Developer Runic Games, the team behind both Torchlight games, have finally announced the release date for their upcoming game, Hob, first announced 2 years ago.
If you cant wait for Hob, check out our list of the best RPGs on PC.
In a video released on the Playstation blog, Runic Games confirmed that Hob would release on September 26 for PC and PS4. Accompanying the trailer are six development titbits from the team.
Hob is a long way from Runics previous projects. Torchlight and its sequel Torchlight 2 were both isometric action RPGs with significant procedural generation, in a similar vein to games like Diablo. By contrast, Hob is more of a 3D puzzle-platformer, although it shares a lot of its art style with Runics previous games.
The trailer shows off Hobs beautifully colourful environments, as well as a few of the tools at your characters disposal. Theres even a brief look at some of the combat, a lot of which looks like its been carried over from Torchlight.
