It’s been a long road for Crate Entertainment’s Grim Dawn, but after years of loving development, polish and a stint in Early Access, the game has hit the massive milestone of one million copies sold, according to the studio.
The announcement comes via a post on the game’s official forums, which also contains the news that Grim Dawn has been discounted by 50 per cent “in celebration”, though only for direct purchase and the Humble Store.
There’s also numbers for the game’s first DLC, Crucible, which is sitting pretty on 200,000 copies, as well as a heartfelt message from Crate CEO and lead designer Arthur Bruno:
Looking back, I think the only thing that kept me going on the bad days, was the responsibility I felt to see it through, for the people who had invested time in the project and those who contributed money early on through our website. Even with that drive to see it through, no matter my doubts, the later support of thousands more backers on Kickstarter and Early Access, validated what we were doing and gave us a real shot at making the dream a reality.
It sounds like the journey has just begun for Grim Dawn, if it follows in the successful footsteps of Path of Exile and Diablo III. Honestly, you can never have too many action RPGs.
