Following the release last week of new character shots, NIS has sent out a new batch of screens showing the more violent side of dungeon-crawling. The latest media shows the combat system in action, including party members’ skills and some of the enemies. It was also announced that free post-launch DLC will be available for the first month after release, with players able to augment their party with new recruits from a Disgaea-themed character pack off PSN. Five characters are set to answer the call to arms: Etna, Flonne, Sicily, Asagi, and of course, an unlucky Prinny.
Crate Entertainment’s action-RPG Grim Dawn has been updated on Steam Early Access to include the second act, Old Arkovia. The addition features an estimated 10-plus hours of gameplay, which includes a host of new material: 10 enemy types, 23 bosses, 35 character levels, 106 items, and a region. Players must choose carefully in how to proceed in Act II, as there is now a greater emphasis on consequences and innocent lives will be caught between their party and a new enemy, the Four Hills gang.
