Runic Games has announced that Torchlight II will release at the same price point of the original game. It will be $19.99 when it comes to downloadable services later this year. Given the response toward the first game, it only makes sense to imitate success.
"It's always been our goal to provide exceptional value for the price," said CEO Max Schaefer in the announcement.
"Everyone who wants to play Torchlight II will be able to comfortably afford to do so, and they'll be able to play with their friend online or via a LAN, or play single player offline, all with no further purchases."
Runic also announced the fourth and final playable class, the Embermage. The lore page for the Embermage details her powers, which include the usual elemental spells along with manipulation of time and space. In context of the game, this means teleporting to a better position for her dual blades. She joins the Outlander, Berserker, and Engineer.
The announcement didn't include a release date, however, so it's still set for the nebulous time-frame of 2011. It's a PC exclusive for the time being, as Runic has said putting it on the Xbox 360 would require redesign to fit the memory limit.
