Want to play an isometric fantasy hack-and-slash dungeon-crawler with connection issues this weekend?
I mean, besides Diablo III.
If you’re looking for something (slightly) different, try out Torchlight II, which has a beta stress test scheduled for this weekend. To get into the beta, you’ll have to sign up for a Runic Games account. Invites will be staggered throughout the testing weekend, which starts Friday at 11:00 a.m. PDT and ends Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. PDT.
If you like what you see — annoying technical glitches aside — you can pre-order Torchlight II on Steam for $19.99. You can even buy a four-pack for $59.99 and send the other three to friends so you’re ready for multiplayer action right off the bat. The game is currently scheduled for a summer release.
If you’re playing Diablo III, will you give Torchlight II a look over the weekend? Or did you pass on D3 because of TL2‘s better pricing? Let us know in the comments below!
