Grim Dawn: Ashes of Malmouth official artwork for the Necromancer

If you've completed everything Grim Dawn has to offer, you'll be glad to hear that there is a brand new expansion just around the corner. The rather ominously-sounding Ashes of Malmouth will expand the basic map size and content by around 50%, as well as offer some of the greatest challenges in Grim Dawn's history.

The level cap will be increase to 100 while the Devotion cap will go up to 55, and there will also be two new Masteries to mess around with: the Inquisitor and Necromancer. As with all of the other Masteries, these two can be combined with the original ones in order to create some rather unique and interesting character. And speaking of uniqueness, Ashes of Malmouth will bring with it a brand-new Illusionist NPC that allows you to customize your appearance with item skins you've collected across all of your characters. Its a tiny little change, but its an important one. After all, nobody wants to go out slaying demons looking like a clown!

There will also be two new story chapters to plunge into, a whole bunch of new environments to explore, four new factions to befriend or wage war against, tons of new items and skill modifiers, new bosses and "superbosses", and the list goes on for quite a while. If you're interested in all of the details you'll find what you're looking for over at the official website.

The Ashes of Malmouth expansion will be coming next week, on October 11th, at a $18 price tag. While you puzzle over whether its worth the asking price or not, allow me to leave you with the recent gameplay trailer. Its not very long, but it should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Ashes of Malmouth. Enjoy!
