Path of Exile: War for the Atlas

Path of Exile, one of the best free-to-play action RPGs just got a little bit better with the release of the new and huge update, War for the Atlas.

Grinding Gear Games released this new expansion today for PC, with the Xbox One version launching later this month. Among the several features, War for the Atlas includes 32 new randomized maps, three new languages (German, French and Spanish), new bosses and plenty more. Take a look at the big features below:

• War for the Atlas: A mysterious entity known only as The Elder haunts the Atlas, spreading decay and battling The Shaper for control.

• The Atlas, Redrawn: Find your way to the centre of the Atlas through new paths and discover new challenges along the way. War for the Atlas adds 32 randomized maps to Path of Exile's ever-evolving end-game.

• New Bosses: Along with deadly encounters at the end of each new map, this expansion introduces the four Elder Guardians, whom you must defeat before you are able to face the Elder himself.

• New End-game Items: As the war between the Shaper and Elder rages, challenge their control of the Atlas to find exclusive new rare items that have special properties: Shaped Items and Elder Items.

• Endless Character Customization: Find four new Skill Gems designed around necromancy, six new Support Gems and over fifty new Unique Items.

• Abyss League: Coinciding with the launch of Path of Exile: War for the Atlas, we're introducing the Abyss Challenge League. Fight ancient foes that spill forth from the cracks beneath your feet as you journey across Wraeclast, and claim valuable new Abyss Jewels to customise your characters and items in new ways.

• Available on Xbox One and PC: Both Path of Exile: War for the Atlas and the Abyss Challenge League are coming to PC and Xbox One. And, of course, both are 100% free to play.

• Now Available in German, French and Spanish: This expansion also marks our official release in Europe, increasing the total number of supported languages to nine and adding Europe-specific payment methods.
