We just found out that Grim Dawn is going to be a Steam game (99,999% sure). What is this game you ask? Grim Dawn is an action role-playing game intended for digital distribution on the PC. It is being developed by veterans of Iron Lore Entertainment, the makers of Titan Quest. Grim Dawn is being built with Crate’s own improved version of the Iron Lore engine and toolset; the same technology used to create Titan Quest. As a spiritual successor, Grim Dawn will attempt to better perfect the magical formula of exploration, character advancement, and loot collection pioneered by Diablo.
We’ve contacted the game designers and here’s what they told us:
We are currently planning to sell the game through Steam and have actually already started the integration. We are also planning to have multiplayer similar to Titan Quest (we will probably allow 4-6 additional players to join a game) –
Crate Entertainment, LLC
You can find out more about the game by going here. You will probably hear more about this title very soon! Oh, and by the way, you can already pre-order the game and participate in alpha and early beta programs and I am pretty sure that after you pre-purchase it, and it will eventually come out on Steam, Crate Entertainement will somehow add the game to your Steam account.
Update: And yes, we did ask about fair pricing around the world (on Steam) but didn’t get any reply yet.
