Default Grim Misadventure #126: Main Views

Grim Misadventures here with the latest peek into the upcoming Grim Dawn expansion.

Its arrival is fast approaching now as we near content complete and hit the grinder on polish and bug fixing. Somewhere along the way we might try to remember what the sun looked like too.

Today’s foray into development is artistically minded. First, with a very exciting update to our main menu!

There your characters will stand, among the foliage of Ugdenbog, with the ruined city of Malmouth ominously looming in the background. We feel it summarizes the expansion’s two new acts exquisitely.

One of the final stages of development, besides tuning and bug fixes of course, is the art department swooping in and cleaning up all the messes the designers left in their wake. This involves lots and lots of items of course. It’s an exciting time to open up our Equipment Test World daily and seeing all of the new item art, which is made all the more awesome with the introduction of Illusions. Today we have a preview of some of the Legendary equipment that has escaped the art department in recent weeks:

As always, note that item skills are scaled to player stats and do not reflect base values.

The Cortosian Scrolls
"The scrolls are lined with spells and techniques written down by generations of Cortosian Arcanists."

Guardian of Death’s Gates
"Rumored to have once been wielded by Uroboruuk himself, this weapon 's edge traps souls with the slightest touch."

Maw of the Damned
"Forever damned are those that partake of the Wendigo's gift."

Stormweave Armor

With hundreds of new Epic and Legendary items in store for you, in addition to the already vast arsenal from the base game, we are excited to see all of the new builds (and Illusion wardrobes) that you come up with.

Like knowing what is coming up next for Grim Dawn? Check back on 09/18/2017 for the next Grim Misadventure.

Whoa, that main menu looks gorgeous!

Also the Cortosian Scrolls reminds me of those samurai armors that have flags on them.
