Update: Tickets are now on sale on the ExileCon site!

Original: If you’re hoping to land a ticket to ExileCon, Path of Exile‘s big shebang in November, get your devices ready. They’ll go on sale tomorrow, at 1 p.m. Pacific (4 p.m. Eastern), and while Grinding Gear Games “don’t expect to sell out quickly,” it’s also their first time running a show like this, and demand could very well outstrip supply. We’re not saying you should set an alarm and be spam-refreshing the PoE site tomorrow afternoon … but maybe you should.

In other news, the latest expansion, Synthesis, was the game’s biggest ever, and that’s not just hype and marketing. Well, it is a little hype and marketing, but it’s also backed up by numbers:

Steam Charts has peak concurrency over the weekend at about 111,000 players, which lets you guess at there being about another 66,000 players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 (where it launched alongside the expansion), and the PoE launcher. Any way you slice it, it was a good weekend for PoE fans and the crew at Grinding Gear Games.

Oh, and yeah, you better be refreshing the site tomorrow if you want those tickets.
