Runic Games has yet to officially announce the release date of Torchlight 2, although it seems that a launch after Blizzard’s Diablo 3 has been pointed out as a possible timeframe. However the developer has been doing a pretty good job so far at keeping their fans and players up to date and has since released a new cinematic for the Torchlight 2 dubbed “New Heroes Will Arise”. The cinematic will basically fill players in on the events post-Torchlight and will give them an indication of where Torchlight 2 will begin. Taken from Runic Games’ blog:

“This particular cinematic opens the game, filling in the story between the end of Torchlightand the beginning of your hero’s quest in Torchlight II. Art Director Jason Beck created all the storyboards, and Klei Entertainment animated the scenes with sound effects. JD Wiker wrote the script, and Matt Uelmen assisted with sound effects and provided the score. Here’s Jason Beck with some insight into the process.”

For those who might have missed out on the first installment of Torchlight, the cinematic might not really make much sense to you, but given that the sequel is several months away, there’s still time for you to load up on the game and give it a spin.
