4 player minimum for co-op is kind of lame IMO. Why 4 players? I have a good friend with whom I constantly play online games with, we know each other extremely well and work well together as a team (we use to PvP in D2 as a team and clear out duel servers with just us 2), we plan on getting Portal 2 for its co-op, and seeing as Torchlight is 4-player minimum co-op, I doubt we will pick it up now....good job Torchlight devs, you screwed up the co-op and the game hasn't even released yet. >.<

There shouldn't be any reason to require a minimum number of players unless it is player vs player (like FPS games), in an RPG style game, it should be anywhere from 1 to whatever your max player size is.

Where did you get that info? They are for example playing 3 characters in the teaser trailer.

Co-op is a minimum of four players, and a possible maximum of eight. Summons are a major factor in these numbers. Not finalized. (28:52)


It DOES say "Not finalized" so it could change, but if they keep it 4 minimum, you can count on my friend and I ignoring it.

Yeah, but its just badly worded. They are considering the max number of players. I.e. you could either be 2-4 or 2-8. They are considering how much it will affect performance etc.

It says in the comments that it is confirmed on the official forums even though it's not linked

@cccenturion I noticed you are on the Runic forums and this has already been answered for you, but it has not been answered here. But what they mean by "Co-op is a minimum of four players", is the minimum maximum will be four players you will still be able to play two, three, four... They just have not decided on the maximum amount of players allowed in a game.


Searched and found a topic on their offical forums;

Some videos from GamesCom in Germany. Probably played with lowest difficulty (player didn't seem to take much damage)

Gamestar.de, German (cam very high quality)

The best quality cam video with Torchlight II gameplay is on Gametrailers. It's a info/demo-video that shows gameplay ungrouped with 4 player in the game. Playing the Railman class in a starter area.

It's not about a deep story, it's about smashing an endless horde of monsters in different ways and getting loot. Well that's what I play the genre for anyway.

Indeed. At times the game can seem too easy (even with the difficulty settings turned up) but it only takes one moment of arrogance to get yourself into deep trouble. Since my innate arrogance tends to usurp my mental discipline on a fairly regular basis then it keeps the game interesting.

i like when these kinds of games are mindless hack n slash instead of trying to make them hard in some way to appease a certain subset of players. when i play diablo or a game like torchlight(haven't played the first one yet) i just want to relax and grind hordes of mobs.

i also like how they let you cheat online in this one. i like being able to not worry about picking up loot alll the time and just stay focused on clearing each part of the map. may seem silly, but keeping scrolls of identfy in my small inventory and spaces for drops and taking time to compare stats on gear in diablo 2 really kills my buzz. i just want to set the lan game to 8 players, and duo with my bro on my barb while he plays his necro and spam hp pots endlessly while holding down my right mouse button in the direction of monsters.

then again actively looting stuff has become a real drag to me any game with item drops. i don't want to stop the action to pick up junk. just auto put it in my bag and let me sort through it when i go back to town. also don't make my bag so small that i have to go back to town super often either. let me spend most of my playtime actually playing the fun parts of the game.

Torchlight 2 priced at $20, final class revealed[

Torchlight 2, the cooperation-friendly sequel to the million-selling dungeon crawler, has been officially priced at $20 by Runic Games. That's the same price as the original Torchlight. which had a far lower profile.

"Everyone who wants to play Torchlight 2 will be able to comfortably afford to do so, and they'll be able to play with their friend online or via a LAN, or play single player offline, all with no further purchase," said Max Schaefer, CEO of Runic Games.

Runic also revealed the fourth and final class in the game, the Embermage, who will join the Berserker, Outlander and Engineer on an obsessive quest for better loot. We're sure they'll save the world along the way or whatever, but it's the loot that's important.

Torchlight 2 is still targeting a 2011 launch.
