Personally, I am bit disappointed, though; I was hoping for an expansion to Torchlight SP. Well, spring 2011 shall herald a new era for an old dog like myself. I have never in my life played a MMO, but Torchlight II will be the first one.

I hope we can still make levels and such for Torchlight II.
