Path of Exile’s Fall of Oriath expansion arrives August 4

Path of Exile’s Fall of Oriath expansion finally has a formal launch date: August 4th. The expansion adds literally new everything, from new skills and bosses to new locations, plus the new pantheon system, five new acts, and the difficulty level system. Over in the beta, the devs are working hard on the Labyrinth, maps, and flask balancing with just a couple weeks to go. The aborted microtransaction system is also slated for this coming Friday.

Just getting caught up? Don’t miss our February preview and reveal, our steam and hands-on with the beta, and our E3 interview on the expansion, plus the new images and trailer below!

Yeah lol, 5 hour average session and all that. I’m not even surprised, I remember very well how much I used to play. It’s also one of the reasons I won’t be playing anymore. I know that if I do, I’ll end up playing much more than I should.

This seems a little premature. Having played the beta, some things are indeed ready, and others a clearly not. Namely act 6-7-8, are largely just rehashes of previous content with a small smattering of new enemies and areas, and new bosses.
While recycling old areas isn’t necessarily a problem, recycling old enemies is. As there is a noticeable drop in difficulty from act 5, as the enemies lack skills often times, and have basic AI at best.
It’s still a step up from literally repeating content on a higher difficulty, but it’s still not great.

And there is still two more acts unaccounted for.
Two weeks is not a lot of time, and there honestly looks like there is just too much work left unfinished.

Been looking forward to this all year. It has been testing my resolve a little because I could go play the beta as I have access but I don’t do beta even for something I am really excited for. The wait is nearly over and I am sure it will be more than worth it :-)
