In our Torchlight II review we praised it for allowing mod support, and remarked that “mod support is literally the most important thing a PC game can ever include”.
Now that mod support is set to become expanded, as Runic Games have officially released GUTS, the game editor for Torchlight II. Using GUTS (which doesn’t stand for anything, by the way) you can modify “almost everything about Torchlight II, from item and skill balance, to level layouts, animations, quests, and much more.”
“GUTS mods can be shared with your friends, and multiplayer games using mods can be found in the modded games lobby. In addition, A new launcher lets you customize which mods are currently active.”
Steam Workshop support is also included, with the one-click subscription to hosted Workshop mods part and parcel of the new package. There’s heaps of new content on the way as well, so hit up the official announcement for all the details.
Torchlight II is only $9.99 on Steam until April 9, so you’re basically a madman (or woman) if you don’t already own it at this point.
