Path of Exile's latest league/expansion, Expedition, is now live on PC and Mac, with a console release coming July 28. As we covered in our preview from last week, this new league sends you off in search of lost pilgrims from the distant past, to dig them up and find their treasures ... with explosives. There are also 19 new skill gems, meant to support each of the game's Ascendancy classes but offering a wide range of build options for all classes.

That's what PoE fans have come to expect over the years from a new league, but there's a lot more. The biggest game-wide change is a massive rebalancing effort that affects several support gems, as well as making major changes to how flasks work. Grinding Gear Games went over all of that in a long manifesto posted last week, but suffice it to say that you'll have to make some significant adjustments to your play style in the coming days and weeks.

And then there's Path of Exile Royale, which will be available on weekends going forward. The battle royale mode was an April Fools' joke in 2018 and stuck around for just a few days, but now it's back with a better UI, new passive skill tree, leader boards, and overall more refined gameplay.
