Fans of the Action RPG Path of Exile should be glad to hear that the hack-and-slasher will be receiving a content expansion on March 5th. The update will be the first of some structural changes PoE will be seeing in 2014.

“It expands the core game and sets the pace for our ongoing four-monthly updates.” said development at Grinding Gear Games. “Today we’re proud to announce both the name and theme of the update, while teasing some of the scope of how far the Vaal corruption has spread through Wraeclast.”

The expansion focuses on Queen Atziri and the Vaal corruption she has brought upon Wraeclast. Players will battle their way to exile glory by defeating the Vaal corruption and harnessing it to their own advantage. Much of the world has been lost to the queen, and it is up to those on the path to glory to defeat Atziri at her own game.

“The sovereign of seduction is dead. Long live the Queen of Sacrifice!”

  1. I love this game! Unfortunately i’m so bad at it that i always need to make a new char at cruel difficulty…to start over again…

  2. Even hack and slash are point and click, but yeah PoE is Hack/Slash due to the fact you can just plow through a whole mob and not just a single target.

    • its funny cuz this diablo wannabe turned out to be more diablo than diablo 3 was

      remember? diablo was this game for mature audience, where you would see blood and gore everywhere, dark corridors and catacombs soaked with blood, scary minions and scary bosses, you would sense the corruption of the world everywhere

      diablo 3 looks like some comic book story implemented into a game while preserving the art, just like DC universe or Marvel Heroes

      in fact all of the latest blizzard games have this comic art style, which defeats the purpose of the “dramatic and badass” storyline

      need i say more?
