October 13th, 2009

For Immediate Release: Torchlight available on Steam beginning October 27th.

Steam users, rejoice! No more waiting for Torchlight: Runic Games Inc, developer of the Action-RPG Torchlight, is thrilled to announce their new agreement with Steam, allowing players to download Torchlight on the first day it’s available, October 27th.

Previously, and as formerly announced at PAX, Torchlight would be in limited release through the Official site www.torchlightgame.com and through Perfect World’s portal on October 27, with download capability on Steam only available 30 days later.

“It’s important for us to make Torchlight as widely available as possible. Steam is an enormous outlet that many players use exclusively – we’re big fans ourselves – so we are really happy that it will be on Steam starting day one,” says CEO Max Schaefer.

Torchlight will be available for digital download on October 27th, through Steam and www.torchlightgame.com.
