After a long hiatus, Path of Exile: Royale is back. The battle royale mode of the action-packed game, which debuted in 2018, will go live for 48 hours on Thursday. The mode will continue to appear over the weekend through the new Path of Exile Expedition League.
Path of Exile: Battle Royale is a battle royale mode that is set in a well-known action game. Players collect loot, improve skills, gain path of exile currency and fight on islands designed for Path of Exile: Royale. The 2021 version of the mode is even more sophisticated than the previous version that Grinding Gear Games created on Paragon.
Chris Wilson, co-founder of Grinding Gear Games, said in Thursday's reveal video, "We joke in the office that our fast pace of development means we could add Battle Royale mode to Path of Exile in a single day of development." . The original Path of Exile: Royale was an April Fool's joke that the developers put together a team and asked each of them to work on the project for just one day.
Grinding Gear Games only had Path of Exile: Royale in the game for a few days, but fans loved the mode and have asked if it's back ever since. The studio didn't want to bring the mode back, despite demand, as it was completely unbalanced. But earlier this year, Grinding Gear Games began work on a better version of Path of Exile: Royale.
The new version of Path of Exile: Royal comes with an adapted version of the path of Exile's ridiculous skill tree, which was specially developed for this mode. It's designed to be quick and safe to use (it doesn't take up the entire screen so you can watch your character) and includes over 90 new skills. It is also class independent. Grinding Gear Games has also reworked some popular skills in lower tier versions specifically for Path of Exile: Royals.
Grinding Gear Games will roll out the mode every weekend for the next few weeks, fixing any obvious balance issues during the week. If fans like the mode, the team may add new features.
Players who win Path of Exile: Royals will receive a feast to add to their in-game supply. While the festival is decorative, it will expand and change shape as players win more and more games.
Grinding Gear Games is not sure whether Path of Exile: Royale can successfully compete alongside giants like Fortnite or Apex Legends. But it's something the community has been asking for for years, and it's finally in the hands of the players again.
