Torchlight Update 1.12 Released

By Alice O'Connor, Nov 06, 2009 8:46am PST Update: Those who purchased Torchlight on Steam will be pleased to know that the update has now arrived on the digital distribution platform.

Original: A sizeable update for Runic's magnificent action RPG Torchlight has begun rolling out across its various digital retailers, with the 418MB Client 1.12 compatible only with copies bought direct from Runic itself now available over on FileShack.

The update's many changes include bug fixes, balance tweaks, the ability to change difficulty mid-game and reduced loading times--a change which necessitates a complete reinstall with the new client, so be sure to keep your saved games safe.

Those who bought Torchlight elsewhere must wait for their distributor to release their own individual versions, a forum post by Runic's Travis Baldree explains, which have been delivered to all vendors except Steam--whose version still requires testing.
