GamesCo has announced that its forthcoming online survival title Grimm: Dark Legacy is now open for closed beta registration.
Set several hundred years before the current NBC TV series, Grimm: Dark Legacy will explore the rich back-story of the Grimms and their many foes. The game will see players traveling through the Old World meeting increasingly tougher challenges as well as teaming up with other players to survive the Wesen onslaught. The title is licensed by the NBCUniversal Brand Development Group and is currently under development by Norwegian developer Artplant (Battlestar Galactica Online).
Mixing combat and survival gameplay, Grimm: Dark Legacy starts players off as inexperienced hunters with little knowledge or weapons. Over time, players must explore the different regions of the world, completing tasks and foraging for potions and raw materials so that they can grow in confidence and power, making the transformation from the hunted into the hunter. Players who gather the right combination of items can then craft bombs, traps, and weapons to help them boost their stats as well as hunt and dispatch their foes.

A core component of Grimm: Dark Legacy’s gameplay will be the comprehensive detection system that players use to track & hunt Wesen. Smells, noise, and tracks can all be detected and followed, but the tables can be turned because Wesen use the same system to hunt and kill players. Grimm Hunters will need to employ their skills of detection and evasion to search for Wesen signs while masking their own, helping them gain the upper hand.
GamesCo invites all and any intrepid Wesen hunters to sign-up for the closed beta at the official Grimm: Dark Legacy website. Grimm: Dark Legacy will launch on PC in late 2016.
