Path of Exile the Fall of Oriath expansion and Harbinger Challenge League goes live in just a few hours. You can check the exact time on the official home page. There will be three hours of planned maintenance later on, after which everyone can jump in.
The launch day is today, on August 4th, after the realms go down and patching starts. Head to the official home page to check the exact number of hours left until release. There is no need to refresh it!
- The realm goes down and patching begins at: Aug 04, 2017 1PM EST / 10AM PDT
- The servers go live at: Aug 04, 2017 4PM EST / 1PM PDT
The 3.0.0 patch with its staggering 14k+ words, will take up a sizable chunk of your hard drive. It will take around 7.1 GB of space. If you want to get into the game as soon as possible, and you think that three hours are not enough to download it all, there is a torrent link on the official page. The GGPK file that is included in the torrent needs to be copied in your install folder once the patching server goes up, and not before. It also requires a larger update, as it includes all the existing client content.
There is currently an extra character slot sale in the store. It will be up for another day if you decide that you need it.
Here’s just a crumb of the content that we’ll get to enjoy soon:
- Acts Five through Ten.
- The Harbinger Challenge League
- The Pantheon system – a new feature, four major god powers, seven minor…
- 8 Vaal Side Areas with new bosses, found through areas in Oriath.
- Passive Skill Tree planning system.
- New Skill and Support Gems.
- The enormous amount of new balance changes.
- Some bug fixes.
