Grinding Gear Games announced that the latest expansion to their award-winning RPG, Path of Exile: Blight, is now out on PC, with its launch on PS4 and Xbox One set for the 9th of September. Path of Exile: Blight merges the exciting action combat of PoE with the strategy of classic tower defense games.
Path of Exile: Blight introduces a new NPC, Sister Cassia, who educates the player about the dangerous fungal grows that are spreading through Wraeclast. These growths infect and control the minds of nearby monsters, but Sister Cassia has built a pump that can drain the ichor from the growths to render them harmless. Players must deploy a range of towers to help protect the pump while it does its work.
As with all Path of Exile expansions, Blight introduces a wide selection of new skills, items and balance changes, including significant revamps to a few key character archtypes; the Necromancer, the Poison Assassin and the Mine Saboteur.
Path of Exile is available as a free-to-play title on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
