Grim Dawn is an Action RPG developed by Crate Entertainment.

The game is set in a gritty fictional world, which resembles the Victorian era. In a war-torn world of Cairn, humanity is close to extinction. Cairn became a battleground for two extra-terrestrial forces - the Aetherials and Chthonians. Both of which are eager to completely wipe out humanity for different reasons. The game tells us a story of several humans that try to adapt and survive the harsh times.

Like in most Action RPGs, the main focus of the game is put on battling the enemies and gathering loot - armor, potions, weapons, and gold. Grim Dawn features a crafting system that is similar to the one in a popular mod DoTA. The developers put a strong emphasis on the enhanced physics in the game, environmental kills, enemies dismemberment and a totally new mission system.

The players are free to choose one of eight classes present in the game. Several factions are also featured. As the plot progresses, the player will have to choose which factions to join. Joining one faction will make the opposing one hostile to the protagonist.

Grim Dawn reviews and comments

I'm still on my first playthrough right now, but so far the game has been great. Very enjoyable ARPG. Nothing that will make you go "wow this is something I've never seen before", but everything was combined into a beautiful product that you can play for hundreds of hours and continue to enjoy.

I'm an ARPG fan: Is there any Reason to buy Grim Dawn? -Probably there is a Reason not to do it! For Fans of the unofficial Predecessor Titan Quest, Grim Dawn is a Mandatory Program anyway: Despite the completely different Setting, you can immediately find your way around thanks to the almost identical Interface and all The features of the Predecessor. But not only that-Grim Dawn expands the Core Aspects that were already inspiring at Titan Quest To include numerous Elements: With Crafting, New Upgrades, Factions, Call system and much more, the Game got a huge Plus in Depth. But Fans of Scene Greats like Path of Exile or Diablo will also find what they're looking for here: The Setting has little to Do with the serene Greece of its Predecessor: Rape, Murder and underground Blood Temples of a crazy cult put the finishing Touches to the End-time theme. And Grim Dawn also looks much more serious than its Predecessor in terms of terms of playing technology: The Devotion system offers Space for Min-Maxing And (optional) elite opponents such as the Avatar of a Natural Deity players who have not extracted the Optimum from Their Character in Secrets across the Jordan River. Especially Annoying when the hardcore mode is activated, where the Death Of the Character is final. Once you have played the Main Game in all 3 Levels of difficulty, the Modding Tools offer potentially unlimited Gameplay-in Contrast to the Competition with Online Compulsion, what the Stuff can be made here. Numerous Modifications are Already available for Download in the Official Forum. TL: DR: Buy. Seriously. You will not regret it!

I haven't been drawn into writing a Review at any Game on Steam So far, but at Grim Dawn I want to make an Exception. The Game is, in my Opinion, currently the highest of The feelings the ARPG genre has to offer. At that time, the Developers already managed to create a Milestone with Titan Quest and want to build on that. This is an important Project, considering the Size of the developer team and its Budget. There are six Classes, two of which can be combined at Will. Each Class offers a Variety of active and passive Skills. In addition, so-called devotion points, which are distributed in the World, can be collected. This is used to learn more passive and active Skills in a third Talent tree. Hidden areas can be discovered again and again, with strong Enemies and Rewards. So Exploring the Game world is worth it. Last but not least because the Environments are beautifully designed by Hand (no randomly generated Levels). You also have a completely free Hand in terms of Equipment. There are no prescribed Rules to abide by when Developing your Character. For example, you want to play a Melee with Sword & Shild that causes Elementary Damage? Just too, it's possible. Or is it supposed to be a nimble Assassin with two One-handed Weapons, explosive Cocktails and Electricity Damage? That, too, can be implemented. All of this can be found at three Levels of difficulty (basically there are four, as the first Level of difficulty can be played into two Difficulties). At the highest Degree Of Difficulty, things are quite crisp. The Hero's Death is not very far away and you have to work a bit on the Skills and Equipment to avoid going down. Those who are not proficient in the English Language can download and use one of the Translations created by the community from the official Forum. New Setting, new Mechanics, untimely Look, but convincing art design. By and Large, the Game offers an extremely thoughtful System with a lot of Character Development options. Now all that is missing is the official modding toolkit, which the Developers say will be made available sometime after the Game is Released, in order to adapt the Game 100% to your own Needs. Clear Buy recommendation!
