Grinding Gear Games has released the latest free expansion of Path of Exile, Path of Exile: Scourge. In Scourge, players must fill the Blood Crucible with the blood of your enemies then shift into an alternate Wraeclast where an apocalyptic event rages, in order to slay powerful demons and craft potent items.
In addition, the latest update for Path of Exile adds six unique new items, improvements to the Atlas of Worlds, and new aspirational endgame content. Moreover, it brings a revamped passive skill tree, new skill gems and guild features. Additionally, players can expect balance changes, and the ability to automatically collect Artifacts.
Going into slightly more details, Grinding Gear has done a lot of balance work improving flasks, ailment mitigation, general character defenses and elemental damage over time. The team has also made some changes to how stacking auras and curses work. Furthermore, it has buffed most Awakened Support Gems.
As always, this new expansion will be automatically applied the next time you run the game. You can also find its complete changelog here.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
