6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
eGamer has posted a new preview of Runic Games' upcoming action RPG, Torchlight II. In addition to a variety of monster types to slay and items to gather the sequel will introduce cooperative multiplayer action, a new user interface, and random dungeons.
Speaking of new additions, the classes will include the Engineer, a steampunk inspired technological character sporting a heavy melee; the Outlander, a light magic wielder and overall ranged wanderer; the Beserker, a fast striking warrior using animal-themed powers to overwhelm and batter enemies; and finally, the Embermage, a highly powerful elemental mage. The other addition is much larger and better randomly generated areas which promise more variety; so from deserts to forests, Torchlight 2 is going far beyond traversing a dingy mine. What we’re not too sure about right now is the exact details of the multiplayer component of Torchlight 2; though, and like everything else, Runic Games is keeping it hush. What we do know is its co-op based and will include, thank god, LAN support. And while there’s no confirmation of what the player limit is, Runic Games seems to think round about 4 players is best per game.The Windows version of Torchlight II will be released first, with a Mac version to follow. Head over to the site below to read more.
