Thirteen-year-old ARPG Titan Quest dropped its third expansion, Atlantis, this week

It’s not really that surprising when an old MMORPG releases an expansion, but it’s not exactly common in the world of ARPGs, which is why Titan Quest’s Atlantis expansion, which dropped this week, is so exciting, even knowing it’s merely multiplayer-optional (although let me tell you, multiplayer for this is amazing). I’ve got such a soft spot for this game; I sunk way too many hours into it (and into modding it!) back in the day.

“Action-RPG Titan Quest is back with its third expansion: Atlantis! The expansion comes with a brand new and epic story line, leading the players through the most mysterious of all cities. Explore new environments or dive into a vast amount of added quests in the well-known areas of the base game. Heroes can master new skills and fight with new items. The expansion also adds some quality of life and general improvements.”

The DLC clocks in at $14.99 (though it’s on Steam for $13.49 right now). The downside for anybody reading who for some reason doesn’t already own it (shame!!) is that you’ll need to pick up the base game plus Immortal Throne (the anniversary edition) to play it. The upside is that it’s on sale for four bucks, so you got this. There’s a bundle with the base game and all three of its expansions for just over 20 bucks too, which basically makes the base game free during this sale.

I want to like Titan Quest so badly, but I’m really struggling getting into it. :(

Same! I don’t get why Bree is so into it! I tried playing it on her recommendation, and it seems so intensely repetitive. Kill a bunch of things until your bags fill, go back to town to sell it all, repeat. There didn’t seem to be anything more to it, except some very vaguely interesting character crafting. There’s very little story, no housing, no alternate advancement, no gameplay other than just smashing more stuff in the face. What am I missing?

It looks like Evil Lyn needs to oil up her armor and sharpen her blades once again, for there are new souls to consume (War/Spirit).

I’m hoping this drops on GoG, where I own the Anniversary Editon and Ragnarok. I love this thoroughly underrated game.

Will for sure be buying this but probably not right away as I have a lot on my gaming plate as it is. Still I really appreciate that a game is so old is being supported with new content, good stuff.

THQ Nordic (PR blunders not withstanding) have done such a good job taking care of the franchises it acquired. This and Darksiders are the real standouts, and I’m glad the IPs went to a company that’s actually doing something with them.

I am really glad to see Darksiders was continued, but I have read that they ditched the puzzle aspect of the previous games. Still good to see something done with it, as you say. Now to see if they have plans for Amalur.

I’d argue that SpellForce 3 also worked out well and, unlike Darksiders 3, exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to Soul Harvest later in the year.
