There are four classes to choose from, and each class can be played as either male or female; customised cosmetic features included. You can also choose between going the MultiPlayer route, or just exploring the vast open world.

Joystiq said it features an “incredibly polished and solid world”, while Charles Onyett from IGN said at the time of the game’s release that it “delivers pure, perfectly paced loot-driven euphoria”.

“‘Torchlight II’ doesn’t do anything radically new, but does everything incredibly well. It fits all the pieces of varied monster behaviour, interesting items, excellent skill design and random surprises together into a near-perfect formula, where the action never stops and rewards are never far away”. 

You have until 18:00 South African Standard Time (SAST) on 31 December to download Torchlight II for free. Simply head over to the Epic Games launcher to get your copy.
