Runic Games and Klei Entertainment have unleashed the opening cinematic trailer for Torchlight II. Called "New Heroes Will Arise", the trailer bridges the gap between the ending events of the original Torchlight and the upcoming Torchlight II. Enjoy!

This particular cinematic opens the game, filling in the story between the end of Torchlight and the beginning of your hero's quest in Torchlight II. Art Director Jason Beck created all the storyboards, and Klei Entertainment animated the scenes with sound effects. JD Wiker wrote the script, and Matt Uelmen assisted with sound effects and provided the score. Here's Jason Beck with some insight into the process.

Sadly, the result is not that great...

Kinda bland.  I don't see it doing much to raise interest.

I liked it, but obviously it's kind of a fail if the overall reaction is poor.  It didn't really have the desired effect.

The art style reminds me of the narrative story you see in 3d movies and games where the event is pictured in 2d cartoon as a contrast.  I guess it didn't go over well, but I like that kind of stuff.

This game, like Wildstar, has kind of a cartoony look to it.  I actually enjoy that art style as something different from the attempts at realism we see in most games.

I guess we'll have to see what their other trailers will have to offer when they are released.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

It wasn't *horrible*, but I had a feeling someone was trying to channel Samurai Jack and missed the mark in terms of animation. Just throws you into the middle of everything without very good explanation of it all. Action is great, but there tends to need some foundation.

On the flip side most games I have been looking forward to over the last few years have had kick ass trailers/cinematics but have been terible games, so waiting to see if Torchlight II is on to something here. I mean I liked the look the look of Torchlight but that game was all about the gameplay.

Apparently the muted colors were a deliberate artistic decision, much to my disappointment. They were going for a contrast between the look of the cutscenes and the look of the game itself, which I feel was definitely the wrong way to go. Muting the colors in your cutscenes doesn't make them any more grim or somber, it just makes them look amateurish, expecially when paired with the style of animation they decided on.

A swing and a miss, Runic.

Fail. I was really looking forward to this game. They would have done better to have taken videos of actual gameplay. It looks as if they are going for "story". Looks like I will be staying with D3.

When taken in the light of Torchlight 1 it's an improvement. This is the opening cinematic of the game and not a CGI teaser trailer. I've seen much worse from some really great games. I think it's actually a good sign that they aren't wasting development time and resources on flashy CGI trailers to make fans drool over something that would never be in the game.

*Cough* SW:TOR *Cough*

It's also a good sign that in the game itself they are spending more time on the game play than flashy cut-scenes. One thing I liked about Torchlight 1 was the way the story flowed and never took you out of the action to tell it. The story itself may have not been the greatest but the delivery was. I'm glad to see that a little success hasn't gone to their heads.

As with everything else about the game it's Diablo-lite.  I loved the 3D cinematics of Diablo 2 and missed them when Blizzard went cheap for WC3 and WOW.

 

I don't even remember the end boss of TL, which I assume is the character in the cinematic.  There really wasn't much story to it anyway.

 

I'll try TL2 when it's like $10 or so.

They generally hire out for cinematics, you just need one person from Runic to story board it first.

... if you judge a game solely based off an opening cinimatic... sorry to say but I'd rather not have your type remotely close to anything I play.
