When it comes to the action role-playing, hack-and-slash dungeon crawler genre, Diablo is the franchise that immediately pops up in most gamers’ minds, but there are actually plenty of great alternatives. That would include Runic Games’s Torchlight II, which happens to be free right now on the Epic Games Store.

According to the store page, Torchlight II was only released on the Epic Games Store yesterday, on July 16, 2020. Boy, Tim Sweeney sure is lenient with those launch-day freebies!

Torchlight II is filled to the brim with randomized levels, enemies and loot,” reads the official game description. “Capturing all the flavor and excitement of the original, Torchlight II expands the world and adds features players wanted most, including online and LAN multiplayer.”

Here are some Torchlight II’s features, which include the ability to play as four different classes. There’s even mod support! Be sure to grab a free copy before the offer expires on July 23.


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.


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 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.
