Path of Exile: War for the Atlas releases on Xbox One
A couple of weeks after the PC version launched, Path of Exile: War for the Atlas has finally arrived on Xbox One. The MMOARPG expansion adds 32 maps, four new skill gems, and the Abyss challenge league.

On both platforms is a new lockbox that Grinding Gear introduced — and the studio revealed an interesting surprise about it. The Fire and Ice Mystery Box includes 38 items, and some of these can be combined to create entirely new items and effects.

“While the primary motivation of this system is that it offers some extra value for players who buy boxes,” the team said, “it also has the helpful side effect of mopping up some duplicate microtransactions. While the existence of duplicates is priced into the model we use for boxes, we’re open to carefully adding some fun methods like this to remove some.”

Last night I was watching DansGaming on Twitch and watched that dude go over $180 trying to just complete his ice armor set while that dude kept getting multiple after multiple after multiple of items in them. Just like 3-5 copies of the same item well behind the merges. Today I caught another hour of him and he still had gone in more and still didn’t get it.

But hey, ya know, they’re “only cosmetic” and “available for direct purchase later” so best business model around! jjonahjamesonlaughing.gif

Then that guy is a moron, and you’ve seen firsthand why so many people are against lockboxes in general. It is too easy for some people to get addicted to that crap.
