The original Torchlight was a bit of a sleeper hit for Runic Games and the developer is hoping to repeat that success with Torchlight II. Torchlight II pre-orders are now available on Steam with the added bonus of a free game code for the original Torchlight for users that opt to purchase the game early.
Torchlight II pre-orders are priced at $19.99 and is expected to release later this year.
