Torchlight II receives healthy-sized patch – includes two new pets!


By on November 16, 2012 at 4:28 pm

There has been a reasonably sized patch for Torchlight II released, which mostly seems like a bevy of bug fixes and rebalancing, a few pathfinding errors and typos here and there, as well as adding Russian and Polish languages and better support for Cyrillic characters.

But most importantly, the patch has added two new pets: an owl and a badger. I imagine it will be about 5 minutes before someone mods him into a honey badger. Hit the jump to see the full list of changes the patch makes.

GUTS (the editor) can not come soon enough!


If it was a real honey badger, the player would become unnecessary. The damn things are insatiable hate machines of furry indestructible rage.


Where is my OWLBADGER‽

Clearly Runic are not paying attention to the most important things…
