I'm playing the Torchlight II Beta! I'm really excited for this game release, probably the only one coming out in summer that I'm very excited for. I will be keeping this thread updated for the remainder of the beta [24th of May], switch it around to the main thread around release time, and hopefully those who are also waiting for the game release can add any of their input, discuss it here, or anything else that comes to mind. So without further ado, here's a quick outline of the new Torchlight II character classes, features, screenshots, etc! Character Classes: The mysterious Outlander: a gunslinger with some secret weapons! The academy-trained Embermage: the Empire's front-line spellcaster! The savage Berserker: a two-fisted barbarian from the frozen north! The resourceful Engineer: the ironclad powerhouse of the Imperial frontier! Features: Multiplayer Play co-op with your friends via LAN or over the Internet for free. No subscriptions, no item sales. Our new matchmaking service lets you find friends, start new games, and join existing games. And, as always, you can play single-player offline as well. Customizable Characters Players will create and customize a character from one of four brand new classes. Each class can be played as either male or female, with customized cosmetic features and looks to make each individual character stand out. All new skills and loot give loads of opportunity for unique character builds. Moddability TorchED, the Torchlight II editor, will give players the ability to create their own mods, adding even more content to the world. Have your friends download the same mod and play together. New User Interface Torchlight II boasts a new and improved user interface, designed to be easier than ever for new players to pick up and play. This intuitive interface ensures you can focus on playing the game the way you want to. Open World We're not only in the town of Torchlight anymore! Explore vast overland areas and multiple hub towns, fight through rain, snow, day and night. Our level randomization ensures new layouts, paths, loot, and monsters every time you play. New Game Plus In New Game Plus, the game's not over until you say it is. Once you've beaten Torchlight II's primary campaign, you can start again with the same character for a significantly greater challenge. You'll keep all of the skills, gold, and gear you worked so hard for! Pets & Fishing These popular features make their return in Torchlight II in improved form. More choices, better effects, and your pet will still make the run to town to sell your loot so you don’t have to. Screenshots: Torchlight is an action role-playing-game for the PC made by the creators of Diablo, Fate, and the never-released Mythos among other games. Set in the mining town of Torchlight, players will adventure to uncover the mysteries of the Ember mines. It offers a fully featured character leveling system, randomized dungeons, hordes of monsters, and gobs of great loot.
