Description

After the events of the first game, Alchemist, one of the three main classes, is corrupted by the Emberblight from the heart of Ordrak, the main source of corruption beneath the town of Torchlight. Now he is on a rampage for taking the power of guardians and breaking the balance of elements. New heroes arrive to rise up against his madness with the help of the destroyer and the vanquisher, other two playable characters from the first game.

Many elements from the original hack-and-slash RPG Torchlight (fishing, pets, etc) make a return in the sequel, including the randomly generated dungeons. There are more classes, pets and weapon types and the locations to visit are more varied. There are now snowy areas, deserts, forests etc. Instead of the dungeon descending structure of the original game, the sequel has large above-ground environments with hub towns and each one has a couple of separate dungeons that consist of one floor or multiple ones. Unlike the first game multiplayer is now supported through cooperative sessions for up to six players, both locally and online. There are three acts and an epilogue.

Other new elements are time of day cycles, an updated interface design, and various weather effects. The character appearance can be fully customized based on various attributes.

Screenshots

Torchlight II Windows You can attack some bosses from a place where they can't reach you. It's kind of a cheating, but extremely useful at certain occasions when you're playing on elite.
Torchlight II Windows You can warp to hub town, waypoint portal and main areas in each act.
Torchlight II Windows You have to choose between two options when you die. Respawn in town and lose nothing or respawn at the entrance of the area you were and lose a percentage of your gold.
Torchlight II Windows You can transfer your loot to your pet's inventory and send him to town to sell them for you. In that case, he won't be available for a minute or two.
