Path of Exile changes its mind on legacy leagues during Fall of Oriath’s beta

Grinding Gear Games announced last night that it will be extending Path of Exile’s legacy leagues through beta, contrary to plans it made last week.

“Last week we posted a Beta FAQ where we mentioned that we were planning to run some events between the end of the Legacy League and the full release of The Fall of Oriath,” says the studio. “These events would be concurrent to its Beta and some would grant Beta keys. There has been overwhelming feedback that the community would like us to extend the Legacy Leagues during the Beta so that continuing to play Legacy characters and find Relics would be an additional option. We have decided to do so.”

Conveniently, this gives folks an extension on buying legacy supporter packs and other cash-shop stuff too.

The beta itself begins on June 7th; you can buy one of the supporter packs to ensure yourself a spot!
