Torchlight 2 Pre-Orders Available, Details. Still No Release Date
Torchlight 2 is now available for pre-order from Steam and Perfect World Entertainment. The game costs $19.99, but you can grab a 4-pack off Steam for only $59.99 — and I’m sure you can find three other people willing to pitch in $15 to split the difference.
Players who pre-order through Steam will receive an added bonus: a free Steam copy of the original game, Torchlight.
CEO Max Schaefer said:
“As we put the finishing touches on Torchlight II, it made sense to start pre-orders after the great response we received at PAX East. Fans have asked us for a pre-order, and we are planning an imminent network test, so the timing was perfect.”
President and Project Lead Travis Baldree said:
“We’re pretty excited to see Torchlight II approaching completion, and can’t wait to get it into players’ hands to see what they think. It’s been a long haul, and taken more time than we expected, but we hope you’ll agree that the additional time has been worth it. Thanks for sticking with us!”
Unfortunately, we still don’t know when Torchlight 2 will release, beyond “Summer 2012.” According to Schaefer, it may be one month after Diablo 3 launches – which would mean June 15th.
