Posted Thu, Apr 26, 2012 by Martuk

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.


RUNIC GAMES LAUNCHES PREORDERS FOR TORCHLIGHT II


Now available for pre-order through Steam and Perfect World Entertainment 

April 26, 2012 – Seattle, WA - Runic Games, Inc. ("Runic Games"), a specialized developer of PC and console game software in the United States, launched pre-orders today for their upcoming PC APRG title Torchlight II.

The highly-anticipated sequel is available for pre-order through two platforms, Steam, and Perfect World Entertainment, and retails for just $19.99 (£14.99, €18.99). Players who pre-order through Steam will receive an added bonus, a free download code for the original game, the award-winning Torchlight.

“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,” said CEO Max Schaefer. “Fans have asked us for a pre-order, and we are planning an imminent network test, so the timing was perfect.”
