Default Happy Birthday to Grim Dawn!

Can’t believe it’s been a year already, but it’s true! This time in 2016, Grim Dawn was feature and content complete, released on Humble, GoG and Steam as a finished product. Thanks in part to the tremendous support and feedback from our earliest backers, our Kickstarter backers and those who joined us in Steam’s Early Access, Grim Dawn became a critically-acclaimed financial success with a 93% positive rating on Steam and an 83% reviewer rating on Metacritic. To this date, Grim Dawn has sold over 900,000 copies, a count that’s steadily rising every day.

And to commemorate this special occasion, you can enjoy a week-long 50%-off sale right here on our website!

But of course, the release was hardly the end of the line. Since then, we’ve had 8 free content updates and patches; we released the Crucible DLC, which was a Kickstarter stretch goal funded entirely by the generosity of our backers; and we started work on Grim Dawn’s first expansion.

To say that Grim Dawn has come far since its humble beginnings would be an understatement. The future is looking just as bright with the steadily growing scope of the expansion that will improve upon the already massive amount of content Grim Dawn offers:
  • The next epic chapter of humanity’s struggle against the Aetherial and Chthonian invaders.
  • Two New Masteries! Including the already announced Inquisitor!
  • A level cap increase to 100!
  • The Illusion System to transform your gear’s appearance!
  • Hundreds of new items!
  • And more…

From everybody here at Crate Entertainment, we’d like to thank you for being on this journey with us and hope that you are as excited as we are for what’s still to come! And when we look back on this date another year from now, Grim Dawn will have become even more massive!

I went to check the forums at just the right time, eh?

For some reason, I feel like the game has been out for much longer than that.

Happy birthday!

Dear Crate Entertainment, I'd like to thank you for everything you've done till now, for all your hard work. Even though I sometimes disagree with your game design decisions, and probably wasn't always as respectful as I should had been, I deeply appreciate the amount of effort you put in Grim Dawn, as well as the way you interact with this community. Thank you, and keep up the good work!
Howdy! Ulgrim, are you there? It's me, your best friend!

Praise the Eldritch Sun! \[T]/
