Path of Exile expansion The Awakening launches 10th July
Path of Exile - an extremely rather good Diablo-style PC game - gets an expansion on 10th July called The Awakening. The plan should be to unlock the information at 1pm PDT, that is 9pm UK time.
The Awakening adds a new Act for the game, Act Four, which opens the Highgate Mine and all sorts of its evil within. This includes a face-off with something dubbed Nightmare, and what looks like a jaunt within the belly from the Beast.
In addition, the development bestows additional skills, jewels, exotic items and challenge leagues. Plus, it rebalances the entirety of POE Currency in the very beginning, and overhauls the game's program. There's a whole expansion mini-site with an increase of detail.
Path of Exile became available in 2013. It's darker in tone than Diablo and its particular customisation more open and complex, which has a skill tree dizzying in scope. And it is free-to-play, but one of best examples on the model we've seen. "It's free-to-play done well and not in any way invasive," wrote Paul Dean in this review. "I can tell I've had many, long hours of fun within a game that still has a lot more to show me and which many of us, at the moment, can enjoy for nothing whatsoever. We're being spoiled."
