The developers at Runic Games know you've been waiting. Their long-brewing RPG sequel was supposed to be out last year, to give even players a dose of hack-and-loot before the even longer-brewing Diablo III came out. Now, Blizzard's game will be hitting shelves before Torchlight 2.

So, the powers-that-be at Runic have offered up the game's opening cinematic to whet fans' appetites. If the art style in the teaser looks familiar, that's because the animation was done by Klei Entertainment, who have produced the Shank games. The cartoony clip reveals the threat that you'll be facing up against in Torchlight 2, with sequences that hint at the kind of co-op experience you'll be having. Makes the wait a little better, no?
