Grim Dawn: Update Adds UI Scaling Option on Xbox

Developer Crate Entertainment released the Xbox version of Grim Dawn earlier this month. A new update is available that introduces a UI scaling option on the said console. Update also adds various improvements across all platforms.

Aside from UI scaling on Xbox, the devs added more options in the settings menu to improve the game’s graphics and performance, including anti-aliasing, depth of field, ambient occlusion, target framerate, and unlocked framerate.

Some monster infrequents - rare-quality equipment dropped by specific monsters - have been adjusted. For instance, the Bonespike has its duration modifier removed for Ravenous Earth. So, the item no longer increases the duration of the skill.

Another notable change is the Ultos’ Tempest Legendary set has its 33 lightning damage to Savagery removed. If you’re using a lightning build, you may want to shift to Primal Strike. Lightning damage bonuses for that skill remain supported by the legendary set.
