Diablo, Mythos Vets' Action RPG 'Torchlight' Gets Trailer, Release Date

Runic Games, formed from the team behind Flagship Studios' Mythos when the developer closed shop, has today announced that its PC singleplayer dungeon crawler Torchlight will be released for download on October 27 priced at $19.99.

A Diablo-style action RPG--trawling randomly-generated dungeons, bashing hordes of monsters for randomised loot--Torchlight also boasts pets, fishing and a level editor.


The Runic team includes such notable figures as Blizzard North co-founders Max and Erich Schaefer, Fate creator Travis Baldree, and Diablo series composer Matt Uelmen.

A Torchlight MMO is also in the works, slated to follow the singleplayer release. Click on through for a new trailer overflowing with monster-slaying action.
