Grim Dawn Expansion “Ashes of Malmouth” Announced
A huge new expansion for the gritty Victorian ARPG Grim Dawn his finally had its release date announced. Ashes of Malmouth adds new content equal to 50% the size of the base game. Two new zones, 300+ unique items and an increase in level cap up to 100 are all being added.
But that’s not all! We’re getting additions to the Constellation system that add 14 new nodes, as well as two new Master classes. The two new zones contain 40 new bosses and Mini-bosses.
Grim Dawn: Ashes of Malmouth will sell for $18 on Steam, GOG, and Humble (where the full game is currently on sale for $10, by the way), and is free for owners of the Loyalist Edition of the game. The expansion will be out later this month, on October 11.
Below you can find a trailer and some gameplay footage for the new expansion, as well as a list of all the major new features.
