Torchlight 2 will not only eventually produce a set of official mod tools, it’s going to support Steam Workshop, making the promotion, acquisition and installation of these community-made delights a breeze.

Torchlight 2 will finally be given a release date on Friday morning, August 31. The news was posted by Runic over on the official website. Here’s the word: “August 31 kicks off of our favorite con, PAX Prime, and we’ll be there to show Torchlight II and tell everyone the official Torchlight II launch date,” reads the post. The date will be posted on the website, as well as on the game’s Facebook page and Twitter account.

Writing on the Runic Games forum, founder Travis Baldree offers an explanation of why Torchlight II – once expected well before Diablo III – is taking forever and a week to actually surface. It’s a detailed breakdown which essentially boils down to “it’s hard work to balance the acts of a dungeon crawler”. Well, we saw how long it took Blizzard, and the developer is still tweaking post-launch, so we’ll cut Runic some slack. Torchlight II is still expected sometime this year.

Runic has gathered together a compelling body of evidence suggesting Armed Heroes Online developer EGLS ripped a large number of assets directly from Torchlight. EGLS’s response was a flat denial, but Runic boss Travis Baldree told PC Gamer he has no doubt regarding the alleged plagiarism and is seeking to have Armed Heroes Online removed from the Canadian App Store. The whole report is pretty damning; click through for side-by-side comparisons and other intriguing similarities like identical, misspelled filenames. Whoops.

Runic’s announced a massive network stress test for Torchlight II ahead of the close of its current beta for the game. The test will begin tonight at 7pm BST (11am PST) and continue until next Tuesday at 7pm BST (11am PST) for holders of a Runic account. Those who haven’t signed up for an account by now may have a better chance at gaining beta access for this weekend.

Although we still don’t have a firm release date, you can pre-purchase Torchlight II on Steam right now. The $20 price tag includes a giftable copy of the original, which is still well worth playing, as well as a key to access the Neverwinter closed beta scheduled for later this yet. The dungeon crawling sequel is expected once the initial Diablo III madness dies down, perhaps as early as June.
Thanks, PC Gamer.

The Torchlight 2 FAQ at over at RunicGamesFansite.com has been updated with a bit of news regarding the game’s release. According to Runic, the RPG will see a release sometime during November or December of this year, unless “someone on the team dies.” Awesome. Upon release, the game will run you $20, and players will be able to choose between the Embermage, Berserker, Engineer, and Outlander as a class. Thanks, MMORPG.
