Grim And Bear It: Grim Dawn Enters Steam Early Access

Grim Dawn 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.

When Grim Dawn was first announced, it was just on the cusp of the hack-and-slash revival, with Torchlight, Diablo 3 and Path of Exile yet to raise their axe aloft. Now it's a very different world, but Grim Dawn still looks like a gritty brawler, and 'from some of the makers of Titan Quest' should carry just enough pedigree that this is worth checking out. Also John liked it when he played an even earlier build back in May.
