ARPG Torchlight 2 Comes To Xbox One, PlayStation 4, And Switch This September
So far, Perfect World Entertainment has yet to announce a definite launch date for their upcoming dungeon crawler Torchlight Frontiers. The studio, however, has just announced a console release date for the game’s predecessor – Torchlight 2.
“Today, Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of live service games, and developer Panic Button announced Torchlight II will launch on the Nintendo Switch system, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One beginning September 3. Originally developed by Runic Games, the sequel to the award-winning Torchlight game received critical acclaim when it was released on PC in 2012. Thanks to the team at Panic Button, Torchlight fans can relive the glory of this classic dungeon crawler, while a new generation of console players now get to experience this unique world of hack’n’slash gaming.”
The console version of the “classic” ARPG will feature the same gameplay as the original game with an improved targeting system and a new UI designed specifically for the console, along with new console-exclusive content. “Players will also discover updated achievements and trophies to earn through gameplay, plus brand-new pets making their debut exclusively on console,” said PWE. “In addition, Nintendo Switch users will have the opportunity to play Torchlight II with their friends via wireless play, allowing up to four players to connect multiple Nintendo Switch consoles together via a local wireless connection.”
Torchligh 2 for consoles will be available digitally worldwide and will set you back $19.99. Check out the official announcement trailer below. Emberhammer!
