Torchlight II - Making the World

by Dhruin, 2011-05-21 02:28:38

An update from Runic describes how the Torchlight II world is constructed:

Let's talk about Passes first, and give a few examples of what makes them different. Passes are tighter and typically more heavily themed areas that connect between other zones. They offer players a different feel and gameplay experience from the Overworld areas. These are more of a push your way through to the other end type of levels. Passes are also randomized in many ways. There are multiple versions of each pass that can roll, and even within each version, there are several random elements that can change your gameplay experience every time.

One of the early Passes in the game is called "Path of the Honored Dead". This area is dark and dreary, covered in fog, and crawling with all types of walking dead. Basically, it's always a Monday in here. This pass is the cemetery/memorial of the Estherian Enclave. The area is lined with graves, and shrines, and is home to the dungeon, "The Defiled Crypt", the first dungeon players will encounter in the game.
