In real life, pets are great friends and loving companions who stick with us through thick and thin. However, when that concept is taken into the realm of dungeon crawling, they become powerful beasts who can help attack heinous foes. Or, if you so prefer, their loyal feet can make timely trips back to town in order to sell your junk. Regardless of which service is being completed at a certain time, the pets of Torchlight are always a valuable resource. For that reason, Runic Games has expanded upon their included list of pets in Torchlight II, adding such allies as cuddly panthers and soaring birds of prey.
Torchlight II still doesn’t have a release date, but we’ll let you know when we find out about one.
