Torchlight II is a dungeon crawler developed by Runic Games which came out for PC in 2012. This Diablo-like franchise is regarded by many as a cult classic, and it's making its way to Xbox One next month. The game is also coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, but Panic Button went all-out for the Xbox One X version. According to the Microsoft Store, the game runs at 4K resolution on the system. From reports that emerged from E3 2019 and Gamescom 2019, it looks like the title runs at 60 frames per second (FPS) on the machine as well. We were able to independently verify these reports.

While Torchlight II isn't a graphically demanding game due to its concept art-like visuals, the fact that it runs at 4K resolution and 60 FPS means that it looks amazing on modern displays. It's almost like watching a painting in motion. You'll have to experience it for yourself when it launches on September 3.

According to the developer, Torchlight II takes you back into the quirky, fast-paced world of bloodthirsty monsters, bountiful treasures, and sinister secrets. And, once again, the fate of the world is in your hands. It's also filled to the brim with loot and allows you to play with your friends online.

Torchlight II can be preordered through the Microsoft Store for $20. Luckily, the download is only around 2 GB. If you love the franchise or loved the game on PC, be sure to check out the console version.
