It doesn’t seem as if Path of Exile is slowing down any time soon: Thanks to the launch of the Harvest league last week, the game came close to topping its last concurrency record, which was earlier this year when many players across the world were stuck home in quarantine.
“This weekend we launched Path of Exile: Harvest
and reached a peak player concurrency of 231,130 players (97.5% of the record we set with Delirium at the height of the international lockdown),” Grinding Gear Games explains. “It was one of the smoothest launches we’ve had, with just a few small hotfixes to address minor problems. […] We are extremely happy with the reception to Harvest’s mechanic and crafting system! It’s absolutely wonderful to see the community enjoying and engaging with something that was the result of so much hard work. We are still monitoring feedback to see if there are issues that need to be addressed.”
Console launch is expected this Wednesday, but in the meantime, you can watch us playing!
