Grim Dawn: Definitive Edition Dev Warns Of 'Misleading' Reports As The Game Launches On Xbox

The popular PC ARPG Grim Dawn launched earlier today on Xbox in the form of Grim Dawn: Definitive Edition, and reports have been somewhat mixed so far, with some suggesting the port is great, and a small few suggesting it isn't.

Those who have complaints have primarily cited the game's low 1080p, 30fps target, graphics running at supposedly "medium" settings, and suggestions that the frame rate is uncapped on Xbox Series X when it doesn't appear to be.

In response, a developer at the company has taken to Reddit to refute some of those suggestions:

"The game runs on High settings, or higher. We openly said the game targets 1080p at 30fps, so if someone is going to try to scare people off because it does exactly what was advertised, I’m not sure what to say to that."

"I was informed that the fps is unlocked, and I'll trust the word of our programmer on that. I can't verify for myself what that means in practice as I don't have a Series X so I'm not going to make outlandish claims.

That said, we’ve already committed to squeezing out more from the Series S/X consoles when we have a dev kit. I wish we had the pull of a AAA studio to get one of those years ago, but we do not. We are on the waiting list to receive ONE dev kit, which will hopefully happen sooner rather than later."

The developer also went on to acknowledge that there have been some valid concerns about the text being too small to read in the Xbox version, which he says is "definitely on our radar and we hope to have a solution soon."

As for everything else though, he's keen to ensure that people don't fall prey to "misleading information":

"If you have any doubts about our work, you can simply scroll through 5 years of Grim Dawn updates to see where we stand on our commitment to our products.

But please don't base your purchase decision off of misleading information."

If you want to grab Grim Dawn: Definitive Edition for yourself, it's available right now from the Microsoft Store for £45.99 / $54.99, containing the base Grim Dawn experience and "two sprawling expansion packs."
