Path of Exile will finally hit its retail release on Wednesday, October 23rd. The game has already seen several new features patched in, including the Scion prestige class, an expanded Act 3, new areas, monsters and much, much more.
New Areas, Monsters and Climactic Boss fight
Featuring the new Gardens, Library and Tower tilesets (with multiple areas and quests each), Path of Exile's Act 3 has been expanded to lead up to a new grand finale boss fight with the Exile's main antagonist - Dominus himself. This completes the core story arc and opens Path of Exile up to the addition of new acts with future expansions.
With the introduction of the new areas, we've added six entirely new monster types to Path of Exile and have augmented existing monsters with new abilities. Some of the new monsters have been added outside of Act 3 to improve earlier parts of the game. For example, the Scavengers in the Terraces have been replaced by tribes of Cannibals.
