Torchlight 2 Beta Impressions: More Diablo Than Diablo


Torchlight 2 Torchlight 2 Beta Impressions: More Diablo Than Diablo

Following my stint in Diablo 3 I found a beta-weekend invite for Torchlight 2 in my inbox. Having thoroughly enjoyed the original, it was imperative that I play the promising sequel. I was nowhere near letdown by Runic’s effort; in fact I was thrilled by what I found. I’ve played dungeon crawlers since the original Diablo, and this game brought me back to my roots in a very traditional, yet enhanced, way.

 

Torchlight 2: Creating a hero to quell the evil

Before you can begin your loot-whoring shenanigans you must construct your hero. Torchlight has increased its class roster, giving you a choice between 4 different archetypes; including the familiar feeling Embermage, Berserker, and Outlander; and introducing the Engineer. Each class introduces a unique fighting style and skill tree. From there you are given the opportunity to customize your hero’s face and hair, followed by Torchlight’s most appreciated feature: the pet. Torchlight 2 has quadrupled its stable of pets, straying from the dog and cat route and trading it in for a menagerie. Torchlight 2’s pets include: three dogs; the Papillion, Bulldog, and a more exotic wolf. If you prefer your companions to be of the feline persuasion; also offered are the Cat and Panther. Rounding out the roster of animals are the “Wildcard” options such as; the Ferret, a Hawk, or the dragon-like Chakawary.

Torchlight 2 Impressions from PAX East 2012

Torchlight 2 Torchlight 2 Impressions from PAX East 2012

Torchlight 2 has improved upon the original in every way.

I have always been a fan of dungeon crawlers. One of my very first PC games was the original Diablo, and I have played almost every single dungeon crawler since then. After a dozen or so attempts to switch from Diablo II, I pretty much just gave up looking for a different experience. That was until Torchlight hit in 2009. Finally I felt like there was some real competition to Diablo. There were some issues with Torchlight, and because of its lack of online play, my friends and I eventually went back to Diablo 2. Runic games were at PAX East 2012, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on the much anticipated Torchlight 2.

Now I hate to keep making the comparison to Diablo, but Torchlight for me was always an alternative to Diablo, and I believe that was the case with many other gamers. Torchlight 2 is like going from the original Diablo, then switching to Diablo 2. Torchlight 2 has improved on everything from the original, and after only playing for about 30 minutes, I have fallen in love with this sequel.

Torchlight 2 Interview with CEO Max Schaefer at PAX East 2012

Torchlight 2 Torchlight 2 Interview with CEO Max Schaefer at PAX East 2012

Runic Games was at the Nvidia booth at PAX East 2012. Cory sat down with Runic’s CEO Max Schaefer to talk about Torchlight 2

What has been changed and improved from Torchlight 2?

Everything, but the biggest things is that it’s multiplayer now.  So you can play with right now up to 6 people, but we haven’t set a maximum yet, LAN or over internet, as well as single player offline. You can use your same character through all of those. We also have a much bigger world this time that’s half outdoors, and half underground and dungeons.  There are also big vast, also randomly generated outdoor areas that span a lot of different terrain types like deserts and mountains. It also has a lot more pets, I think there are eight rights now, and we don’t know if we are done yet. We are bigger better everything

One thing that’s not bigger is the price. Torchlight 2 will be twenty bucks again.
