Grim Dawn clicks through Ancient Notegypt in new expansion

Tip-top throwback action-RPG Grim Dawn yesterday launched its second expansion, Forgotten Gods, venturing into a fictional fantasy land that's not at all Ancient Egypt nuh uh to click on new monsters until they explode in showers of gold coins and new loot. The base game and the perquisite first expansion are on sale right now too. Given that our Grim Dawn review noted that Titan…

Grim Dawn pines for the Pyramids in its next expansion

Dry and dusty seems to be the In Thing for RPGs lately, action, MMO or otherwise. Among others, in developing a love of levelling and stats Assassin's Creed picked up a fondness for Egyptology, and Guild Wars 2's most recent expansion took the game out into the desert. Not wanting to be left behind, Crate Entertainment have announced a second expansion for their satisfying little…

Grim Dawn summons Ashes of Malmouth expansion

The first words of every summoned skeleton, after dark forces draw their scattered bones together and rebirth them from their warm soilwomb, are "WAHEY! LADS LADS LADS." Always grinning, this lot live to roll around laughing, pranking, and scrapping - but don't worry mate, it's only banter. You can now be a Lad Dad in Grim Dawn [official site], as the action-RPG last night launched…

Grim Dawn’s expansion raising Necromancer class

A spooky-ooky Necromancer class is coming to action-RPG Grim Dawn [Grim Dawn] in the next expansion, developers Crate Entertainment have announced. No Diablo 'em up is complete without a Necromancer, after all. I'd be fascinating to see how it worked with a Necrodancer but this will have to do. As you'd expect, Grim Dawn's Necrodancer will have powers to drain life, spread disease, and of…

Arena Action: Grim Dawn Launches Crucible Mode DLC

The action-RPG Grim Dawn [official site] - one of our favourite games so far this year - now has a touch of DLC. The newly-released Crucible Mode adds an arena wave survival mode with hordes of awful monsters to murder, defenses to build and upgrade, treasures to win, and mega-points to score. As survival modes go, it looks pretty robust. Naturally, it supports multiplayer too.

Clickclickclickclickclick: Grim Dawn Finally Released

"If you have an ARPG itch to scratch, I can't recommend you look anywhere else right now," our Alec said in his Wot I Think of Grim Dawn [official site]. It's an action-RPG in ye olde olde Diablo-y style, with wizards and warriors clicking on monsters until they explode in pleasing showers of rusty swords and golden coins. It's got pedigree too, as developers Crate…

Let The Gods Out: Grim Dawn’s Final Act Has Begun

Back in 2010, when it was first announced, I was as excited about Grim Dawn [official site] as I was about any other game in production. It's the work of Crate Entertainment, a studio made up of Iron Lore Entertainment veterans, and Iron Lore were the team behind one of my favourite ARPGs, Titan Quest. When the other kids were slaying demons in Blizzaro-Land, I…

Rosy-Fingered RNG: Grim Dawn Act II Arrives

There was a time when I found ARPGs exciting, my buttocks glued to the tiny swivel-stool before the one-armed bandits of Diablo II and Titan Quest, hoping that they would spew shiny loot into my lap. In recent years I've managed to shake the habit. I poked at Diablo III for a while but kept my distance and even though I enjoyed Path of Exile…

Grim And Bear It: Grim Dawn Enters Steam Early Access

Grim Dawn is the model of a modern videogame. Built by the remnants of Iron Lore Entertainment, using the engine and tools from their excellent but overlooked action-RPG Titan Quest. It's been in development for over three years, it got double its asking amount in a Kickstarter project in 2012, and now it's available to buy and play via Steam Early Access.

18 Minutes Of Heaven: Grim Dawn Alpha Footage

Grim Dawn, the action RPG that grew from stirring the ashes of Titan Quest in a Kickstarter crucible, has been relatively quiet. Unlike bigger, bolder games, developers Crate Entertainment took the cash of the crowd and then retreated into the warm, dark embrace of their community. The last video the team released was a year ago, and the website is basically a frame for their…
