Torchlight to hit Steam and retail at the same time
10/14/2009 12:37:00 AM
Runic announced today that their Action RPG Torchlight
will be available on Steam on October 27th, the day the game is being launched. If you wonder why you should care about this it's because the game is going to remind a lot of people of the Diablo games (which makes sense that part of the Runic dev team worked on the games for Blizzard). If you want another reason to mark this date on your calendar be sure to check out my hands on impressions
of the game from this year's Penny Arcade Expo.
Steam users, rejoice! No more waiting for Torchlight: Runic Games Inc, developer of the-Action RPG Torchlight, is thrilled to announce their new agreement with Steam, allowing players to download Torchlight on the first day it’s available, October 27th.
Previously, and as formerly announced at PAX, Torchlight would be in limited release through the official site www.torchlightgame.com on October 27, with download capability on Steam only available 30 days later.
“It’s important for us to make Torchlight as widely available as possible. Steam is an enormous outlet that many players use exclusively – we’re big fans ourselves – so we are really happy that it will be on Steam starting day one,” says CEO Max Schaefer.
