The following 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 if you happen to’re a long-time Path of Exile participant, there’s one thing else that may 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 house owners for giant rewards. Via intelligent use of explosives, gamers carve out a strategic path to unearth these misplaced treasures. In fact, you’re going to must battle loads of nasty foes alongside the best way. You’ll be able to commerce these assets with new distributors that allow you to haggle for bargains and offers.
A large number of latest talent gems carry new playstyles to Expedition and the higher recreation, probably the most attention-grabbing 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 talent lets gamers make one large minion that handles every part. Need to play with different minions too? Nicely, the reaper sort of… eats them. In order that’s going to be onerous. Nonetheless, as a pet participant, I can’t wait to present this one a strive.
Flasks can now be modified with new assets that add logic that instructions them to be auto-used, as a substitute of forcing gamers to blast their fingers (and invite carpal tunnel syndrome) on their hotkeys 1000’s of instances a session. As an illustration, you may set modifiers on a flask to set off underneath a certain quantity of well being or when a standing state is triggered. As somebody who has had ulnar nerve points up to now as a consequence of my repeated Sinister Strike spam in World of Warcraft, this replace has been a very long time coming and is lowkey one of the best 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 outdoors of the core Path of Exile, so gamers’ talent bushes and choices will look fairly totally different. Sure, there will likely be spectator mode, leaderboards, and extra.
