The APRG game “Path of Exile” developer Grinding Gear Games (hereinafter referred to as 3G) has repeatedly hinted that the game’s 4.0 update will be a super-large update, although the specific update is still unknown, but recently 3G studio director Chris Wilson said that they will announce specific details on the “Path of Exile Carnival” held in November this year, while the 4.0 version represents the game into the next generation, which will compete directly with Blizzard’s future Diablo 4.
“For us, the 4.0.0 expansion pack will compete with Diablo 4,” Chris Wilson said in an interview with foreign media PCgamesN. “Version 4.0 represents the next generation of ARPG games and will be a very significant update to Path of Exile. We will first announce some content on the ‘Path of Exile’, and players will be able to play earlier versions of this version. It will definitely make people very excited.”
The “Path of Exile Carnival” will be held on November 16th and 17th this year. But for the development of the 4.0 version of the game, it means that there will be about a year and a half. According to previous reports, we know that Blizzard has not launched a new work this year, and if Blizzard can launch “Diablo 4” by 2020, it will definitely be the positive scene of these two next-generation APRG games.
For the current Path of Exile, the Path of Exile: Legion will be officially updated on the 7th of next month; the 3.9.0 version of the game will be announced at the end of the year. It can be said that after a series of previous updates, “Path of Exile” has now grown into an ARPG game that cannot be ignored, and the subsequent update of the game is naturally expected.
