Runic Games' CEO, Max Schaefer comments, "We worked incredibly hard to make sure we could release Torchlight II before Summer's official end. Development will continue right up until we ship, and we couldn't be happier to be putting the finishing touches on a great game. We want to get it to the fans as quickly as possible. Honestly, we can't wait."
Torchlight II was announced in August 2010, as the sequel to Runic Games' debut Torchlight. The sequel features an expansive overworld, four new classes, and multiplayer games via LAN or Internet, providing a much larger world, a deeper gameplay experience, and hours of replayability.
Runic Games is currently exhibiting at PAX Prime, where gamers can play the fully polished Act II prior to launch. A free playable demo will be available upon release.
