Runic Games has confirmed that Torchlight II will launch at the same price tag of the first game. It will hit $19.99 when it is available to downloadable online services later this year. Given the reception toward the original game, it only makes sense to continue its success.
“It’s always been our goal to provide exceptional value for the price,” said CEO Max Schaefer in the announcement.
“Everyone who wants to play Torchlight II will be able to comfortably afford to do so, and they’ll be able to play with their friend online or via a LAN, or play single player offline, all with no further purchases.”
Runic also revealed the fourth and final playable class, the Embermage. The lore page for the Embermage explains her powers, which include the usual elemental spells along with manipulation of time and space. To get better understanding in the game, this means teleporting to a nicer position for her dual blades. She joins the Outlander, Berserker, and Engineer.
The unveiling didn’t make known of a release date, however, so it’s still set for the nebulous time-frame of this year. At the current time, the game will be exclusive to PC platform, as Runic has said porting it on the Microsoft’s Xbox 360 would require redesign to fit the memory limit.
