Runic Games has unveiled the launch date for the action RPG Torchlight at PAX today.

    The studio, which mostly consists of former Diablo II developers, today unveiled at the Penny Arcade Exposition (PAX) that its action RPG, Torchlight, will be launched on 27 October this year. It will be available as a fully downloadable game for £12 GBP ($19.99 USD).

    You can catch a glimpse of the game at PAX, where it will be showcased by Runic Games’ CEO, Max Schaefer (co-designer of Diablo) and president, Travis Baldree (designer of Fate).

    “PAX is a unique venue geared towards video game enthusiasts and we are excited to be showcasing Torchlight and look forward to seeing many of our dedicated fans at PAX,” Schaefer said in a statement.

    Torchlight is an action RPG with a comical theme, similar to Mythos. It is built on making each adventure unique through randomised levels, monsters and treasures. The game also features puzzles and a user interface that makes it easy to jump straight into the game.
