'Path of Exile' (ALL) The Fall of Oriath Expansion Gets Xbox One Date

by Rainier on Aug. 21, 2017 @ 7:11 a.m. PDT

Path of Exile is a free-to-play online action Role-Playing Game (RPG) set in a dark fantasy world, where you play as one of six character classes, banished for their past misdeeds to the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast.

Playing as one of six character classes, players find themselves banished for their past misdeeds to the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast. There, they will encounter hundreds of species of opponents laden with loot and mysterious artifacts as they explore the abandoned continent.

Players will be able to purchase in-game perks, such as extra victory animations, clothing and special effects. To protect the integrity of the game for all players, Grinding Gear Games has decided not to sell abilities or experience points – ensuring a level-playing field for everyone in game.

With an open-ended and flexible skill and item system, randomised items and random dungeons, the game promises three acts of visceral combat gameplay, with additional expansions already planned.

Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath features six brand new acts - doubling the size of current game. The Fall of Oriath also introduces a new Pantheon character-customization system that lets players wield the power of the gods themselves.

The Fall of Oriath Xbox One release follows the hugely successful release of the PC version of the game in early August.  Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath saw a record number of players playing the game simultaneously (143,000!) - more than double Grinding Gear Games' previous game expansion release - Atlas of Worlds. Path of Exile has seen an average audience growth of 27% over each of their last four releases.

Additionally, Path of Exile will be launched in Mainland China by Tencent on August 22 - which is expected to add a 'few' more players to the game's millions of active participants.

Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath Features:

  • Act 5: The Fall of Oriath:  Return to Oriath. Home to the oppressive templar theorcracy. Explore frozen mountaintops, pristine temples and anarchic city streets. Leave a trail of furious destruction as you seek vengeance for your exile.
  • A Single Playthrough, A Complete Story: The previous difficulty level system has been removed to make room for another five brand new acts, bringing to the total to ten. In these five acts, you will weave through both new and familiar locations and witness the drastic results of your past actions.
  • Claim the Power of the Gods: Path of Exile's new pantheon system provides you with potent powers taken from the gods themselves. But beware, the gods won't go down without a fight.
  • New Ways to Play: With dozens of new items, new skills, new locations, new boss fights and more, Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath will keep even the most die-hard fans busy for many months to come.
Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath is scheduled to launch on Xbox One on Thursday, August 24, 2017.
