What’s that rhythmic thumping in the background? Why, it’s Path of Exile drumming up hype for its next expansion reveal! As most fans of the multiplayer ARPG know, Thursday, January 7th, will begin the official unveiling of the 3.13.0 expansion, and Grinding Gear Games has provided some timing details for those who are looking to prepare themselves for the event.
First off, we have a schedule for reveals, including a Q&A summary on January 8th, the reveal of Challenge rewards on January 9th, and a variety of other events on January 11th such as the pre-purchase of 3.13 private leagues, the 3.13 balance manifesto, and the official end of the Heist league. It’s a pretty comprehensive schedule, falling just short of telling fans what the devs are having for lunch and what time they’re eating it.
Additional details are included in a little FAQ, reaffirming the reveal broadcast’s start time of 2:00 p.m. EST on January 7th, announcing that Twitch Drops will be enabled during the broadcast, and assuring those that miss the broadcast that there will be a regular announcement page that will chronicle all of the reveals. All in all, it’s about to become an exciting couple of weeks for Path of Exile players.
