New Grim Dawn Expansion, Forgotten Gods, Due in Second Half of 2018
Crate Entertainment, the studio behind Titan Quest spiritual successor Grim Dawn, just announced that a new expansion called Forgotten Gods will be available in the second half of the year for the game.
In the Forgotten Gods expansion, you will journey beyond the bounds of the Erulan Empire, traversing burning sands, lush oases and volcanic wastes to reach the sun-beaten ruins of a city with secrets that should never have been disturbed. The flames of a forgotten god have been rekindled, sending ripples through the Eldritch realm and sowing terror even among the Witch Gods themselves.
Featuring a thrilling new chapter in Grim Dawn’s story, a new gameplay mode, quality of life features, hundreds of new unique items and more, the Forgotten Gods expansion will be an exciting densely-packed new addition, whether you are a dedicated player or just starting out with Grim Dawn.
With development already well underway, we expect Forgotten Gods to release in the second half of 2018!
The developers, who funded the game's development on Kickstarter back in 2012, also revealed that Grim Dawn has now sold over 1.2 million copies to date while maintaining a 91% overall rating for the user reviews on Steam. The first expansion, Ashes of Malmouth, launched back in Fall 2017 and also enjoyed strong reception thanks to a 90% overall rating for user reviews on Steam.
We reviewed Grim Dawn a couple years ago. Here's how Kai summarized his experience with it:
Grim Dawn has come a long way since its initial reveal nearly six years ago. While rooted in the foundation laid by its contemporaries, there are enough modern advances to keep the experience feeling interesting. In a genre dominated by games that rhyme with ‘flow’, Grim Dawn continues to find ways to appeal to veterans of the action RPG formula while simultaneously becoming a solid starting point for anyone looking to start gathering up legendary loot of their own.
Grim Dawn is a familiar, yet satisfying romp through a role-playing genre that's seen its fair share of innovations and dynamic methods to shoot and loot. Its setting is a nice change from the usual fantasy titles and its features and content are more than enough to keep you entertained for quite some time.
