Titan Quest Gets New Expansion More Than a Decade after Original Release
To those who remember the glory days of ARPGs back in the early to mid 2000s, Titan Quest served as one of the only titles to live up to the steep standards Blizzard’s Diablo 2 established. Over a decade later, the game has aged phenomenally, especially since it was re-released last year as the Anniversary Edition. This combined the base game and it’s Immortal Throne expansion, plus brand new bug fixes, balance changes and continued support. Now, the legendary ARPGs revival is in full swing as it launches a brand new expansion nobody even knew was coming.
Aptly called Ragnarok, the new expansion takes players into the world of Norse mythology featuring the Celts, the Northmen and the Asgardian gods. It will add a fifth new act that promises to be the biggest one to date. Players will be facing new enemies and bosses as you wreak havoc in Northern Europe. Check out the expansion’s trailer below.
A new mastery has also been added, making it a total of 10 base masteries and 45 combinations. The new mastery let’s you wield the power of a Runemaster, a battlemage adept at using both spells and weapons. The maximum level has also been raised to 85 with a revised experience curve.
As expected, new weapons and gear have also been added. Players who revisit previous acts will also be able to find new items and secrets. Character customization has also been improved with more regional styles and color dyes, and finally the option to wear pants.
The new expansion will also bring technical improvements to the game with new shaders and graphical effects, and improvements on ragdoll physics, UI, control customization and modding tools.
Ragnarok will require Titan Quest Anniversary Edition and is not compatible with the older/physical versions of the game. The expansion is out now on Steam.
