The following is a Torchlight 2 video preview which was shown at Gamescom 2010. It primarily focuses on the one big difference between Torchlight and Torchlight 2 — multiplayer action.
While the addition of multiplayer is the big news here, we can plainly see that the graphics engine looks much improved, with the game play looking eerily similar to that of Diablo 3. Also, the inclusion of outside environments is a nice touch as well.
No glimpses of the UI though… bah!
Although Torchlight 2 is not likely to steal any of Diablo 3’s thunder, it should prove to be a fun diversion which will keep Diablo fans busy for a few months until Diablo 3 ships in late 2011.
Torchlight 2 is expected to release sometime during Spring, 2011.
