Path of Exile Expansion Fall of Oriath Launches, Concurrent Playerbase Spikes 10x

Path of Exile 3.0 Fall of Oriath officially launched last night and is off to a remarkable start. According to Steam Charts the game's playerbase increased from ~8,000 concurrent to over 80,000 and hit an all time peak today of 86,645.

The 3.0 expansion for Path of Exile brings with it a LOT of changes. Most notably though it added 6 new acts to the game (acts 5 - 10) and removed the Cruel and Merciless difficulty levels to create a single coherent playthrough. Adding 5 new acts in a single expansion is absolutely incredible and is easily the biggest update to the game since its launch and arguably one of the most content rich expansions ever. There's A LOT of changes, so make sure to check out the full patch notes if you play Path of Exile.
