Torchlight 2: Beta Weekend Incoming

    Would love to try the beta, but really dislike free weekends and usually end up avoiding the weekend completely.

    Have Torchlight 1 though and it is really fun, wished I tried the beta though. The probably $18 for the 1st week sale has me holding off til the last minute.

    If they released last september , as they prommised - they would made a killing sales. Even if they released it early this year.

    Now people bought expensive D3+GW2 ... i dont even see opportunity to play Torchlight 2 in at least 6-10 months , and by then it will be discounted even more.

    So instead grabbing sales from whole Darpg market , they will grab only die hard fans + d3 deniers.

    Real bad buisness decision on their part :(

    Well, it's a good thing that they aren't out just to make a killing off of sales, they actually want to put out a game that people will enjoy. That's exactly what they're going to do, no matter when they release it.

     

    It only costing $20 is their favor as well. Who wouldn't buy it at that price? And, with such a low price it's not likely to drop for quite some time

    Have to agree.

    Even if I get it for free I'll be passing for now for above reasons.

  • UniversumUniversum Toronto, ONPosts: 39Member

    I signed up 24 hours ago, no email yet I'm not surprised.

  • xmentyxmenty SingaporePosts: 679Member

    Same here no invite too.

    Hope its not ERROR 37.

    Pardon my English as it is not my 1st language :)

  • PlutonasPlutonas AthensPosts: 32Member

    From where guys do we download the game please!

  • TheLizardbonesTheLizardbones Arkham, VAPosts: 10,910Member

    I thought I had a Runic Games account, but it turns out all I had was a forum account from when I purchased TL1. So I have my account, hopefully a beta invite will be incoming shortly. If not, meh, whatever. Buying through Steam seems like a likely thing anyway. :-)

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    Hard to say, I went afk and it dl'ed some patches too. Initial dl was around 750ish mb, then it did some patchings. Seems to be ready now, pretty quick, all in all.

    Can create characters but can't log-in yet.

    At least ... it says wrong PW but I think the event hasn't started yet. It should start at 11 AM PDT which should be 18:00 GMT/UTC, which should be 20:00 CET. i.e. 4 hours from now. Is that correct? I be very bad at maths.

    +1 for getting to pick gender and preset faces, hairstyles and hair colors. Also many pet options. Pretty extensive character creation for a hack and slasher.

    +1 for very impressive music too. <3 Cellos (especially when played by women just in pj's).

    Do you only need a runic games account or do you have to sign up for something else?
