A date for a release date announcement? Yes, that is what we have come to with Torchlight II. Fans of the original game in the action-RPG series have been waiting patiently for developer Runic Games to release the sequel.
Today, in a post on the game's official website, Runic Games said that the release date announcement for Torchlight II will be made one week from today, on Friday morning, August 31st.
If you happen to be going to Seattle to attend next weeken's PAX Prime event, Runic Games will be out in force with eight PC stations running the near final version of Torchlight II. The website says, "We are prepared for a line, and want to give you the heads up that if that happens, we'll have devs on hand keeping play time to about 10-15 minutes, so everyone gets a session." The company will also sponsor a Torchlight cosplay contest at PAX Prime.
The original game came out in the fall of 2009. However, Runic recently released an infographic that shows that Torchlight II will have a lot more content compared to the original, not to mention online multiplayer that will add a lot more replay value to the game.
