Crate Entertainment recently announced plans for a new action RPG called Grim Dawn. The game places the player in the world of Cairn; where a once proud empire has crumbled into total chaos. A gruesome war has brought two colliding otherworldy forces together: one uses human bodies as a source of their power, the other wishes to destroy the human race before they can be utilized as a weapon. Very few humans remain, holed up in small communities across the region. A few of these survivors have discovered new abilities after having confrontation with the supernatural beasts that roam the land. In a desperate attempt to save the remainder of humanity they begin to use these powers to their advantage.
