Video Gamers - Grim Dawn released tomorrow 25th Feb 2016

After 4 long years (from the Kickstarter point anyway) Grim Dawn is coming out of alpha access and into full release tomorrow, 25th February 2016. The spiritual successor to Titan Quest the small team (2 initially, now up to 10) have worked wonders with the TQ engine. It's atmospheric, full of nasty foes to fight, plenty of loot (of course ), 6 classes to play around with, a Devotion system to add even more to your characters and factions to win favour with for access to more goodies.

If you haven't heard of it, then have a look and see if it's for you.

Sales have now passed 800k, a new rogue-like area will be released just before Christmas all being well (nice Chrissy present) and an expansion should be out next year.

Re: Video Gamers - Grim Dawn released tomorrow 25th Feb 2016

Well, not too many games compared to many players. I started off as a city builder with Stronghold, Zeus: Master of Olympus, Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom and Children of the Nile; went on to games like Port Royale, Anno 1503 and Patrician 3, then decided to try out an RPG when I spotted Two Worlds. Loved that so tried Morrowind and Oblivion and didn't like either so decided to try Titan Quest which I picked up as an aside really. Once I got into it I loved it and still do. I play every day pretty much and have done since I installed it back in 2008 so only the gods know how many hours I've got in playtime. When I heard that some of the developers who'd worked on that were working on a new game of course I was interested and bought it early then upgraded when they ran a Kickstarter. So now my days get split between TQ and GD with the occasional city builder thrown in for a change. And it seems things are going full circle for me as the GD team are now working on guess what? A city builder! Gaming heaven for me.

Anyone looking to get the game it's on sale now at half price on the GD website: $12.50 for the base game, $32.49 for the Loyalist edition. Because Grim Dawn has officially sold over 1 million copies!

Final countdown has begun. The Ashes of Malmouth expansion goes live on Wednesday, 11th October 2017 - around 1pm EST. Been playtesting it and it's a great addition to the base game.

Fair enough. Different games suit different people.

A new expansion for the game has just been announced, hopefully coming out in the second half of 2018.

There will be a live Twitch stream this evening by one of the game's developers where we'll get our first chance to see the new game mode "Shattered Realms" in action. Come along and see what it's like, ask your questions and generally enjoy the fun.

2pm EDT/7pm BST/8pm CEST

Re: Video Gamers - Grim Dawn released tomorrow 25th Feb 2016

Have to post this from a few weeks ago. The game is getting new movement skills like teleport, charge, leap and also whirlwind. Once the playtesters got their eager hands on the new Oathkeeper mastery one of them decided to push the whirlwind skill to the limit. This was the result.

Will get nerfed of course, but I can tell you the skill is still a lot of fun to play with.

The 2nd expansion Forgotten Gods will release on 27th March 2019, price $15.99.

http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=81465

Sales of the base game are approaching 2 million. Not bad for a small indie company who initially thought 200,000 copies sold would be a good target to aim for.

Re: Video Gamers - Grim Dawn released tomorrow 25th Feb 2016

Sales have gone well for FG, over 100,000 copies sold in less than a month and collectively, between all of the DLCs and the base game, Grim Dawn has now surpassed 3 million copies which is incredible for an indie company.

The GD forum now has a new home

if anyone's been wondering where it went to.

Nope, not really, although the company only consists of 13 employees. But with those sales and the fact the game gets mentioned along side big names like D3 and POE I'd probably label them as AAA Indie.

Although the game is pretty much finished in terms of big content, they're still adding smaller stuff - a new rogue-like dungeon is coming later in the year.
