Grim Dawn: Forgotten Gods Expansion Now Live on PC
Forgotten Gods, the third major expansion for the hack 'n' slash action RPG Grim Dawn, launched yesterday on PC with a few months of delay on its original late 2018 schedule. It's available via Steam, Humble Bundle Store and GOG.
You'll need not only the base Grim Dawn game but also the previous expansion (Ashes of Malmouth) to play Forgotten Gods. The game is also expected to hit Xbox One soon, but Crate Entertainment didn't provide a release date yet.
