More information on the game's release will be shared today, as part of this weekend's PAX Prime gaming convention. Additionally, gamers in attendance at the show can get their hands on Torchlight II.

Torchlight II was originally targeted to launch in 2011, and was most recently delayed last month for additional polish following the game's closed beta.

The game has players once again embarking on hack-and-slash role-playing game adventures through randomly generated dungeons to secure rare items. It includes new character classes, quests, monsters, and dungeons, and a much-requested co-op mode.
