Multiplayer ARPG Grim Dawn unveils a December 3 ‘definitive edition’ release on Xbox

Grim Dawn, the single-player/multiplayer ARPG from developer Crate Entertainment, gets a lot of love from readers on our website. Now, they can perhaps spread that love to their Xbox console-playing friends (or their own Xbox systems) as the game is headed to the console on Friday, December 3rd, in a “definitive edition” that bundles the base game with the Ashes of Malmouth expansion, Forgotten Gods expansion, and the Crucible game mode in one package.

“Finally Xbox players will be able to explore the darkest corners of Grim Dawn’s vast, immersive world, where secrets abound and untold terrors lurk. Known for its rewarding itemization, dual class system, choice and consequence questing, factions and rewarding end-game activities, Grim Dawn is sure to entice fans of the genre both new and old.”

If you happen to be asking about the potential for cross-platform play or cross-save features, we direct you to an interview from WCCFTech in 2018 with game designer Kamil Marczewski, who stated that cross-play would not be provided since the game is “primarily a singleplayer experience.” If a lack of cross-play isn’t a deterrent, the Xbox version of Grim Dawn is available for pre-order starting today.

While I am looking forward to this I am disappointed that Crate Entertainment haven’t shown anything from the Xbox version.

All the store promo screenshots / vids are taken from the pc version. Even the videos refer to the original pc version release dates rather than this Xbox release.

After some digging I found some comments from one of the Devs that basically says that the Xbox version is functionally identical to the pc so they didn’t see the need to do any thing else specifically for Xbox.

Oh and something to bare in mind this was made for last gen consoles so is targeting 1080p at 30 FPS. It will work on current gen series consoles via backwards compatibility. Crate have said they don’t have a current gen dev kit so are unable to do anything for current gen at this time but didn’t rule out a future update for current gen if they can get a dev kit.

Me I will still be playing the heck out of this game regardless and I hope there are no major issues with the release.
