Diablo III may be right around the corner, but it’s not the only good-looking dungeon crawler set to release in the near future. Torchlight II will “ideally” launch soon after Blizzard‘s behemoth, but it’s still not known when that will be. Still, those who would like to put their money down on Runic Games‘ upcoming sequel can do so now. It’s now available for pre-order through Steam and Perfect World Entertainment, with a price tag of twenty dollars. Groups can purchase 4 ‘copies’ for sixty dollars, as part of a returning promotion.
To be completely honest with you folks, I’m more excited about Torchlight II than Diablo III. Granted, both games look good and are certainly on my radar.
