One Week Until PAX!

PAX Prime is now just two days away! On August 31st, Friday morning at 9am PDT, Max and Travis will be live on Twitch.TV to talk about the official release date. We are debuting our shiny new trailer, featuring new gameplay from all four classes. We love it. It's awesome.

We'll also be holding a Q&A session, and you can add your questions to our forum thread, here. We will answer as many of them as we can during our time slot.

Not going to be at PAX Prime? No problem, the stream will be live on the homepage and recorded so you can watch it again throughout the weekend. (Hint: look for the zombie).

If you are going to be at PAX, stop by and play Act II! We'll also be on Twitter talking about the release date and all the other details. We're excited about PAX and sharing all the news with you. We hope to see you there, in costume!

Here's your PAX Guide to Torchlight II:

  • Come see us at booth 1220 in the 4th floor Expo Hall, next to WB/Turbine! Here is a handy map!
  • We have 8 stations. 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.
  • We're on two panels this year about the FUTURE! Max is on a panel sponsored by MMORPG, and we have our own panel about the Future of PC Gaming featuring Max, Travis, Patrick Wyatt from ArenaNet, and Steve Goldstein from Stubbs, Alderton, and Marks. Grab your crystal ball and meet us there! Here are the details for both:
  • We expect to see some awesome entries in the first ever Torchlight cosplay contest. The winner gets an armor set named after them! Put the finishing touches on those ember backpacks!

And yes, we will be announcing the official launch date of Torchlight II on Friday morning. Look for it here, on Facebook, and on Twitter. We'll see you then!
