    Torchlight 2

    Runic Games has announced Torchlight II through an official website for the game.Initially slated for digital release in spring 2011, the game adds online co-op, an improved user interface, and fully customizable characters.

    Here’s a blurb:

    The most exciting new feature of Torchlight II is the multiplayer element. Play with your friends, and use the free peer-to-peer matchmaking service to meet new players of a similar level and interest.
    Together players will discover expansive randomized outdoor areas and deep ominous caverns; random instanced and persistent dungeons, a huge variety of all new monsters and villains, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete.
    Players journey through the perilous Overworld, enjoying all new weather features, time of day events, and a rich and cunning story to drive gameplay.

    Features:

    Multiplayer – Play with your friends over a local area network, or over the Internet. A free matchmaking peer-to-peer service lets you make new friends for exciting co-op play.

    Customizable Characters – Players create and customize a character from one of four classes available and choose an animal companion. Through cosmetic, class, and gender choices, skill path decisions, and the treasures they acquire, each character can be custom-tailored to each player’s needs.

    Moddability – Torchlight II will release with an updated version of TorchEd, the Torchlight editor. Players have the option to create their own mods, adding even more content to the world. You and your friends can download the same mod and play together!

    New User Interface – Torchlight II boasts an entirely new, improved user interface, designed to be easier than ever for new players to pick up and play. Thanks to this intuitive interface, players have immediate access to a rich and varied world, with little experience necessary.

    Overworld Areas – Torchlight II has large randomized overworld areas to explore with weather, time of day cycles, and random events that provide players with even more content to experience.

    Random Dungeons – Delve into randomly generated dungeons within the game at any time for extra experience and rare loot. Dungeons in Torchlight II have even more branching paths to explore with friends filled with random events, rewards and dangers.

    Retirement System – Once characters are sufficiently leveled up, they can “retire” and bestow specific benefits and perks onto new characters.

    Pets – Players choose a pet to accompany them. Pets level up along with the player, and help in battle, learn spells, carry items, and perform a variety of support services.

    Fishing – Fishing returns in the sequel! Players can take a break from the high-energy pace of adventuring to relax by one of the many fishing holes and see what they can catch. Fish have unique benefits for the player and pet, while a number of other rewards can also be discovered.

    Awesome stuff.

    An MMO is planned for the franchise as well, but there’s still no date yet.

    Yeah, pretty cool. I read that on evilavatar.com this morning. They're interviewing the Runic team today for their podcast, which comes out tomorrow.

    i hope they make it so new class mods play nice with each other this time. other than that, sounds good.

    torchlight isnt even in the same league as D2 or TQ, but it was still a fun little game.

    I think it's just cool that they listened to the community on this. People were screaming for TL with Co-Op and they're gonna deliver!

    It's nice with multy and all but they should really add depth to it. Like with a STORY. Otherwise we got a Serious Sam Hack&Slash all over again.

    News:
    Torchlight 2 is already sounding like a much larger game than the original. "People felt a little claustrophobic with the structure - Torchlight is just one town and a series of dungeons underneath. So the obvious remedy for that is to make big overworlds and different cities, so we're doing that," explains Max Schaefer, CEO of developer Runic

    Players will also be able to customize their character in the sequel with the "ability to select hair styles," but it is unclear if additional customization will be available. Runic is also working on a free-to-play MMO version of Torchlight, but Torchlight 2 will be released first. Says Schaefe

    EvilAvatar.com posted their podcast last week. It's shaky in the beginning, but overall it's good.
