Pre-Purchase Torchlight II on Steam, Get Torchlight Free

via: MyDigitalLife Pre-Purchase Torchlight II on Steam, Get Torchlight Free

If you've played Diablo II (and the expansion) and tried Sacred 1 and Sacred 2, you may have also tried Torchlight whilst Diablo III took shape.

For those who haven't played Torchlight, it is set in a mining town called Torchlight and your duties are to quest through the levels of mines and dungeons, slaying monsters and beasts whilst finding treasures, better equipment and weapons to dual-wield your way through more difficult quests and save the world.

Torchlight II is set not just in the town of Torchlight but has more areas to explore and also more characters classes to choose from. The one element that lacked in the original Torchlight's enjoyable RPG system was a co-op version and now, Runic games have incorporated multiplayer into Torchlight II.

Torchlight II was unveiled by Runic Games at PAX earlier this month and is due for release in July 2012.

You can pre-purchase Torchlight II for $19.99 (around R150) through Steam or Perfect World Entertainment and you will get the original Torchlight game (currently selling for $14.95) for free. If you already own the original game, you can send the free copy to a friend on Steam.

I am keen on purchasing Torchlight II as I've played the original and I'm sure I will enjoy the sequel in co-op mode.

Are any of the RPG fans going to wait another month for Diablo III or try out Torchlight II?
