Acclaimed ARPG 'Grim Dawn' announced for Xbox One

Grim Dawn is a Diablo III-like action role-playing game (ARPG) which drops players into an apocalyptic fantasy world where humanity is on the brink of extinction. Iron is valued above gold and trust is hard to earn.

The game garnered a lot of praise when it launched in early 2016, and console gamers have been patiently waiting for a port since then. Grim Dawn is known for its dual class system which lets you combine six distinct classes and over two dozen skills. You can play as an ordinary solider or venture into the supernatural with the occultist, shaman or arcanist.

Today, Crate Entertainment announced the Forgotten Gods expansion, but also confirmed that the team was working on an Xbox One port. A post on the studio's website stated the following.

It's no secret by now that we are working on an Xbox One port of the game, which is coming posthaste and big news in itself, but that's actually not what we're here to talk about today.

There have been rumors floating around about an Xbox One port ever since the game launched, but this is the first time we've received proper confirmation. Hopefully the game will be a polished experience even on the console and support Xbox One X. Experiences like Path of Exile run at native 4K 60 FPS on Microsoft's new machine so hopefully Grim Dawn will also push out similar visuals.

Aside from the ability to combine skills, the game features legendary loot, choice-driven gameplay, four-player multiplayer, and lots of factions. If you like such games, be sure to give it a shot on PC or Xbox One. Hopefully the wait for an Xbox One port won't be that long. We'll keep you updated as soon as Crate Entertainment announces more details.
