According to a press release from developer Grinding Gear Games, the expansion will include six new acts, doubling the size of Path of Exile in its current state. It also will feature a Pantheon character customization system that will let players “wield the power of the gods themselves.”
The full set of features include:
Act 5: The Fall of Oriath: Return to Oriath. Home to the oppressive templar theocracy. Explore frozen mountaintops, pristine temples and anarchic city streets. Leave a trail of furious destruction as you seek vengeance for your exile.
A Single Playthrough, A Complete Story: The previous difficulty level system has been removed to make room for another five brand new acts, bringing to the total to ten. In these five acts, you will weave through both new and familiar locations and witness the drastic results of your past actions.
Claim the Power of the Gods: Path of Exile’s new pantheon system provides you with potent powers taken from the gods themselves. But beware, the gods won’t go down without a fight.
New Ways to Play: With dozens of new items, new skills, new locations, new boss fights and more, Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath will keep even the most die-hard fans busy for many months to come.
