As Torchlight’s launch draws closer, we know many of you are chomping at the bit to not only play, but begin the modding with the Level Editor (note, we can’t call it the PrEditor: that’s apparently been copyrighted. The nerve! We’re hashing out official names now.)

We’re not bundling the tools with the game – the download would be laborious, especially for the folks who just want the game. So how do you get these wonderful toys? The tools will be available here on our site by the end of next week as a free, separate download. Once it’s on our site for free download, it will become available several other places, including, which is also hosting a Mod database. As soon as it’s ready, you’ll know – we’ll post the news here, on Twitter, and in the forums.

Thanks everyone – just a few more days! We can’t wait!
