Definitive Edition Of A Grim Dawn Hits Xbox Platforms

​​​​​​​Exclusive Xbox edition of acclaimed RPG is go!

A cool eight years after Grim Dawn launched, Crate Entertainment have released the Definitive Edition exclusively on Xbox platforms. Damn straight it better be definitive after eight goddamned years!

But what makes it definitive? Well, the Xbox take includes all content and DLC already released on Steam since 2013 and features enhancements from the Ashes of Malmouth and Forgotten Gods expansions, as well as Crucible DLC! Yeah! Pretty definitive then.

What’s This Game All About Anyway?

There’s the million-dollar question. And here’s the million-dollar answer.

A Grim Dawn is set in a dark fantasy world where humanity is fighting for survival. Okay. So far, so so. But stick with me. The game offers nine classes and literally thousands of items to loot as you adventure across the oodles of content bundled in this definitive Xbox edition. Of the nine classes, you can utilise two to combine to create something relatively unique to fit your playing style. Pretty neat yeah.

You can form alliances with various factions as you wage war across the battlefields, but enough waffling, here are some bite-size key features for your eyes:

Key Features

  • Dual Class – Combine any of nine distinct classes with over 25 skills and modifiers per class. Choose from: Soldier, Demolitionist, Occultist, Nightblade, Arcanist, Shaman, Inquisitor, Necromancer, and Oathkeeper.
  • Collect hundreds of Items – Common, magical, rare, epic, and legendary classes of loot. Plus over 20,000 possible magical affix combinations and over 200 rare affixes. Alter your class skills with hundreds of equipment modifiers.
  • Quests with Choice and Consequence – You will face tough decisions that leave significant impacts upon the world. Strangers on the road, desperate families, and even entire villages may live or perish based on your actions. Currently, over 180 quests with 200+ lore notes to be collected.
  • Friendly and Enemy Factions – Earn favor with human factions to unlock additional quest lines, vendor discounts, and special faction-based items and augments. Some neutral factions can be turned into allies but aiding one will make the enemy of another. Hostile factions will remember your deeds and deepen their hatred of you, sending out large packs and elite heroes to hunt you down.
  • Devotion – An additional layer of skill customization allows you to acquire bonuses and powerful secondary effects for your class skills. These are unlocked from a giant constellation map with points acquired by finding and restoring destroyed or corrupted shrines hidden throughout the world.
  • Rebuild the World – Help human enclaves survive and flourish by securing vital necessities, rebuilding structures, and rescuing survivors who can then lend their services to your cause.
  • Transform Your Appearance  An Illusionist Service NPC enables you to transform the appearance of your equipment and customize your ideal look! Draw upon every item in your collection across all characters!
  • 4 Person Multiplayer – Connect with Friends or make new allies in glorious multiplayer. Multiplayer encounters will put your teamwork to the ultimate challenge.
  • Fast-paced Visceral Combat – Enemy blood spatters, ragdoll physics, and satisfying enemy death effects. Smash in doors and fight house to house, leaving a path of demolished furniture in your wake.
  • Rotatable Camera – If you choose to survey the full beauty of the world and always fight from the most optimal angle. Levels are still designed so that players are not forced to rotate the camera; it is purely optional.
  • Rogue-Like Dungeons – Descend into special locked challenge dungeons that require a rare crafted key, where enemy levels increase as you progress and player teleport is disabled. There is no way out except to complete the dungeon or die trying.
  • Enter the Shattered Realm  an alternate game mode will have you face off against Cairn’s foes in ever more challenging shards of an unstable reality. Earn unique rewards and mountains of loot!
