Torchlight II Launches on PS4 September 3, Includes PS4-Exclusive Pet

The throwback dungeon crawler returns with a redesigned user interface and a brand-new pet.

Here at Perfect World Entertainment, we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with the developers at Panic Button to release Torchlight II on PlayStation 4 for the very first time on September 3! This fall, Runic Games’ classic dungeon crawler will debut at PlayStation Store for just $19.99.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost an entire decade since Runic Games unveiled the original Torchlight game on PC. This beloved little dungeon crawler first burst onto the scene right when hack’n’slash ARPGs were at the height of popularity. Torchlight captured the hearts of gamers across the world with its charming art style, earth shattering combat, lavish loot drops and unique pet system (Who could forget that ferocious little ferret?). These signature elements were incorporated into the game’s sequel in 2012, which finally introduced a way for Torchlight fans to party up with their friends in combat.

Now for the first time ever, PS4 players can experience the magic of Torchlight in a new version of Torchlight II that has been developed exclusively for consoles. Panic Button has redesigned its console user interface to help players navigate through the sprawling continent of Vilderan with ease. In addition, the team has developed a new targeting system and an intuitive control scheme for PS4 controllers that makes combat feel even more powerful. In the true spirit of Torchlight II, players can team up with their friends on PSN to wipe out hordes of monsters, complete challenges and earn new PS4 Trophies.

We’re excited for PlayStation.Blog readers to be the very first to learn that we will be releasing a brand new pet, exclusively for PS4! When Torchlight II launches on September 3, PS4 players will automatically unlock the Faerie, an enchanting new pet that is brand-new to the Torchlight universe.

Whether you are a longtime Torchlight fan who can’t wait to relive the glory or you’ve decided to jump into the action for the very first time, there’s no better time to play Torchlight II than when it’s released on PS4. We look forward to seeing you all this fall!

  • Is there going to be a physical version of Torchlight II available? I would love a copy of the game on my shelf

  • Is there local coop?

  • Is it going to be remastered for PC and allow cross-play together with PS4 users? That would be so amazing to revive it on PC!

  • Awesome news! I loved this series. Being able to send your pet back to town whenever you wanted was really great, as it left you in the dungeons to continue exploring instead of worrying about inventory space.

    I know this is going to sound crazy but I have strong memories of playing the first Torchlight on PC sometime between 1999 and 2001. I remember first playing the game at demo booth where a bunch of PC games were being shown off at the mall and purchasing the game on CD-Rom not long after. Videos and screenshots of the game are instantly familiar despite the fact I didn’t have a windows PC when the game supposedly released in 2009. To this day it’s something I’ve never been able to explain.

      Actually turns out my dates were a bit off and it was actually Fate I had played and not torchlight. That’s been bothering me for years!

    • Congratulations, thanks to this launch, you finally solved a decade long mystery! :)

    • Considering both Runic Games and the parent company Perfect World were not founded yet. Perfect World founded in 2004 and Runic Games in 2006. The developers that created Torchlight were at the time employed by Blizzard developing Diablo 2. I highly doubt you played Torchlight before Diablo 2 even released. You are probably getting Diablo 1 and Torchlight confused, which can be an understandable mistake considering Torchlight was basically the successor to Fate and Diablo 2. Torchlight developers used portions of Diablo coding, sounds, mechanics in Torchlight. Fate was the game before Torchlight that featured the ability to have a pet (cat or dog) with you on your adventures.

    Hola cuando se va a solucionar el error de PlayStation netword

  • Only getting it if it has the ability to play coop locally

  • KosTanich_RuS

    I remember spending hours in the first part and it’s very strange to realise it came out 10 years ago…

  • MidnightDragonDX

    Nice. Wish you’d bring the first one here as well.

    • The first one came out for the Xbox 360 and is backwards compatible the the Xbox One, if you have either of those. There’s also Dungeon Hunter: Alliance for the PS3, which is very similar.

  • Wow. Just this morning I was wondering why there wasn’t a console port of Torchlight II, then this shows up in my email. How cool is that?
