Torchlight 2 launch trailer released

The developer behind Torchlight and its sequel, Runic Games, has just released the official launch trailer for Torchlight 2, the highly anticipated hack-n-slash Diablo-alike.

It's a bit early for a "launch" trailer as Torchlight 2 is currently on track for a September 20 release, but maybe Runic Games just wanted to get in on all the PAX Prime festivities.

The anticipation for Torchlight 2 has risen substantially since the release of Diablo 3, which some hardcore fans saw as disappointing. Over the past few years, speculation had always been that Torchlight was some sort of steward to the throne of Diablo, but now it seems likely that Torchlight 2 could gain popularity to rival its Blizzard rival.

    seems like a sold buy. Basically everything that Diablo was supposed to be wrapped up in a more economical package. anyone who is jaded by Diablo 3, please get this game.

    Looks awesome. I'll be glad to buy this day one (if not before should I have the funds). Hopefully it won't go all Diablo III on me. Damn money grubbing Blizzard, YOU GOT MY HOPES UP BLIZZARD!

    Man, I really want to play this, but why did they wait to release it only mere days after Borderlands 2 comes out!? The original Borderlands commanded well over 100 hours of my time...

    I would love to see Torchlight become bigger than Diablo because its better in every way.

    Sweet, looking forward to the sequel of a game actually made by the guys that made Diablo. Unlike Diablo 3...
