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.
