Torchlight II Summary
Chris Capel's got a big wrench, a bulldog called Tiny McTitch, and loves hunting ratlins by Torchlight.
Travis Baldree and Eric Schaefer, two of the founders of Runic Games, have posted on the, stating that they will be stepping down from the company in the next few weeks.
Despite Torchlight selling well on Xbox Live Arcade, Runic has stated that the developer still has "no plans" for a console port version of the popular sequel Torchlight II.
Action-RPG Torchlight 2 is now mod friendly as the latest update includes full Steam Workshop support, with developer Runic releasing their Guts editor which lets players "modify almost everything" in the game.
That includes fiddling with item and skill balances, level designs, animations, quests, "and much more," teased Runic. There's a conversion tool for old mods in this new era for Torchlight 2.
Torchlight II is debuting in Asia with a new localization, and to celebrate, developer Runic Games is releasing new pets for the game. One of the pets will be, appropriately, a panda.
A number of Torchlight II gamers have been expressing their frustration on the official Runic Games forums as their copies are suddenly unable to play because of DRM reactivation demands.
The common link is Windows 8, says Runic founder Travis Baldree. An update to the OS appears to be causing Torchlight II to detect "significant changes" to the system that require reactivation.
