The subsequent Path of Exile growth, Expedition, is hitting subsequent Friday on July 23 alongside Path of Exile: Royale. That’s proper, the mode that was as soon as an April Idiot’s joke made actuality is getting much more consideration and actual assets. Whereas the brand new goodies drop on July 23 for PC, console gamers on Xbox and PlayStation should wait till July 28 for the drop. Oh, and in the event you’re a long-time Path of Exile participant, there’s one thing else that can actually excite you about this replace – an overhaul to the flask system.
First, Expedition duties gamers with negotiating with the mysterious Kalguur. Gamers uncover quite a few hidden artifacts that they need to return to their Kalguur homeowners for large rewards. By intelligent use of explosives, gamers carve out a strategic path to unearth these misplaced treasures. In fact, you’re going to need to combat loads of nasty foes alongside the best way. You possibly can commerce these assets with new distributors that allow you to haggle for bargains and offers.
A mess of recent ability gems deliver new playstyles to Expedition and the better sport, probably the most fascinating maybe being a Necromancer gem that lets gamers go “all-in” on a king-size reaper minion. As a substitute of commanding an entourage, this ability lets gamers make one large minion that handles every little thing. Wish to play with different minions too? Properly, the reaper sort of… eats them. In order that’s going to be laborious. Nonetheless, as a pet participant, I can’t wait to provide this one a strive.
Flasks can now be modified with new assets that add logic that instructions them to be auto-used, as an alternative of forcing gamers to blast their fingers (and invite carpal tunnel syndrome) on their hotkeys hundreds of instances a session. As an illustration, you may set modifiers on a flask to set off underneath a specific amount of well being or when a standing state is triggered. As somebody who has had ulnar nerve points previously attributable to my repeated Sinister Strike spam in World of Warcraft, this replace has been a very long time coming and is lowkey the most effective factor about this growth.
Along with all of the growth content material, Path of Exile: Royale is returning as a weekend mode. It’s being utterly rebalanced exterior of the core Path of Exile, so gamers’ ability bushes and choices will look fairly totally different. Sure, there shall be spectator mode, leaderboards, and extra.
