Official Torchlight 2 Beta Thread

#1 Edited by MattyFTM (14328 posts) -

So the Torchlight 2 Closed Beta is in full swing, so I thought I'd create a thread for Giant Bomb users who are in the beta to find eachother to play together. I know at least 2 Giant Bomb members are in the beta, I'm sure there must be more too.

How do I get in the beta?

It's a closed beta with limited invites, but Runic seem to be ramping up the number of invites, so if you want to get in there's probably a decent chance. Sign up for a Runic account here and make sure your preferences are set to allow emails from Runic. Then, hopefully you'll receive an email with a beta key. I signed up just the other day and recieved a beta key this morning, so they don't seem to be favouring older users or anything like that.

So I'm in the beta and I want to play with some Giant Bomb duders!

If you post your Torchlight 2 username in this thread and I'll add it to the table below. You can add any of the people listed to your friends list to find them in game. Also, feel free to use the comments to discuss with people about classes, times to play and whatnot in order to find your perfect co-op buddies if you wish. Or just talk about your thoughts on the beta or whatever.

Also, be warned if you want to play with me, I'm terrible at Torchlight. I spend most of my time running around like a headless chicken trying to avoid enemy attacks. I'll probably cause you to die.

Just signed up a little while ago. Would be nice if people who pre-ordered were just in by default. Guess I'll hope for the best.

Beta downloads in high demand; please be patient with us.

We're experiencing superheavy load right now. Please be patient with us. We're working on increasing capacity as quickly as possible.

Hhhmmmm. Well on the off chance I get a key

Username: gakushya

Edit: Oh sorry was this for people who already have a beta key?

Man, sure hoping for one. I loved the first Torchlight.

#10 Posted by ztiworoh (731 posts) -

Signed up. Now the waiting begins. I'm weirdly more excited for this than Diablo 3. Maybe it's because I never got into Diablo 2.

#11 Posted by leftyhijack (49 posts) -

Just signed up. Supertonic is my name. I did enjoy the first one, except I know nothing of T2

#12 Edited by dragonboss (36 posts) -

The beta keys are being given out if you sign up at runicgames.com, and the devs say they are limited so maybe they will eventually stop giving them, but I don't know when. I just got mine and my username is dragonboss.

#13 Posted by Krakn3Dfx (2484 posts) -

Got one. My username is Krakn3dfx.

#14 Posted by c0l0nelp0c0rn1 (1798 posts) -

Will download this afternoon.

Does anyone know if your stats from the beta will transfer to the full game once you get it?

#16 Posted by whyareyoucrouchingspock (975 posts) -

I wish they would put up an official release date.

I'm sure the beta info will be wiped when the game comes out, that's usually the case.

#19 Posted by DrBreakfast (1 posts) -

Hey guys, does anyone happen to have a spare key lying around?

I have been dying to play this game for ages!

#20 Posted by spiceninja (3055 posts) -

@whyareyoucrouchingspock: The beta ends sometimes in the next week or two. They've also said that they want to release a month after Diablo 3, so an early June release is most likely.

I'm using that gunslinger type dude.

#25 Edited by OneKillWonder_ (1689 posts) -

I registered yesterday and got a beta key today, so that was pretty nice. However, the installer won't work. I keep getting an NSIS error that implies that the file is damaged or corrupt. Anyone else have this problem?

Hopefully this will get sorted out and I'll be able to play some time soon.

EDIT: Nevermind. Got it working. Username is OneKillWonder99 if anyone is interested in playing.

I got a key!! Username:Sloth

#27 Posted by WMWA (1160 posts) -

Yeah...just got my invite a couple weeks late. Now I'm fully sunk into D3. Sorry, Torchlight, I'm sure I'd like you but you didn't want to give me a chance.

Anyways, here's my beta key for whoever wants it: 02CD-A900-4772-4CB9

#28 Posted by gakushya (66 posts) -

I just received a key, but the βplay is shorter then I thought, don't bother to put me on this list.

#29 Posted by MattyFTM (14328 posts) -

Updated the list with everyone. It's annoying that as soon as they do this weekend beta thing with lots of people getting in just for the weekend, I'm at work both days. Well have fun guys, anyway.

I have been in the beta since Saturday night. I maxed out an Engineer with a Construction build in which I shoot duders and throw grenades. Tabled Diablo 3 for this game and it is totally fulfilling it's promises. I am really enjoying the art style and some of the enemy design, the heavy cartoon feel with chunky models is needed to separate itself. But loot has been going good and once I picked up a cannon, I have been melting dungeons. I am finding that the bosses have way over the comfortable amount of HP, I am spending like 10-15 minutes on those fights. Anyone else having that issue? So far, I have been playing on Veteran and the difficulty hasn't been a problem except for boss battles. It might be and element thing but I haven't been playing long enough to notice that it is an issue.

I will be on later tonight for some multiplayer action, username is Rempresent.
