What you need to know

  • Titan Quest is a Diablo-like action game from THQ Nordic.
  • It just got an expansion that focuses on Norse mythology.
  • The expansion costs $20, while the base game costs $30.
  • You can purchase Titan Quest through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

Titan Quest is one of my most favorite games. I love the lore and I like that it features mythology from a lot of different regions. The game is from Age of Empires creator Brian Sullivan and Braveheart writer Randall Wallace and is set in Asia, Egypt, and Greece. The mythical Titans have escaped their eternal prison, wreaking havoc upon the Earth. The gods seek a hero who can turn the tide in an epic struggle that will determine the fate of both men and gods.

In this epic quest of good versus evil, players will encounter the greatest villains of Greek mythology, brave the attacks of Cerberus, and hazard the banks of the River Styx. You'll interpret the prophecies of the blind seer Tiresias, fight alongside Agamemnon and Achilles, and use the wiles of Odysseus to conquer this dark new adventure.

Today, Titan Quest received an expansion on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, that's been available on PC for a while now. There's a new level cap, new mastery levels, a new story, and much more. A mysterious threat calls the heroes of Hades to the uncharted lands of northern Europe, where new enemies await and new powers and treasures are waiting to be found.

There's also another expansion, focused on Atlantis, coming soon, but it's unclear when that'll be. That's my favorite one by far so I hope it happens in 2020. The expansion is a little expensive though, it costs $20, but in many ways, it's its own game. For some odd reason, it's not showing up on the Microsoft Store for many, so give it a few hours or a day.

  • It was fun for throwing builds, eventually your attack speed is so high it almost feels like you have an automatic gun. :)
