Grim Dawn

Set in a dark fictional world called Cairn loosely based on the Victorian era, where "humanity is on the brink of extinction, iron is valued above gold and trust is hard-earned". The game was originally released in 2016 and had received excellent reviews due to its compelling story, various character classes, and deep gameplay mechanics.

Grim Dawn Definitive Edition will come to Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One on 3 December.


"Icarus was once destined to be a second Earth, but when terraforming collapsed - the air turned toxic and humanity’s hopes of colonizing a new world died. Icarus became a joke, a symbol of humanity reaching for the stars and failing. Yet when xeno-biologists discovered the cause of the failure - exotic matter - new interest was ignited. Valuable beyond reckoning, these ‘exotics’ sparked a gold rush, fueling political tensions on Earth, and bringing prospectors flocking to Icarus." the game description reads.

On the planet, players will accept and complete missions on time, and return safely to the station, or their character's body will be left on the surface. To survive on the surface, players must gather resources like food, water, oxygen, and seek shelter.

Icarus will launch on Steam on 4 December.
