-paced action and an almost endless progression system. Our team has been working hard on the console version to make sure that the combat feels just as fun and satisfying as it did on PC.”
We reviewed the game back when it first came out in 2012, noting, "Torchlight II succeeds in being a truly viable alternative to Diablo III. The action is faster and thicker and rewards are set to a quickened treadmill pace, resulting in an experience that is immediately rewarding and increasingly addictive."
As per the announcement the console version will feature enhanced controls and new UI alongside some new pets.
