Action RPG Torchlight II is free to keep on the Epic Games Store

One of the best action RPGs from the last decade will be free to claim on the Epic Games Store for the next seven days.
Epic Games continues with its campaign of giving away free games every Thursday.

Last week we got not one, but three free games: The Escapists 2, Killing Floor 2, and Lifeless Planet.

This week, we are getting "just" one game, but that one is one of the best action RPGs from the last 10 years - Torchlight II.

Torchlight II is an action role-playing dungeon crawler, the sequel to Torchlight(2009).

The game was developed and published by Runic Games, and it was released for PC on 20 September 2012, while ports for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One were released on 3 September 2019.

The game offers four classes to choose from, Engineer, Outlander, Berserker, or Embermage, and you can play it single-player or in co-op.  A planned sequel, Torchlight III, is scheduled for release in 2020.

Torchlight II will be free to keep on the Epic Games Store for the next seven days, and after that, two new free games will be Next Up Hero and Tacoma.

Torchlight II key features

With four classes to choose from, you’ll have a variety of play styles at your fingertips. Each class can be played as either male or female, with customized cosmetic features and looks to make your hero stand out.

Play co-op with your friends via LAN or over the Internet for free. Our matchmaking service lets you connect and play games with people around the world.

Explore the vast overworld and multiple hub towns of Vilderan. Fight through rain, snow, day and night. Level randomization ensures new layouts, paths, loot, and monsters every time you play.

Torchlight II supports Steam Workshop, allowing for automatic mod subscription and synchronization. Choose from over a thousand mods and bend the game to your will. Or use GUTS, the Torchlight II editor, to create and share your work with the entire world!

In New Game Plus, the game's not over until you say it is. Once you've beaten Torchlight II's primary campaign, you can start again with the same character for a significantly greater challenge. You'll keep all the skills, gold, and gear you worked so hard for!

These popular features make their return in Torchlight II in an improved form. More choices, better effects, and your pet will still make the run to town to sell your loot so you don’t have to.
