Path of Exile: The Awakening eyes July 10 release

Path of Exile’s next big content update, The Awakening, is coming soon… but how soon? The team said that it’s getting close to nailing down an official release date but that it should be happening in the earlier part of July.

“You should expect to see a proper trailer, announcement of the challenge leagues, and a content update for The Awakening’s website sometime late next week,” Grinding Gear Games posted. “This will also include a countdown to the final release date (which is probably sometime around July 10, between you and me).”

The team said that the “core content” for the update is ready and that it expects no problems between now and launch with releasing it. It also confirmed that several Act Four boss fights will be coming to the update’s beta before too long.

Path of Exile looks to be doing well lately; check out our recent interview with the title’s producer for more insight into the game’s development!

Note that, July 10 is a Friday. It will probably be pushed back the following week for polishing. And its not

Yeah, 
“As you know, part of Act Four (the three areas after Kaom/Daresso, which
include a whole lot of boss fights) has been excluded from the Beta so
far. I’d like to confirm that we are planning to include it in the Beta.
We expect to release it around a week before the final release. We’re handling most of the testing of this content internally, but do
want to get your feedback on its balance prior to release. While game
systems like the Jewel system needed extensive testing over several
months, areas and boss fights are much easier to get public feedback on
over a few days. This also prevents player burnout on that new content
:)”

Veldan  Are you sure they will release it?  Chris said yesterday he wants to package the final release parts as a marketing campaign.  It almost sounded like he wanted some spoiler free moments in the final release.

I’m part of the beta but never played past early levels.

I hope there won’t be another beta wipe when they introduce the final bits of content…
