Path of Exile expansion The Awakening launches 10th July

Act Four! Game rebalanced! UI overhauled! Loadsa new stuff!

Path of Exile - a really rather good Diablo-style PC game - gets an expansion on 10th July called The Awakening. The plan is to unlock the content at 1pm PDT, which is 9pm UK time.

The Awakening adds a whole new Act to the game, Act Four, which opens the Highgate Mine and all its evil within. This includes a face-off with something dubbed Nightmare, and what sounds like a jaunt inside the belly of the Beast.

In addition, the expansion bestows new skills, jewels, exotic items and challenge leagues. Plus, it rebalances the entirety of Path of Exile from the very beginning, and overhauls the game's user interface. There's a whole expansion mini-site with more detail.
