Path of Exile preps Fall of Oriath beta amidst technical problems

    
2
The beta for Path of Exile’s Fall of Oriath expansion is expected to launch today, but it hasn’t been without its technical issues. On Monday, Grinding Gear Games had to roll back the 2.6.1 microtransaction system for fixes. The same thing happened last night, causing the team to once again roll back to 2.6.0.m and inform players that the microtrans system won’t be included in today’s 2.6.2 patch.

The beta is anticipated to include acts 5 through 7, the visual upgrades for earlier content, balance changes, item changes, the Labyrinth restructure, new minimap, and the Pantheon feature for acts 6 and beyond. Act 8 will be added to the beta later (9 and 10 won’t be); there are no unique items to test right now, nor any new support or skill gems. And of course, the microtransaction system won’t be live.

GGG has also warned players that Atlas of Worlds supporter packs and their exclusive bits will vanish forever once this beta begins, so grab one while you can.

Stay tuned for more coverage from us on the expansion, and in the meantime, check out this video of an act seven boss!
