Runic Games has officially priced Torchlight 2 at $20, and has revealed the final class in the game as the Embermage. Previously announced classes were the Berserker, Engineer, and Outlander. Runic CEO Max Schaefer has said the price will allow everyone to “comfortably afford,” to play the game “via a LAN, or play single player offline, all with no further purchase.” There still isn’t a set release date for the game, but it is still on target for 2011. Thanks, Joystiq.

If Torchlight 2 blows up on PC and it’s the biggest thing since sliced bread we’ll probably want to give more attention to that before heading into the MMO world.” – Runic Games CEO Max Schaefer to Eurogamer.
