One of the best Diablo-like ARPGs on the planet is about to get a whole lot bigger.
Grim Dawn's massive new Forgotten Gods expansion will release on March 27, 2019 on Steam, Crate Entertainment today announced. The new expansion takes players outside of the known realms to explore the exotic searing sands and uncover story-driven secrets of a strange hidden deity.
Forgotten Gods adds a wealth of new content to the base game, including a dearth of new monstrosities to face, a fusillade of new items and gear to find, rune augments, a new class mastery called the Oathkeeper that synergizes with previous builds, a new repeatable game mode, and much more.
If you've even a passing interest in Diablo-esque dungeon crawlers, definitely give this one a shot. Grim Dawn has some of the most innovative mechanics out of any ARPG title I've come across, and is a great time either solo or alongside a few friends via PvE.
Grim Dawn: Forgotten Gods costs $15.99 and requires both the base game and the previous Ashes of Malmouth expansion to play.
