With several of us playing Diablo 3, now's a good time for this.
Path of Exile was rated by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee for release on PS4. Ratings by this Taiwan committee is how many games get a release "leaked" before an official announcement is made.
I hope it comes, and it looks like it is finally coming at some point (came to Xbox last year). I've played a little of it on PC, but I just prefer console. And we need more quality F2P games. Plus, these guys keep the game updated frequently with events, content, and balancing patches.
Path of Exile's December 3.9.0 expansion contains new Atlas mechanics, five new endgame bosses, a new powerful class of support gem, a rework of bows, new items, the Metamorph challenge league and more!
In the Metamorph league, you'll meet a new NPC, Tane Octavius, a master alchemist who studied in Oriath. Exiled to Wraeclast for killing his teacher, Tane searches for what makes the "self", by using his learned alchemical knowledge to assemble monster essences. He hopes to find a cure, or perhaps just the source, for what he calls "the intrinsic darkness" that led to his unforgivable violence.
In each area you play in the Metamorph League, Tane will collect samples from selected monsters you have killed. Summon Tane to combine your choice of samples to create a formidable Metamorphic foe to defeat. Each sample contributes abilities to this boss, who wildly morphs from form to form during the encounter. With careful selection of samples, you control which abilities the boss has and what rewards it yields.
And finally, late next year or possibly early 2021, Path of Exile 2 releases and it sounds very good:
Path of Exile 2 is a new seven-act storyline that is available alongside the original Path of Exile 1 campaign. Both the old and new storyline lead to the same shared Atlas endgame. Path of Exile 2 retains all expansion content that has been created over the last six years and introduces a new skill system, ascendancy classes, engine improvements and more.
Path of Exile 2 introduces the next generation of Path of Exile's iconic skill system. Support Gems are now socketed directly into Skill Gems, removing many of the frustrations present in the old system while maintaining all the previous depth. It's now possible to six-link every skill your character uses.
The new skill gem system sounds great, and really helps simplify things and takes away a pain of point of swapping gear.
