Torchlight II Release Date Announcement Next Week

The Torchlight II Website has one of those announcements of an upcoming announcement, saying they will unveil a release date for the action/RPG sequel on Friday at PAX Prime. They say the announcement will come in the morning, and that they will be giving show attendees the chance to play the game, and will also be participating in a panel on the future of PC gaming and holding a Torchlight II cosplay contest. Thanks Mr. Tact.

Much like Torchlight I, Torchlight II will thrive with the addition of HOTSPOT: (use internet searching if link does not work)

HOTSPOT is a mod aggregator/HQ that gave the TL1 player easy access to any and all user created mods. Often it was just a one-click operation to get that fancy mod installed and working. With conflict detection and auto-updating, HOTSPOT (now in version 2 specifically for TL2) negates most complaints about TL's somewhat vanilla and sparse content.

Oblivion out-of-the-box compared to Oblivion with 200+ mods installed with the OBMM (Oblivion Mod Manager) is barely able to be considered the same game. Torchlight is similar in that aspect, the ability to specifically tailor the game to your preferences makes for a much better experience.

However, the addition of STEAMDRM with TL2 might lessen the enthusiasm of the modders and buyers, but the spectacular failure of D3 might turn many to TL2 who might not have even considered it.

All this in an attempt to recapture the magic of D2...
