Path of Exile Version 1.1.0 Mini-expansion and More Updates

As if the recent updates to the game haven't been enough, Grinding Gear Games is now planning to step it up with yet more big updates to give players more reason to stick around and play. Ever since the official release back in November 2013, there have been a lot of additions to the game that have made it a far cry from its former state in the beta, yet it still retains much of what makes it one of the most unique and innovative online action RPGs in gaming today.

The biggest of these updates is something that is pretty big. On March 5, the first truly major update since the official release of Path of Exile will be implemented. Version 1.1.0 is a mini-expansion with a name that will eventually be revealed, and the information we can get so far are that from various teasers and updates throughout February. As the 1.1.0 release date approaches, there will be more reveals to show what is in store for Path of Exile, perhaps including things like new Path of Exile items and so on.

They have given dates for the reveals leading up to March 5. On February 13, they will announce the name of the mini-expansion and a 20-day countdown will commence on the game's official website and in the game client itself to remind everyone on what's about to go down. A week after that, you'll get to see some teaser screenshots and a bit more information on the added features. In the succeeding week, the last of the reveals will be through the lifting of the press embargo, so you'll see the gameplay trailer and various other things will be shown to all, just five days before the update is released. Once the version 1.1.0 mini-expansion has been fully released, there will also be new four-month leagues to commence for players to celebrate the improvements.

While waiting for that update, there will also be an event for Valentine's Day. Yes, there will be celebration of the day of hearts in the game with a new weapon effect exclusive to the occasion. As always with Path of Exile, special holiday items are given that special dark touch to make it suit being in Wraeclast. The Valentine's Heart Weapon Effect is basically a still beating human heart skewered on your weapon, which is apt for Valentine's Day in Path of Exile. The item is now for sale until February 16th, which should give you ample time to get it. Those who had purchased it last year will see "2013" marked on theirs as reward for supporting the game in early beta.

That is quite a handful, but it's not likely to just end there. Considering that it's only the start of the year and there have already been some major developments in the game, 2014 is turning out to be quite a year for Path of Exile. Tune in for more updates from Grinding Gear Games as they work towards improving the game even more.
