“The "spiritual successor" to Diablo 2 that fans have been pining about for years.”

“Blow for blow, this is one of the best ARPGs in years.”
8.7 – IGN

“Grim Dawn’s the action RPG I’ve enjoyed most in quite some time, and I’m very keen to try the later chapters as they’re released. More so than Torchlight 2, which was a bit too much of a sugar rush experience for me, and certainly more so than Diablo III”

About This Game

Enter an apocalyptic fantasy world where humanity is on the brink of extinction, iron is valued above gold and trust is hard earned. This ARPG features complex character development, hundreds of unique items, crafting and quests with choice & consequence.

Key Features

  • Dual Class - Combine any of six distinct classes with over 25 skills and modifiers per class. Base classes include Soldier, Demolitionist, Occultist, Nightblade, Arcanist and Shaman.
  • Hundreds of Item Skills - Augment your class build with a diverse array of over 250 unique skills granted by items and equipment add-ons.
  • Collect hundreds of Items - Common, magical, rare, epic and legendary classes of loot. Plus over 20,000 possible magical affix combinations and over 200 rare affixes.
  • Quests with Choice and Consequence - You will face tough decisions that leave significant impacts upon the world. Strangers on the road, desperate families and even entire villages may live or perish based on your actions. Currently over 35 quests with 75+ lore notes to be collected.
  • Friendly and Enemy Factions - Earn favor with human factions to unlock additional quest lines, vendor discounts and special faction-based items and augments. Some neutral factions you can be turned into allies but aiding one will make the enemy of another. Hostile factions will remember your deeds and deepen their hatred of you, sending out large packs and elite heroes to hunt you down.
  • Devotion, an additional layer of skill customization allows you to acquire bonuses and powerful secondary effects for your class skills. These are unlocked from a giant constellation map with points acquired by finding and restoring destroyed or corrupted shrines hidden throughout the world.
  • Rebuild the World - Help human enclaves survive and flourish by securing vital necessities, rebuilding structures and rescuing survivors who can then lend their services to your cause.
  • 4 Person Multiplayer - Connect with Friends or make new allies in glorious multiplayer. Multiplayer encounters will put your teamwork to the ultimate challenge.
  • Fast-paced Visceral Combat - Enemy blood spatters, ragdoll physics and satisfying enemy death effects. Smash in doors and fight house to house, leaving a path of demolished furniture in your wake.
  • Rotatable Camera - If you choose to survey the full beauty of the world and always fight from the most optimal angle. Levels are still designed so that players are not forced to rotate the camera; it is purely optional.
  • Secrets and Perils Abound - 200+ Enemy heroes and bosses, hand-configured with their own unique arrays of deadly skills. 20+ secret areas hidden behind crumbling walls, hidden gaps and mysterious locked doors. Explode obstacles or repair structures to open new paths.
  • Rogue-Like Dungeons - Descend into special locked challenge dungeons that require a rare crafted key, where enemy levels increase as you progress and player teleport is disabled. There is no way out except to complete the dungeon or die trying.
  • Dynamic Weather - The world is brought to life with region-specific climates and a variety of weather effects. A sunny day can cloud over with mild rain showers that builds into a booming thunderstorm. Variable wind gusts blow grass and affect objects like windmills.
  • Recipe Based Crafting - Collect over 250 crafting recipes that allow you to combine salvaged components into unique crafted items and then, later, use those basic crafted items with higher-tiered recipes to complete items of amazing power.
  • Reclaim Skill Points - The ability to pay to reclaim points alleviates the fear and frustration of having to make early, uninformed skill choices that could permanently gimp a character.

Very very good Hack'n Slash, with a nervous gameplay in a victorian fantasy apocalypic world, very deep character customization. If you like Diablo II (no III), Path of Exile or Titan Quest, you'll love Grim Dawn. Warning : time consuming !

i don't leave many reviews, but this feels enough like diablo 2 that i had to spread the good word. as a loyal blizzard fan from the original warcraft 1, starcraft 1, and diablo 1 i just wasn't getting any satisfaction from diablo 3 anymore. it was decent for a while, but it just didn't scratch the itch. this game does it.

it takes everthing good about diablo 2, keeps it, and adds new updates. personal town portals you can share (with no scrolls to worry about), they just throw the bosses on you in the game world (without making it huge totally separate cutscene bull***t). and they straight copied the maggot layer from diablo 2, just changed the names. it's hilarious.

there's not a thousand difficulties to worry about, you have to earn them. there are bounties to do during the campaign. i paid the full 25 dollars, and it was worth every penny. and bought it for 2 of my other friends. the story is decent, and it kind of has a western/fallout feel to it. worth. very much worth.

Best Dark Fantasy there can be !!!!!

+Best value for your money
+ Using an "old" engine(Titan Quest) they've managed a darkish beautiful and varied artwork
+ Cave's & dungeon's enviroments that are interesting&unique just the way we want them(thought it could be more)
+ Music that is memorable a mix of post-apocalyptic 1700 century music that is just remarkable and nice to listen
+Camera that you can rotate and pin I mean is brilliant and make the game look "bigger"
+The weather like system is amazing(you go to bathroom and when you're back is nightfall)
+ Hybrid classes, it's not new but it just awesome to have 6 of them, or stick to just one =12 classes to play around
+ Devotion points that you can choose for you class or hybrid class.
+ Ability to re-spec Skill and Devotion points-that is just awesome,as you can turn back and completly remake your build
+ Lore that you can read
+ Nice quests as the game progresses and also bounties
+Your choices are important and they will affect playthroughs
+ Reputation system with factions doing bounties and the fact that you can change your faction is a plus
+ Loot is excellent and the fact that most items you can use except the normal one.
+ Elite enemies that actually pose a challange and you need care
+ Bosses that are unique and you need preparation to deal with them
+ Mods
+ Augments for your gear and oilments that help you fight this unique maps and gear

-Lag spikes
-Crashes and ohh boy I got so many especially while multiplayer
-Multiplayer kinda sucks
-Lack of chat system that can help get the players around to farm or to trade
-Hardcore think with this kind of servers is pure hard/CORE
-The fact that is not data mined and people can cheat with ease
-To ladderboard, no recognition for your plays no matter what you do except achievments
-No system kinda seasons where you'll feel somewhat entartain to have a challange of some sort
-Pets that do not gather loot or gold for you
-Dialogues could be shorter so I won't spend too much time reading
-Getting where you want on the map can be confusing till the star magically appears, or not so you loose time
-Tradding can be time consuming, so you'll have to get fast familiar with the trade forums
-It's a hard game for new people so patience is important
-It become kinda repetitive after a while
-Small comunity, I mean small but maybe it's better this way
-No value system for items so when you trade you do not know if it's a good "deal" or not.

Grim Dawn is an awesome hack-and-slash RPG, and here's why I like it:

- neat-looking graphics;
- post-apocalytic atmosphere, stylish armor, quests and written pieces of lore that help you submerge;
- decent soundtrack;
- 6 playable classes with possibility to combine any 2 of them, creating the array of different playstyles;
- soiled trousers (seriously, there's an epic item named soiled trousers).

Nothing special about the story, though: we're saving our world from the Evil again, but with the difference that the Evil has almost won by the moment we begin. I still haven't finished the game, so I can't say what plot twists lay ahead, and it would spoil the fun for you anyway.

I barely tried multiplayer with random people, got no friends to walk through the game with.

Grim Dawn is created on the same engine as Titan Quest, and they have a lot in common, but Grim Dawn feels more serious, sturdy and deep. I'm enjoying this game so far, and so will be you if you like hack-and-slash RPG genre.

Best ARPG ever played

Story line
Combat system
Choose between singelplayer and multiplayer
rotate your camera
zoom out your camera
zoom in your camera
Boss fights
Voice actors
Crafting system
Portal system

Some animations are not aweasome but they are ok.
When you move your camera is hoppering sometimes
The way you need to choose your class
You cannot customize your character. Only Female or Male nothing else

This game is actually:
10% Luck, 20% Skill, 15% Concentrated Power of Will, 5% Pleasure, 50% Pain, and 100% Reason to Remember the Name. (I always forget this name but no one cares)
10/10 going to play it again!

One of my favorite games in general. If you have the money, this is a must play. It is the game I go to when nothing else is scratching that "what should I play" feeling. Then I find myself hours later looking at the clock saying "It's already 2 am?"
The more I understand this game, the more I love it.

I'm very happy with the overall design of this game. My favorite features are the large map and lush scenery. Also, I like how you don't have to keep buying town portal scrolls (like in other games) - you just get to cast a portal for free as part of your basic controls. The inventory design is a bit retro, with each item consuming a certain size and shape of your pack space. This adds to the challenge of inventory management. Another cool aspect is one of the reasons I bought Grim Dawn - the skill tree allows you to combine traits of several character classes instead of being locked into one set of abilities. For example, I can have close combat abilities from my Nightblade PLUS the option to summon creatures with my Occultist.

The only thing I dislike at this point...is my personal portals disappear when I exit the game. This means I have to make it a goal to reach one of the preset portals in an area before closing the game down. Sometimes, it's just not possible - I have to re-clear an area's enemies the next time I boot up the game. When I have to leave for work, I gotta go! No time to make it to the nearest area's portal.

I bought this as a huge fan of Torchlight II a similar game which I've put at least 300 hours into) and I'm very satisfied with Grim Dawn so far. I'll give it a 9/10 with a point off for the inconvenient thing about portals. I highly recommend Grim Dawn, with highlights for replay value!

An amazing game all around.

- diablo 2 atmosphere (pretty "grim", as its name states) and bloody
- lootfest (gotta get all those epics / legendary items)
- good difficulty balancing (you'll always feel like your character could die if you don't pay attention)
- amazing Devotion and dual-class system, super varied, allowing many different playstyles
- respec-ing is basically free, the game encourages you to try many different ways to play the same character
- killing enemies feels rewarding (nice effects etc., and loot, lots of loot!)
- 4 difficulties (2 for the first playthrough, then 2 others for additional playthrough like in Diablo 2)
- you literally need 2 min to start the game and get to the monster smashing action, no ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t (esp. nice when you want to play for a short time)

- sometimes it's a bit "too" dark (you may want to adjust your screen lighting)

I love everything about Grim Dawn. The style, the game play, the story. Nothing about this game has been dissapointing. I think they did pretty well balancing the game and is something thats fun with or without other people to play with. Highly recommend.

Bought this game on sale and it's amazing.. totaly worht the price. So here are my pros and cons:
- maps are just HUGE exploring them takes time
- if you played Titanquest you will enjoy this to :)
- you can combine classes
- you can combine skills with the 'god powers'
- ther's a LOT of contetn
- some equipemnt offers usable and passive skills to..
- i like the post apo tuch + magick and hordes of nasty creatures
- you can shoot guns :D
- i enjoy the combat , you rush with the 2h-sword into the enemy horde casting lighting bolts all over the place and enjoy the flying body parts all over the area :)
- i like the graphics , the developers did a nice job creating post apo environment + the little details ... love it
- you can craft stuff
- you can upgrade your base of operations doing quests and helping the survivors
- you can play this olnine
- there are some map glitches like geting stuck in the middle of the stairs for no reason
- i do not like the animated avatars in conversations they are terrible, would look better if they were just drawn
- the enormous maps + clicking all over makes my hand hurt :P
- due to the enormous maps i don't like the diablo like save system implemented here
- the bounty questst are kinda boring and do not offer anything special atm.

When Diablo 3 dreams at night, it dreams it was Grim Dawn. Best Diablo esq hack and slash made since the original easily so much fun such a large map to explore interesting meaningful spec's and itemization. Just a really really good game imo.
