Starting today, Torchlight fans can pre-order the hack’n’slash dungeon crawler, Torchlight II, on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One for $19.99 (Nintendo Switch users can pre-purchase the game later this summer). The classic action RPG debuts on all three platforms September 3, with exciting new content and updates designed specifically for consoles by the team at Panic Button. Those who pre-order Torchlight II ahead of its launch will unlock a brand new pet for the game – the beloved goblin “Yapper.” Xbox One users can visit the Microsoft Store to purchase the game in advance, while PS4 players can order the game from the PlayStation Store

Yapper isn’t the only new pet who will be making its debut in Torchlight II! When the game releases on consoles this fall, Xbox One users will have the opportunity to explore Vilderan with a Molten Imp by their side, a fiery little rascal with smoke and ember effects on its tail. PlayStation®4 players will be greeted by the Faerie, a magically crowned sprite that flutters with its monarch butterfly-like wings. A new pet designed exclusively for Torchlight II on the Nintendo Switch will be revealed later this summer. 

Torchlight II is the sequel to Runic Games’ award-winning dungeon crawler, Torchlight. Like the original, the game sets itself apart from other action RPGs with a charming art style, frantic combat, signature pet system and deep character customization. The console version retains these signature mechanics while adding enhanced controls, an improved targeting system and a new interface designed specifically with console gamers in mind. Players will also discover updated achievements and trophies to earn through gameplay, plus exclusive new pets. Torchlight II offers 4-player co-op, allowing players to team up with their friends for combat using a wireless Internet connection on all three platforms or through ad hoc play on the Nintendo Switch.

Torchlight II is currently rated T for Teen. Additional details will be revealed when the game releases worldwide on September 3. Learn more about the game by visiting Torchlight2.com.
