Coming from the desginers who made Diablo, Mythos, Mythos II
, we're expecting quite a lot from their new title, Torchlight.
This classic Diablo
style 2D hack-and-slasher can in every way be considered the spiritual successor to Mythos
, and in some ways even more closer to the original Diablo
. For instance, Torchlight
is a town with another world underneath it -- that and it's going to be a single player RPG before it goes MMO. But rest assured, it will go MMO in a year to a year and a half.
First, we'll discuss features that will exist at singleplayer launch later this year, then we'll cover the new elements planned when the game expands into a massively multiplayer game. Check it all out after the jump along with gameplay footage, complete with Felicia Day of The Guild trying her hand at a beta version of the Action RPG.
