Torchlight II is four times bigger than Torchlight

Torchlight II

Runic Games president Travis Baldree has utilised the amazing power of maths to prove that Torchlight II has an average of four times as much content as the original Torchlight. On the company’s blog, Travis writes that he was personally surprised by just how much bigger it actually was – so surprised, in fact, that he put together this handy infographic showing the hard science behind it.

4x bigger doesn’t mean 4x better.
Half of Torchlight’s charm came from being so simple and elegant.

 

words cannot describe how much I’m looking forward to this.

It’ll still be simple and elegant, there will just be more variety. Which is ALWAYS a good thing.

 

Who cares just release it already!

 

Somehow I doubt they’ll give us 4x more stash space… but I guess we’re free to create as many mules as we want… unlike Diablo 3.

 

I think Runic have made a brilliant decision to wait until after Diablo 3′s release to bring out Torchlight 2. They were never going to outsell Diablo if they released at the same time, and people would have held off buying Torchlight to see how Diablo 3 was, if they’d released it before. However, now that Diablo 3 has been released is is clearly just a money printing machine for Blizzard and not an enjoyable game with any form of endgame content, people will be more than willing to jump ship to play the much more enjoyable Torchlight. They are quite likely to steal customers right from underneath Blizzard’s nose. It was a bit of a gamble, as if D3 had been good they would have been screwed, but I think its going to pay off. Big time.

dropping down a date would mean there is a dead line, perhaps this is what runic need in form of a kick in the bum to get the job done. Or are we seeing another ‘Duke Nukem Forever’ in the making.

 

I’m almost certain they’ve completely finished development, or are very near to it. They’re waiting for a drop in Diablo 3 players and then they’ll release. Its coming.

 

More content doesn’t matter when the combat is so slow and boring.
