Torchlight II
Posted on September 6, 2012


The countdown is on! Torchlight II launches September 20! We were spreading the good news at PAX Prime last weekend, and had a blast as always. Here are some highlights:

Did you miss the official announcement Friday morning on Here it is!

We are proud to announce (and congratulate!) the winner of the first Torchlight II cosplay contest, @missmonicaellen! These two absolutely dazzled us with their creativity and attention to detail, right down to the pet ferret. Amazing! We're in touch to have them name their custom armor set. Congratulations!

Jerich once again conducted the Runic Games Exhaustive Review on behalf of Runic Games Fansite. You'll want to check out the interview, and coverage of the Torchlight II skill tree.

A big thank you to Wasabi Prime, aka Denise Sakaki, for the photos of our booth!

An exclusive interview with composer Matt Uelmen features mixes of the Torchlight II soundtrack.

We're counting down the days to the 20th, or in the case of the Reddit community, we're charging up for launch.

Thank you for all your enthusiasm and support! We can't wait to bring you the game!

Torchlight II will launch as a digital download from Runic Games, Steam, Perfect World, GamersGate, GameFly, and GameStop on September 20th, 2012.

Runic Games' CEO, Max Schaefer comments, "We worked incredibly hard to make sure we could release Torchlight II before Summer's official end. Development will continue right up until we ship, and we couldn't be happier to be putting the finishing touches on a great game. We want to get it to the fans as quickly as possible. Honestly, we can't wait."
