Runic Games has announced that Torchlight 2 is currently in development and a new website for the sequel to the award-winning Torchlight has already launched. Torchlight 2 will feature cooperative play, a feature missing in the original game.
The most exciting new feature of Torchlight II is the multiplayer element. Play with your friends, and use the free peer-to-peer matchmaking service to meet new players of a similar level and interest. Together players will discover expansive randomized outdoor areas and deep ominous caverns; random instanced and persistent dungeons, a huge variety of all new monsters and villains, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete. Players journey through the perilous Overworld, enjoying all new weather features, time of day events, and a rich and cunning story to drive gameplay.
Torchlight 2 is scheduled to be released in Spring 2011. Check out the Torchlight 2 site for more features.
