Torchlight II Hits PAX To Show Off Embermage and $20 PriceS

Torchlight II will sell for $19.99, the same price as the original, surprisingly fun PC action game when it releases later this year, developer Runic Games said today.

"It's always been our goal to provide exceptional value for the price," says Max Schaefer, CEO of Runic Games. "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 Games, which is showing the game at Penny Arcade Expo this week, also announced the fourth playable class of Torchlight II, the magic-wielding Embermage. The Embermage joins the previously announced Engineer, Outlander, and Berserker classes.
