Path of Exile Expansion Closed Beta This Month

The Path of Exile website is counting down the nine days until the commencement of closed beta testing of The Awakening, an upcoming expansion for Grinding Gear's action/RPG, and those interested in testing can sign up on this page. They don't actually offer much on the add-on, deferring to various outlets who are covering the news, so thanks to MisterBenn for pointing to a write-up on Gamepedia with lots of details on the add-on and a first look trailer. He also did a nice job of highlighting these details:

  • New Act 4
  • 11 new skills, 9 new boss fights, 90 new unique items
  • Closed Beta opening on April 20 (by application, starting small and getting extended)
  • Passive tree rework
  • Ability to socket new Jewels into the passive tree for special effects in nearby area
  • Rework of existing content
  • New quality of life additions
  • Script-able loot drop filter to completely customise filter/colour/highlight/border/sound of drop levels
  • Net code rewrite! New Lockstep mode available, offering a "wait for server and only show the truth" mode on top of the existing "prediction + desync" mode!
