Torchlight v1.15 Update Released, Brings New Challenges and Other Various Tweaks

Developer Runic Games has updated its excellent action-RPG Torchlight (PC) to v1.15, adding some new challenges and fixing various miscellaneous issues in the process.

To upgrade, those bought the Torchlight directly from can download the 410MB v1.15 client from FileShack and use their key to unlock the full version--of course, you'll want to back up your saves first.

Those that bought it elsewhere will have to wait for their digital distributor to deliver the vendor-specific update, with Steam and D2D having already rolled theirs out. And if you snagged a boxed retail copy of Torchlight, your patch should be here soon.

Torchlight 1.15

Patch 1.15 includes 5 new challenge room maps to test your bravery and wit! New players can now obtain these maps as rewards for completing various quests from Vasman in Torchlight. New challenges await in the Tomb of the Awakened, Estherian Ruins, Dwarven Fortress, Molten Prison, and Black Palace.

      I picked this up during the holiday sale for $5. After about 70 hours, and still not having beat the game, I feel I gypped Runic out of some money. =(

        Do you mean you haven't finished the main quest? Or you haven't run out of dungeons? Because you can "beat" the game by finishing the main quest, but the other dungeon goes to something insane like floor 200 or something, and then there are the randomized level scrolls, essentially meaning the game is never ending. What level is/are your character(s)?
