Not every game goes to the lengths of giving your character a backstory that starts before you log in, but then again, not every game is Grim Dawn. No matter what combat path they take, players will all start out the same: as a recently hanged person who was possessed by a malevolent force. Once that force fled, the player character was cut down and allowed a second chance at life, although it’s an unusual life now that the player can communicate with the etheral plane.
Grim Dawn is a multiplayer action-RPG by the makers of Titan Quest and is slated to launch soon. You can check out the new story trailer after the break.
