Grinding Gear Games have announced the launch of Path of Exile‘s largest 2018 expansion, Betrayal (13GB) on Steam PC, with Xbox One release set for Monday, December 10. The best Diablo-like game is Free-to-play, never Pay-to-win, and it just got even bigger and better.
New Betrayal Story Campaign
Path of Exile: Betrayal expands the storyline with a new campaign and many quests. Players must accompany Jun Ortoi as she investigates the Immortal Syndicate, a mysterious and dodgy organization. With Jun’s help, players will seek to manipulate and influence the eighteen members that make up the Syndicate in order to further their investigation.
Grinding Gear Games have poured a great amount of quality craftsmanship in the creation of each Syndicate member, making sure each of them has their own personality, with alliances and rivalries that will change based on player actions! Players will be required to master the art of bargaining, interrogation, and possibly execution of a few NPCs, depending on their deeds.
New Betrayal Features
Raid Syndicate Safehouses
Pillage supplies, earn great rewards and discover the ultimate identity of the Immortal Syndicate’s mastermind
Immortal Syndicate members drop items with new Veiled Modifiers that Jun can reveal. As you unveil modifiers, you can craft these on to other items and work towards unlocking higher level versions of these properties.
New Masters, Familiar Faces
As the Immortal Syndicate have risen to power, the old cohort of Forsaken Masters has vanished. Einhar, Alva, Niko, Zana and Jun have ascended as a new group of Masters to aid you.
Individual Mastercrafting options are now unlocked by completing specific content, such as Incursion rooms or Delve encounters. The entire process has been improved – from the user interface to the way you acquire new crafting options
Unified Hideout System
Hideout, favor and decorations are now shared across all leagues. Players can load and save hideout templates and share them with other PoE players.
New End-Game Maps
The Atlas of Worlds has expanded with four new maps, which are more detailed versions of fan favorites from Delve’s Azurite Mine, and the entire Atlas of Worlds’ tiling has been rearranged.
New Skills and New Powerful Items
Betrayal introduces 10 new or revamped skills for three core character archetypes and 15 new unique items (many with Veiled mods), as well as 5 new Divination Cards designed by PoE community members.
More details about the Betrayal expansion can be found on the official, dedicated Update page.
