Torchlight seemingly came out of nowhere to become one of the most talked-about PC games of the last year. The $20 dungeon crawler is a favorite among many here at TR, and it scored an impressive 83 at MetaCritic. However, the game's lack of multiplayer support is glaring—an omission developer Runic Games is addressing in the sequel. The Torchlight II trailer released at the Gamescom trade show earlier this week notes the first game's missing multiplayer before proceeding to tease co-op gameplay across a nice selection of different environments.
Although the official site doesn't say how many players will be able to get in on the action, it mentions LAN play and a peer-to-peer matchmaking service if you want to take your party online. Torchlight II is slated to be released first as a digital download some time next year. Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the tip.
