Path of Exile, the plucky hack and slash RPG that out-Diabloed Diablo 3, is going to get a new expansion next month.
It's called Forsaken Masters, and it's coming on August 20. The Masters in question are seven legendary warriors who can train your hero Mr. Miyagi-style to be the best little adventurer there ever was.
Each Master will have their own missions and requests for you to complete. Doing so will earn you reputation with them, and earning enough reputation will lead to good things - not just in regards to your fighting skills. "Once you've earned a Master's trust," explains developer Grinding Gear Games, "you may be taken to a Hideout, where you can create your own personalised town. Masters residing in your Hideout offer you daily Missions and train you in advanced crafting options. Use your Hideout as a quiet place to craft after battle, or expand it and use it as a personalised Guild Hall with hundreds of decorations."
So a little bit more questing and a whole new focus on town construction and crafting. If that wasn't enough there's a bunch of new Challenge leagues to compete in and a reworked version of Exile's bewilderingly vast talent tree system
