Path of Exile: Blight released on September 9th

  • Grinding Gear Games is proud to announce the Path of Exile: Wither! Blight will be available on September 9th and is the latest release of the Path of Exile's quarterly update. Each expansion will introduce a new challenge alliance, dominant POE Currency, POE Orbs, Path of Exile game style, and more.

    At Path of Exile: Withered, dangerous fungal growth has begun to appear on the cursed Wraeclast continent, threatening humans and beasts. With the help of the new NPC Cassia sisters, your mission is to destroy these growths. Cassia built a special pump for the job, but as her pump sucked toxic fungal lizards, monsters of all shapes and sizes appeared to protect against Blight. These demons are particularly hardy. Fortunately, Cassia has designed a series of towers to help protect the pumps you can deploy.

    Blight combines the fast, crazy action of the Path of Exile battle with the strategic fun of the tower defense game. To successfully defeat Blight, you need to make effective decisions, pay attention to your surroundings, and prepare for future growth. Successfully defending Cassia's pumps rewards you with precious weapons and armor, as well as special oils that Cassia uses to smear your rings and amulets with powerful magic.

    In addition to Blight's tower defense game, there are plenty of new skills, items, and balance changes. This update provides significant balance improvements for the Necromancer prototype with new defense options such as POE Orbs, support for gems, AI updates to your minions, existing military themes POE Trade, and significant repairs. The level of superiority of the Master.

    As with every Path of Exile update, all of this addition and everything in the core game is 100% free. The Blight Alliance will last for about three months and has a new gaming economy. The start of the new league is the most exciting moment to play Path of Exile, and thousands of players will be the first to discover everything the new league has to offer, so we hope that you will release on September 9th at Blight.
