Grim Dawn recaps 2016, plans first expansion by summer 2017


Grim Dawn’s latest “Grim Misadventures” featurette is a recap of its progress through 2016 in the leadup to its first birthday coming up in February. Crate put out seven content updates last year — which even I’d forgotten about — counting up survival mode, extensive modding tools, the Hidden Path storyline, the Crucible DLC, new legendary gear, the Fall of Valbury roguelike dungeon, supporter upgrades, and tech improvements.

2017 already looks promising for the ARPG, as its first formal expansion is on the way.

Grim Dawn’s first expansion is sure to be a treat. Along with a new chapter of the story, an increased level cap and two new masteries come new Devotion constellations to unveil with an increased Devotion cap, several new features, hundreds of new unique items and monster infrequents [as well as] new dungeons and environments to explore, and dangerous new foes and bosses to conquer.”

As for when exactly that expansion is launching, the devs are still coy, but we have a pretty good idea it’ll be by summer. “We are not quite at a point where we can announce an exact release date, but the current range puts us in Q1/Q2 of 2017,” Crate says.
