Decade-old multiplayer ARPG Titan Quest drops ‘Ragnarok’ expansion

So here’s a happy surprise: THQ Nordic just launched an expansion for Titan Quest, the multiplayer-optional ARPG that’s been rattling around on hard drives for over 10 years now. Not even terrible timing since there are about to be a lot of homeless ARPG fans, and hey, this game even has a subtle Thor tie-in!

Dubbed Ragnarok, the expansion is $14.99 (a discount from its regular $19.99 price), and it boasts a Norse-mythology-themed fifth act with concomitant storylines and quests, new physics and graphics enhancements, a new mastery (Runemaster) to combine with the existing ones for a total of 45 new character templates, a new level cap of 85, new gear, and critically, PANTS.

You’ll need to to own the anniversary edition of the game to run this expansion, but that shouldn’t be a problem for fans, as THQ granted existing owners on Steam access to the anniversary edition for free last year. Maybe we should’ve seen this coming!

Not only has a decade-old Titan Quest been selling since Nordic picked up the IP (on top of them supporting it with patches), it has been selling well enough to create another expansion. Then we have Grim Dawn doing well enough that Crate is still kicking out content; an expansion just released, a big patch dropped this week, and another big update is in the works.

I love the irony of a game THQ chose to shelve outlasting the publisher that chose to shelve it, and a developer getting back up and outliving the publisher that knocked them down. Props to Nordic and Crate.

Nordic should have just kept their name, they’re doing too much good to stain themselves with the THQ label.

And bought! This was so unexpected. I love this game. I am still sad about the Marbel heroes news. I knew it was in trouble but I didn’t expect it to sunset this year

I think the most awesome part about the THQ bankruptcy is watching Nordic buy up all of their stagnant properties and actually do something with them.

Titan Quest was great. Loved the atmosphere – can’t say the same about Diablo 3. TQ still burns brightly in my mind and D3 has long faded.

Whle this is cool, I own game on GoG, and currently the expansion is only on Steam. I’ll buy this once it arrives on GoG (just as well – I’m busy with West of Loathing for now anyway).

Awesome. I loved Titan Quest.

I hope people also support the original developers who are working on Grim Dawn as well.

I was playing Grim Dawn this morning as they have just put out a largish QoL patch today too.

Not even a nano-second delay before hitting the buy key.

Great job, THQ Nordic.

Fastest impulse buy I have had in a while…

Instant buy.

Aside from the fact that I loved Titan Quest (just played the anni version a month ago), im buying it just to prove how wrong companies like Microsoft are when they shut down games/studios that they think arent something that can bring in money anymore.

This is great to see even if TQ was my least favorite of the higher profile Diablo 2 “clones”.

Geez I wonder if the Blizzard Diablo 3 devs feel any shame that even Titan Quest is putting out more content updates than they are hehe :p
