Torchlight Latest News
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.
NeoGAF users have spotted what appears to be four new bundles based on Xbox Live Arcade. The logos were found in the Marketplace on Xbox.com. No prices or release dates are known, but the games should cost less than the individual XBLA titles will.
Runic Games' action-RPG Torchlight is entirely free of charge via GOG.com as part of their 2013 #NoDRM Summer Sale, where over 500 titles with no DRM are "at least 50% off" for over two weeks.
All that DRM talk surrounding E3 was depressing, says GOG.com, so they're giving away Torchlight. There are going to be plenty of daily deals so best to check-in regularly.
The next instalment in the Torchlight series is unlikely to be so direct a sequel as Torchlight 2 has been to the original. In fact, Runic want to take the action RPG mold and break it "a little bit."
The studio won't be leaving the ARPG arena as it's their "sole marketable skill" among the team. The early success of Diablo 1 "sort of stuck" with the veterans, but now they want a "twist on it".
Runic president Travis Baldree stated a few days ago that Torchlight II would be coming out by the end of Summer. Torchlight fans have been anxiously awaiting the game, and to placate and excite them, Baldree posted an infograph showing how much content has been put into the game. As it seems, the game has four times the content of the original.
