Path of Exile Articles
Path of Exile is a game I’ve had the chance to get quite familiar with over my years writing for MMORPG. I’ve watched it grow into the impressive and expansive title it is today. But if its latest expansion, The Fall of Oriath is any indicator, we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg so far.
The game has enjoyed incredible popularity amongst ARPG fans and the team has been cranking out numerous expansions over the past couple of years to great success. Now, GGG is back once again with the game’s sixth expansion, Fall of Oriath, and it may prove to be the game’s biggest expansion yet.
Four years ago Path of Exile launched hoping to do justice to its spiritual ancestor Diablo II, and hoping to enjoy a similar kind of success.

Building on last year's momentum, this summer Path of Exile launches for Xbox One and releases its biggest expansion yet—The Fall of Oriath.
