We call this a Diablo-style game because it really is similar in terms of how the game is played and the perspective it is in. Also, the developers, Runic Games, behind the Torchlight franchise has actually worked on Diablo and Diablo II.

Most likely it will b/c there seems to be a focus on online play and, well, it is perfect world. But I really dont mind as these games tend to focus on grinding upon grinding upon grinding anyways. Not making it free to play would be quite odd. But its not like they do free to play wrong. Their games are quite enjoyable and payment always seems fair

I just hope that the Outlander class make's its way onto the mobile version I'd preferred a port of TL 2, but a mobile only game it's just OK, worked for Deus Ex, Dead Space and even CoD.

"Free"-to-play bullshit double-speak. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Torchlight 2 on PC was fantastic. Better than Diablo is a lot of ways for me. Looking forward to this. I'll likely try it no matter what the pay model.
