Grim Dawn: Ashes of Malmouth is an expansion to PC action-RPG Grim Dawn from 2016. Both the core game and the expansion are the work of independent studio Crate Entertainment. It isn’t a standalone expansion, meaning it requires core version of the game.

Plot

The expansion finally allows heroes to launch assault on Aetherials, a faction from another world, and its grotesque creation that inhabit ruins of the abandoned town Malmouth. The attack is supported by Black Legion and Inquisitor Creed.

Game mechanics

As far as gameplay goes, Ashes of Malmouth for PC doesn’t change basic mechanics of Grim Dawn, focusing instead on simply offering an additional content. Players still get a classic action-RPG title that focuses on exploration, character development, fulfilling quests and most importantly using very arcade combat systems in battles.

{PLAT}’s Grim Dawn: Ashes of Malmouth adds two more chapters to the story campaign, during which the heroes will venture to wild and dangerous area known as Ugdenbog and titular fallen city of Malmouth. DLC also introduces two additional hero classes: an Inquisitor equipped with two pistols and a Necromancer wielding a scythe and using dark magic.

Aside from that, the add-on introduces over three hundred items and fourteen star constellations, which offer a variety of bonuses to the heroes’ statistics. Those will be useful during encounters with more than forty new bosses and mini-bosses, as will be hero’s development cap increased to 100th level.

Technical aspects

Ashes of Malmouth offers similar performance as base version of Grim Dawn for PC and uses the same visual engine, which is an upgraded version of the technology used in Titan Quest.
