When Runic Games announced that they would be releasing a console version of their popular action role-playing game Torchlight, they confirmed that they would only be releasing it for the Xbox 360 and unfortunately, not on the PlayStation 3.
However, as we previously mentioned in our article here, Travis Baldtree — the boss of Runic Games — claimed that the Xbox 360 version would feature quite a few differences to the original PC release, such as a faster combat pace that feels more maneuverable.
Now we are hearing a few more details about the upcoming Xbox Live Arcade release, including the fact that it will feature new perks and content. According to Ishaan over at siliconera.com, the XBLA version of Torchlight comes with new armor sets and weapons and even more quests.
The console version will also reward Xbox 360 gamers with specific perks for fulfilling different criteria. For example if players want the chance to earn an early re-spec potion, they just have to invite a friend to play the Torchlight game. If the friend accepts the invite, they will also receive the potion.
Another perk that will be available for the first two weeks following the game’s release is the Ogre Fish item, which turns your pet into an Ogre indefinitely. What do you think of the new perks, changes and content for the XBLA version of Torchlight? Will it tempt you to download the game?
