The hype around Path of Exile’s release has been building for quite some time. The game is set to be released on Xbox One later this year, which could give it an even greater audience than many may have previously assumed. However, players are beginning to see that the launch isn’t without its flaws and issues.—
The latest expansion for the popular free-to-play Diablo style action RPG Path of Exile has come out, and it’s been tough to avoid. It arrives with a new class, story content and 20 pieces of gear that can drop from any boss in the game! We’ve taken a look at what else is coming up in this title over the next few months.The launch of Path of Exile’s newest expansion, Scourges in the Abyss, saw concurrency numbers near its all-time highest point.
The “Path of Exile’s Scourge launch sees concurrency numbers near its all-time highest point” is the latest update to the game. The launch saw a peak in concurrency numbers, which are at their highest point since launch.
When the Scourge expansion for Path of Exile went online this past Friday, we spoke about how the last expansion didn’t exactly excite fans and resulted in lower MMOARPG concurrency rates. Grinding Gear Games seems to have been paying attention to those data as well, as the company revealed that the Scourge launch witnessed a peak player count of 254,570, which is 96 percent of the game’s previous high.
The report goes on to discuss the expansion’s general launch, describing it as “smooth” with the exception of item linking in chat creating problems for roughly 10% of players, which was handled by temporarily removing item linking. With the next realm restart patch, item linking functionality should be restored.
Meanwhile, GGG is listening to player comments and preparing changes like making the transformation progress meter for Scourged goods apparent at a glance on the Crucibles Panel and making the Blood Crucible’s resource bar more visible when it’s full. Scourge will be released on consoles as well, and there will be another Twitch Rivals esports tournament in the near future. Overall, it seems that this expansion is going well.
