Has anyone else managed to play Torchlight 2 Beta yet? Surprised that no-one has commented on this so far! I had an email from Runic Games with a key and game download link.

It's testing the Internet component this weekend (or multiplayer part) but you can play it like a single player by setting up a game and then passwording it if you choose to.
First impressions were pretty good - it's fast, fluid and still has that Torchlight vibe. It has the same graphic style as the previous game so whether that's good or bad depends on how you saw the original. Pets are brilliant especially the bulldog.

Keeping my pre-order and looking forward to playing the full game.

I hadn't realized this was going on so I didn't get to sign up until today.

I hope I get a key before Tuesday when the "Beta Weekend" ends.

you probably will, they're sending beta keys out like crazy right now so they can do stress tests on their servers

i had just signed up on friday and got my key yesterday morning so chances are good for you

Played it, hit level 21. Now i'm just going into public games and farming better gear.

The fact the game has no DRM, and is vastly more customizable than Diablo 3 is a large selling point, to me that is. I enjoyed it.

I didn't try for the beta since I'm playing through the original again (and loving it).Torchlight II is the first game I've ever preordered. :)

Got an invite on Friday. Played with a buddy yesterday and enjoyed it a lot. I'm level 17 now. I'll be preordering it. :)

Wish the Mac client was coming out at same time as PC. That made my decision to go with Diablo 3 for now. But I really liked Torchlight and will visit T2 eventually.

How are you guys finding the MP portion? Is it drop in/out? PvP?

Honestly, the combat in Torchlight 2 feels quicker and more exciting than that of Diablo 3.

So anyone who has played this and Diablo care to share their opinions?
