    Two new Torchlight II Screenshots Emerge?

    Happy weekend everyone! For those of you who are loyal visitors, newcomers from the FAQ being posted on Joystiq, or people who got lost in the search of Blizzcon news, I've got an unexpected surprise for you! Thanks to my loyal Google Alerts subscription I was notified of what at first glance appeared to be your typical aggregation blog, but on closer inspection appears to contain two brand new, high quality, Torchlight II screenshots! Look no further for the pics:

    Two new Torchlight II Screenshots Emerge?-torchlight2-013-1-jpg
    Unless memory is failing me completely, this is our first high quality pic of an Embermage skill in action, AND our first look at the Charge bar - part of the new charge mechanic that is being implemented into every class. It appears to be centered in the middle of a desert bandit camp, and also includes our first look at what might be some new kind of golem robot.

    The second image is our first high quality look at one of the Berserker's skill that launches waves of ice that bounce off of walls. It is a multiplayer game, and on the left you can see the character icons for the female Berserker and the male Outlander, which also might be new for us.

    Where did these pictures come from? Is it something leaked, with more to come, or simply something we missed in all the post-PAX news? Perhaps it came from one of the demonstrations in Germany or Russia? The files are named Torchlight2-013 and Torchlight2-15, so that would imply there are thirteen more images somewhere else. We'll let you know if we find more!


    Thanks to GamezRoomX for the pics!

    The chars are named like in the PCG video. At PAX, they had names like 009_Outlander. I guess the screens are post-PAX. Although the charge bar looks a bit strange when zooming in, might be a fake. The only thing that seems to indicate that they are quite actual is the fact that Runic didn't say something about it. If they were older or fake, Runic would have said it (like they always try to deny facts that aren't 100% true like release dates and the like). Just my thoughts

    Nah, definitely not a fake. It's too real and shows too much that is new for that. Good catch on the character names though, I'm guessing they came out of Germany or Russia then.

    Hm, if it is not a fake, we have 2 options: 1) It is from the German/Russian presentation. In this case, the charge bar wasn't implemented for all chars because the Berserker didn't show off anything like that in the gameplay video; which is quite long so we should have seen it. 2) It was leaked sometimes after the trip to Ger/Rus. In this case, the source would be quite interesting. Did someone try to contact the blog's atuhor?

    I talked to Brian (the CM) and he thinks it was probably a pic in a press pack that went out for Russia, but we just haven't seen yet. So likely not leaked, just luckily new.

    I love the first pic. The Embermage is going to kick arse.
