Recently, Grinding Gear Games released The Fall of Oriath expansion on Xbox One. This rapid release of new content keeps players interested and coming back for more. War for the Atlas is coming to Windows PC on December 8, 2017 and shortly after that to Xbox One. Path of Exile looks stunning on the standard Xbox One and even better on the Xbox One X as it runs at native 4K 60 FPS.
Path of Exile's lore is complicated but this new chapter focuses on the war between The Shaper and The Elder. If you've played the base game, you may remember similar conflicts and characters.
The expansion adds numerous missions and dungeons so expect dozens of hours of gameplay. What's most impressive is that War for the Atlas introduces 32 maps with a lot of endgame items. Path of Exile is already a vast experience and this will make it even larger.
There are also ten new gems which act somewhat like skills. Changing existing ones and finding new combinations radically alters your attacks. For example, using one might result in a swoop attack while the other may cause you to shoot lighting blots at your enemies.
War for the Atlas also adds the Abyss Challenge League where players can earn mysterious items called Abyss Jewels. If you haven't played Path of Exile, be sure to check it out on Xbox One and Windows PC.
