Path of Exile, maybe the most popular and highest rated free-to-play MMORPG out there, is still updated with new content 5 years after launch. The next expansion to hit the game servers on August 31, 2018, Delve, introduces the game’s first infinite dungeon, among other things.
The Endless Azurite Mine
The infinite dungeon is in the form of a mine that spans endlessly on each side of the map and down. The so-called Azurite Mine’s infinite depths are there for players to extract treasure and discover its subterranean secrets. Using a machine called the Crawler, players can venture back and forth into an ever-deepening and widening dungeon, thanks to the light source provided by the machine.
You can also extract that mineral called Azurite and trade it for dynamites, flares and crafting materials to help you find secret chambers and go further. You must however control your progress as your source of light moves and is your only chance to stay alive besides a few flares. Oh, and why repeat the same thing endlessly you may ask! Well, the deeper you delve, the greater the challenges and the rewards that await you, so good luck if you intend to make it last forever, and happy treasure-hunting while you’re at it!
New + Revamped Skills
The new Delve extension includes ten powerful new or completely reworked skills, centered around two character archetypes: the Guardian and the Pathfinder. “Play as a holy warrior who strikes down foes with lightning damage while benefiting teammates and minions, or as a chaotic archer who uses nature- and poison-based skills to pin and suffocate enemies.”
New Powerful Items
The expansion also features powerful new items to discover, including 7 new Divination Cards and 18 new Unique Items which have a focus on creating powerful new build opportunities.
As you delve even deeper, you may encounter lost cities from Wraeclast’s dark history. In your travels across Wraeclast, you may (very rarely) discover a Timeworn Reliquary Key. This key will open a portal to the Timeworn Reliquary, which contains one of 150 Unique Relics from past Path of Exile leagues.
Path of Exile: Delve will launch on August 31st (PDT) on PC and September 3rd on Xbox One. You will find more and regularly updated information on the official expansion page bellow.
