Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath will hit Xbox One on August 24

Grinding Gear Games has announced that Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath will launch on Xbox One of August 24. This will mark the first time the game has been officially available for Xbox One, following the launch of the Path of Exile closed beta in late July.

The Fall of Oriath doubles the size of the current game, adding in six new acts. The expansion also adds a new character customization system, called Pantheon, which lets players equip themselves with "the power of the gods."

Path of Exile offers up action-RPG (ARPG) gameplay and a dark fantasy atmosphere reminiscent of Diablo. With its Xbox One launch, Path of Exile will include all six previously released expansions, and, like the PC version, the game will be totally free to play. And if you plan on picking up an Xbox One X, Path of Exile will be one of the many games that will be enhanced for the console, using its extra horsepower to bump to 4K resolution.

  • I'll be playing this over the weekend.
  • I'll be playing the hell out of this.
  • I've been playing it, and I find it to be cumbersome. It's ok, but not great.
  • thank goodness, an xbox game, thought i'd have to wait until AC:origins
  • I've been jumping in and out of the PC version, it'l be god to grab it on Xbox as it looks god damn ugly on my SP3, everything in towns is just a blobby mess (I have dynamic resolution on).
  • Then how about turn off Dynamic Resolution? There you go, problem fixed. Also SP3 sounds like you're still using Windows XP. maybe you should upgrade. It's 2017.
  • Because this is a game that benefits far more from 60 frames than pretty pictures. SP3 = Surface Pro 3.
  • That literally makes no sense because you even admitted the poor graphics you were viewing were harming your experience in the first post.  but yeah gaming on a surface pro will literally never be viable, i have the sp4 and i just can't tolerate anything on it because of how weak it is. Get a real gaming laptop, or just build a pc (much better if you don't need to be mobile) if you want to game on the pc.  Dynamic resolution is vile. 
  •  actually I said it was a blobby mess in towns, the actual areas with combat look much better. Still not exceptional but fine enough to play. I also didn't say it was harming my experience, just that it looked ugly
