Torchlight Frontiers trailer shows steampunk mechs, exploding goblins and a tiny train

Announced two weeks ago, we're finally getting our first peek at how co-op action RPG Torchlight Frontiers looks in motion. While there's still some big talk about the game being a "shared world" that new developers Echtra Games have yet to explain, the new trailer looks enough like Torchlight 2 to me, which is all I'm looking for in a sequel like this.  Take a peek…

Torchlight Frontiers taking action-RPG to ‘shared world’

Perfect World Entertainment today announced a new game in the action-RPG series Torchlight, nine months after shutting down the studio which created it. But some scraps of Runic Games have survived to make Torchlight Frontiers, as this new one is named, including Runic co-founder Max Schaefer and other unnamed former Torchlight folks at his new studio, Echtra Games. Weird. What a weird situation. Torchlight Frontiers…

Runic To The Hills: Founders Depart Torchlight Developer

Huh. Well, this is kinda unexpected. Runic, the band of former Diablo devs that produced Torchlight and the especially excellent Torchlight II, have just lost two key members. Founders Travis Baldree and Erich Schaefer are departing the little ARPG studio that could because, er, it apparently grew too large for their tastes. 20 people under one roof? You're practically Ubisoft at that point. For real, though,…

Have A Slice: Torchlight II Carves Out A Free Weekend

Have you recently suspected that you're living an Inferior Life? You might not be wrong. Thousands of people are diagnosed with Inferior Life Syndrome every day, and to hear forums, gaming sites, and Internet comment threads - all of which are made up 100 percent of doctors - tell it, it's probably because those people aren't playing the right games. There's plenty of science to…

Wowzers: Torchlight II Sells A Bazillionty Units

Holy cow, everyone. People bought a videogame! Look at all these HOT NUMBERS, sensitive bits conjuring curiosity from behind the slimmest of dollar signs. Yes, I know this sort of news isn't typically very exciting, but I think Torchlight II warrants an exception to that oh-so-sacred of RPS rules. Runic's finished taking count on the fingers and toes of all its employees and their many…

Go Wild: Torchlight II Gets Mod Tools, Workshop Support

Torchlight II's actually already seen some rather brilliant mods, which is impressive given that modders have only been able to paddle themselves through its stat-laden sea of systems with their wits. For its part, however, Runic promised official mod support ages ago, and now - after maybe a little more time than most people were expecting - it's finally delivered. So then, what do burgeoning…

Insane Torchlight II Mod Adds New Class, Monsters, Raids

When you played through Torchlight II, did it feel like something was - I don't know - missing? Wait, for real? Because there was a whole, whole lot of stuff in Runic's brilliant sophomore slasher (read that phrase again; videogame lingo is weird sometimes, you guys), so I was mostly joking for the purposes of introducing this sentence: Torchlight II was a glorious loot pinata explosion…

Stoking The Embers: Torchlight II Demo

I am a monocled engineer with a pet bulldog called Mr Kibbles. Eyebrows aside, the only hair on my head is an attractive piece of lip furniture that I call The Handlebars of +4 Roughhousing. Torchlight II really does seem like a pleasant way to click away the hours, as John excitedly reported yesterday. If you're not convinced that this is the ARPG for you,…

So Runic, What’s Next After Torchlight II?

It's been a long road to the release of Torchlight II. Not Diablo III long, mind you, but it technically started with the original Torchlight, which didn't even release until 2009. And all the while, there's been Torchlight ports and constant demand for a Torchlight MMO - among other things. I wouldn't be surprised if talk of Torchlight-branded torches, lights, and lighters crept into the…

Lights, Camera, ARPG: Torchlight II Out Sept 20th

Torchlight II will be out on 20th September of this very year and that's pretty much all there is to say. Does anyone remember when it seemed like there'd be a collision between Diablo III and the indie charmer? For a moment back before summer failed to begin, I imagined a pileup of ARPGs, all rushing down the internet pipes, erupting in an +4 burning…

What Delay? Torchlight II Still Aiming For Summer

If the Internet serves as a representative sample (and I don't see why it shouldn't), the first thought on the minds of most humans - the goal that sustains our insatiable will to live - isn't love, sex, eating, fighting, curiosity, or figuring out how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. It's Torchlight II's release date. When word…

Runic Explains Why Torchlight II’s Taking A While

If you're anything like me, then not only are you uniquely handsome, but you're also wondering what the bloody hell is taking action RPG Torchlight II so long. Come ON Torchlight 2! My mouse has just recovered from Diablo III, and I need SOMETHING TO CLICKCLICKCLICK on. Oh, they've said. As Eurogamer spotted, Runic bossman Travis Baldree has posted on their forums saying why there's…
