In order to provide our customers with the best experience playing Torchlight II in the future, we are urging that all our users migrate away from our in-house downloadable Torchlight II installer package (a.k.a., the “Runic Installer”). This is important so that you will receive the benefit of a game package unencumbered by middleware systems which require perpetual maintenance.
What does this mean?
As of October 11, 2017, Runic Games will no longer provide updates or technical support for the Torchlight II “Runic Installer.” Moving forward, we will be referring our customers to partner sites in order to make their purchase of the game. Additionally, we will be suggesting migration as a default troubleshooting step for those who experience issues with their installation.
Previously purchased Torchlight II keys may be redeemed from our partners in the following ways:
- Steam: Torchlight II keys of the format XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX purchased from Runic Games or Perfect World prior to February 02, 2015 may still be directly redeemed through the Steam client. (See: How to add Torchlight II to Steam)
- GOG: Any customers who purchased Torchlight II before October 11, 2017 may redeem a fresh copy of the game using an original Runic Installer key (matching: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX) from https://www.gog.com/reclaim.
Can I still download the old version?
Yes, but it's an unsupported release and you may experience issues with it on newer versions of Windows.
- Torchlight II "Runic Stub Installer" Download (Runs on Windows XP SP3, Vista, 7, 8, 10)
This is a smaller initial download that patches in the rest of the game after installation.
- Torchlight II "Runic Offline Installer" Download (Runs on Windows XP SP3, Vista, 7, 8, 10)
This is a complete download which does not require additional patching after installation.
Note: If you originally purchased the Steam version, your copy is not eligible for this crossgrade offer. This KB only applies to downloadable copies of Torchlight II for keys starting with R or P. Physical retail copies, including the Daedalic-published installer disc, are still fully supported and are not eligible for this crossgrade offer.
