For some players, enjoying the original game itself is only the first step on a larger journey that leads to modifications galore. Grim Dawn is preparing to open the post-apocalyptic ARPG up to modders when it unveils its suite of tools this week to the community.
The modding tools that players will get to use for Grim Dawn will be the same that the developers used to create the game, so expect them to be both robust and daunting. “This grants players vast opportunities to create their own content, items, classes and even entire worlds. Advanced users can take advantage of Lua support to script complex gameplay events and create entirely new types of content not seen in the base game,” the studio said.
The team went into some of the finer points of the coming mod tools, including various ways that they can be used. With the tools, fans could conceivably turn the game into a tower defense title, whip up new factions, add in custom music, and more.
