Happy Birthday to Grim Dawn!




Can’t believe it’s been a year already, but it’s true! This time in 2016, Grim Dawn was feature and content complete, released on Humble, GoG and Steam as a finished product. Thanks in part to the tremendous support and feedback from our earliest backers, our Kickstarter backers and those who joined us in Steam’s Early Access, Grim Dawn became a critically-acclaimed financial success with a 93% positive rating on Steam and an 83% reviewer rating on Metacritic. To this date, Grim Dawn has sold over 900,000 copies, a count that’s steadily rising every day.

And to commemorate this special occasion, you can enjoy a week-long 50%-off sale on our website!

But of course, the release was hardly the end of the line. Since then, we’ve had 8 free content updates and patches; we released the Crucible DLC, which was a Kickstarter stretch goal funded entirely by the generosity of our backers; and we started work on Grim Dawn’s first expansion.

To say that Grim Dawn has come far since its humble beginnings would be an understatement. The future is looking just as bright with the steadily growing scope of the expansion that will improve upon the already massive amount of content Grim Dawn offers:

  • The next epic chapter of humanity’s struggle against the Aetherial and Chthonian invaders.
  • Two New Masteries! Including the already announced Inquisitor!
  • A level cap increase to 100!
  • The Illusion System to transform your gear’s appearance!
  • Hundreds of new items!
  • And more…

From everybody here at Crate Entertainment, we’d like to thank you for being on this journey with us and hope that you are as excited as we are for what’s still to come! And when we look back on this date another year from now, Grim Dawn will have become even more massive!

“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.
