A few days ago, Runic Games announced that they would be revealing the release date of the much anticipated dungeon crawler Torchlight II at PAX Prime.
Now that we're squarely in PAX Prime Day 1, Runic Games has kept its promise… sort of. Runic Games first made the announcement to its fans via its official forums last night.
Travis Baldree, Runic President, broke the news with the following post:
"The official Release Date for Torchlight II is Thursday, September 20th, 2012.
"3 weeks away!
"We'll announce it 'more' officially and bigger tomorrow.
"You know first!"
Months prior, Runic Games expected to launch Torchlight's sequel in June, just a month after Diablo III's intended release date. However, when June rolled past into July, it became apparent that Runic Game's wasn't going to be releasing Torchlight II any time soon. Baldree then revealed that Torchlight II was delayed for tweaks, balances, and some polishing.
Now that Torchlight II is within tangible reach, hopefully, Torchlight fans have used time delay in release as time to revisit the series.
but there are some things that i need to know before i will get it.
confirmation that the game isnt like the first one, as in the new game+ doesnt involve scrapping your current character, and enemies get harder through higher level settings like almost every other character building dungeon crawler.
the relative length of the game
how much verity is there, first game i started just seeing the same crap over and over again, and that really killed the loot aspect of the game for me to some extent.
hell if you can just confirm the new game + aspect of the game, i would preorder right now.
this will give you some idea about how 2 compares v 1.
and its twenty bones, DRM free. anyways, im in.
as far as game size goes its about what i expect, however what i hated the most about tourchlight was the end game, and that i couldnt go through the game a second time with harder enemies with my equipment, that bugged me the most.
you able to talk about that or is that a nda deal?
