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.
