Path of Exile’s Legion launch on Friday coincided with the launch of the game in South Korea, so you had to know we were going to see new concurrency records being smashed left and right. “The Legion launch has so far resulted in peak player concurrency of over 224,000 players on the main Path of Exile server (excluding Xbox, PS4 and the Chinese realms), which beats our previous record set by Betrayal in December,” Grinding Gear wrote. We’d expect that number to go up up up this week now that the expansion has rolled out to console as well, and even with that spike, Grinding Gear called it the game’s “smoothest launch ever.”
Stay tuned for our Wandering Wraeclast column later today, when we’ll deliver our own written first impressions of the launch!
As we mentioned in our news post yesterday, the launch of Path of Exile: Legion was a huge success! We wanted to post an update about many of the small issues that we have either just fixed or are fixing today.https://t.co/c2oCZEz8jE pic.twitter.com/Uffc6dQgVQ
