Grim Dawn Expansion and Physical Goods
Today I bring tidings of the Grim Dawn expansion "Ashes of Malmouth" and a sneak peak at the boxed copy and extras.
Ashes of Malmouth will be released on Oct 11th at 1pm EST. I'm very excited to hear people's reactions as I believe (and this seems supported by tester feedback) that we really hit a new quality level on the content for Ashes of Malmouth. I'm really pleased with the way the environments and flow of the story turned out and I think you all will be too. The Inquisitor and Necromancer also turned out to be really fun and make great additions, with all the new mastery combinations they bring.
We're working on getting expansion backer keys set up on Humble to go live for the 11th.
As for physical goods - we mentioned previously that we'd decided to add some extra items to the boxed copy. We settled on a patch, Devil's Crossing faction themed keychain and a Black Legion bottle opener. We had to go through some iterations on the items as the colors were off on the proofs and the bottle opener didn't work as well as I thought it should. I just got the latest versions, which look good, plus the proofs for the game boxes. Seeing them in person, I think the game boxes look smaller than I'd like; so we might up the size but otherwise everything will soon be ready to run the full production and ship out.
That leaves the last item, which is the Crate Story. This I've been chipping away at but it was hard to find much time for between Grim Dawn and Ashes of Malmouth. With the expansion finally complete, finishing the story is my next priority and I plan to set aside time this month to wrap it up.
Here's a sneak peak at the current run of the goods (note that the chain is missing from the keychain because my kids were using it as a weapon) :
