Path of Exile is not a game where you are likely to stand around admiring the scenery very often. That’s not because it’s bad; it’s just the nature of the beast when you are knee-deep in monsters and you have the ability to make everything around you explode with lightning on the regular. (Or frost, or fire, or… you know your character builds, we don’t need to explain it to you.) So perhaps it’s a very good thing that the team behind the game has given us a small preview of the areas and music coming with the Fall of Oriath expansion in video form.
Now there are no monsters to click on, no quests to worry about, nothing but the looks and the sounds to let you really anticipate the actual game. Yes, they’ll mostly be drowned out by the explosions of lightning once you’re actually playing, but why not jump past the break and appreciate it for the moment? Just don’t click on the video instinctively to try blowing something up. It just swaps in full-screen mode, we promise.
