The team will be taking time to "iterate and evolve" the core game play to deliver the experience that players are looking for.

In a new interview at Waypoint (via Eurogamer), former BioWare developer Manveer Heir spills the beans on EA's direction with regard to triple A single-player games.

Grim Dawn is an action RPG set in a Victorian-inspired world where war has broken out and driven humanity almost to extinction. Humans aren't faring well in the world of Cairn, where one side wants to consume them and the other wants to annihilate them. Fortunately, this is where you, the player, come in, making decisions in quests that impact the world and might change its fate.

The game is focused around fast-paced action, and lots of loot. Diablo players and those familiar with ARPGs will find themselves at home here. You'll build your team, choose your skills, and fight over 100 hero monsters and more in the quest for a solution and hundreds of items to collect.

FEATURES

  • Dual Class and Customization | Choose from five skill classes (Soldier, Nightblade, Arcanist, Occultist, and Demolitionist), each with branching skill trees to unlock.
  • Meaningful Choices | Players will have to decide the fate of the world through multiple decisions that impact the game and conflict.
  • Loot, Loot, and More Loot | With hundreds of items to collect, as well as item recipes for crafting, there are many ways to get ahead in the game and fill your pockets many times over.
