co-op!

Posted by Flaboere

"We listened" - what a piece of bullshit. "We planned ahead" more like it.

Posted by jasondaplock

The forested areas are definitely welcome. Even with a friend, I don't know how much more of Torchlight's procedural spelunking I can take.

Posted by BulletproofMonk

So, this game is now Diablo?

Posted by tychoon

I'm stoked!!!

Posted by RGHamburger

Looks like co-op alright, and the new areas are nice. But beyond that, not a very impressive trailer.

Yay! I can't wait! :D

I like how the Torchlight logo looks like it's from 1998.  That's awesome.
 
Also, is it 2 or 3 player co-op?  I couldn't place it in the video.

Obviously. Anything with warriors with that type of isometric view is instantly Diablo. I mean, all football games are FIFA, right?

Another co-op, nice.
Posted by DBones

Torchlight II can be really good, I just hope that it's 
A)  Cheap like the first one 
B)  Released on Macs... also like the first one.

Posted by LosDub

hope its still in the low price range as the 1st one was(tho bought for $5 on a steam sale) may hold my dungeon crawler itch till D3 atleast lol
Posted by mythrol

The art style is so awesome in that game. it looks like WoW meets Windwaker. 
 
As someone who pre-ordered and loved the heck out of the original Torchlight:
 
Day. One. Purchase.

Yes, Torchlight is amazing, this should be even more amazing.

The first Torchlight was fun and addicting as hell, will be nice to share the experience with another player.

Posted by tinylanda

Edging closer and closer to that rumored MMO.. woo 
 
Great way to test it in an online environment :)

I think I speak for everyone when I say, Yeeeeeeeeeees!

Love Torchlight but I do find it amusing how they are following the progression of the Diablo series, I know some of the guys worked on Diablo 1.  Torchlight 2 basically has the same advances over the original as did Diablo 2.  I suppose the question is, will Torchlight 3 beat Diablo 3 to the punch. 

Posted by Cogzwell

huh...... quick question..... after watching this trailer..... does Torchlight 2 have co-op? 

Posted by Nytrik

All my dreams, all my dreams.

In an interview, they said they were testing up to eight. Man, that would be insane.

List and info of what's new and updated. They are trying to allow multiplayer with mods. Too cool.

It is better than that the Schaefer brothers are two of the main guys that created Diablo.
Posted by fedorajay

Playing as Brock Sampson was awesome in the first one. I hope the modding/skinning community gets behind the sequel as well.

Posted by StrikerTheLizard

Music sounds a lot like Diablo II. Which in turn sounds a lot like Slayer. Which sounds good.

Posted by geirr

..and now we play the waiting game.

Posted by MisterMouse

looks pretty good! and i am glad there is somewhat a change of scenery!

I suppose that is because the music in Torchlight is written by Matt Uelmen. Who also scored Diablo and Diablo II.
Posted by dillinger

ahh.  everyone is overlooking the downside to this.   
 

It's going to be literally flooded  with hackers

Posted by Mumrik

I will play this game solely because of Matt Uelmen...

Well they say at the begining that they r working on a mmo, inspired in the world of torchlight, so this is the sequel to the first game, not the mmo, i guees, right?
Posted by ICryCauseImEmo

Looks good I wouldn't care spending 40-50 bucks if they deliver a lot more content then the original. Although I did get 40+ hours out of this amazing game.

So you can now be one of 4 people clicking furiously to do anything?

Sup dog. 
 
I heard you like Diablo.

@KinjiroSSD: The only thing I thought Torchlight had in common with D1 are that they both only have one town and similar dungeon progression. The items, mobs and skill progression in Torchlight is more like D2 by far, which I think is a bigger part of the game. 
 
But sure I guess I see what you mean.

You could always just play with people you know. Maybe Giantbomb could start a Steam group when it's out.

Yes, it's not the MMO. By "planning ahead" i mean i'm pretty sure they planned from the start not to include co-op in the first one, and if it sold well, they could sell the next one solely of co-op. I think it's such a bullshit move to leave it out of the first game.

You have to remember they had a very limited budget. Programming net code would cost too much time and money then. The fact that they used a free game engine shows what they were working with.

@Flaboere:  There is an interview with the Max Schaefer that Brad did. He explains that the original Torchlight had a quick development cycle. 
 
They didn't leave it out because they were going to cash in on it with a sequel. This co-op game was most likely a byproduct of the development of their MMO. He doesn't even mention making a co-op game during the interview! And I'm sure they aren't going to just release Torchlight with co-op, they'll probably add other stuff as well, like character creation maybe?
Posted by Rox360

Oh god, yes please. I don't even care if no one else I know buys it so I can play with them. More Torchlight = satisfied customer (me!)

Posted by HadesTimes

Holy crap, 4 player co-op! That's awesome! Not that there was any doubt that I'd be picking this up.  Those RUnic guys are the BOMB!
