4 minutes read


An action RPG that offers vast exploration, character customization, and multiplayer fun.


‘Torchlight II’ enhances the action RPG experience with a larger world and deeper customization.


The plot starts with the destruction of the town of Torchlight, at the hands of the Alchemist from the first game. The player character follows the trail of destruction left in the Alchemist’s wake as he searches for a cure to his illness which has driven him insane.
Like the original Torchlight, Torchlight II features randomly generated dungeons for the player to explore, and numerous types of monsters to fight for experience and loot. Torchlight II maintains the same basic gameplay as its predecessor, but features overland areas with multiple hub towns, and a longer campaign. Other new features include time of day cycles, weather effects, and a redesigned user interface.
At the end of the first Torchlight, the ancient dragon Ordrak — the source of the corruption under the town of Torchlight — was defeated by the Destroyer, the Alchemist, and the Vanquisher. Several years have passed, and the Alchemist has become obsessed with the dangers of Ember and the Ember Blight from which he was apparently never cured. He steals Ordrak’s Heart and destroys the town of Torchlight.


Four playable classes: Engineer, Outlander, Berserker, Embermage.


Action-packed with deep customization, multiplayer sessions, pets, and fishing.


A rewarding sequel that enriches the ‘Torchlight’ legacy.
