Torchlight, the action RPG from Runic Games, came onto the scene in 2009, caught on with an audience looking for a spiritual successor to Diablo and Diablo II, and was snatched up by the China-based publisher Perfect World after selling over 500k copies. Torchlight II, released in 2012, was well received while the third iteration of Diablo 3 stumbled out of the gate critically that same year. Now, players will be able to try their hands at Runic's new IP as Hob goes live on PS4 tomorrow, September 26.
Hob is a suspenseful adventure title that accentuates a vibrant world with puzzles, combat, and platforming. This is a bit of departure from the Torchlight
Sony is celebrating the launch of Hob with a webcomic illustrated by the game's concept artist Kristina Ness and chatting with Hob's Game Director and Lead Level Designer on their blog. Hob will be available on PS4 and Steam tomorrow.

Really digging the music and visuals, and if it's as quality as the Torchlight games, then this will be something I'll definitely be checking out.
