In Path of Exile: Expedition, players encounter the Kalguur, who have traveled to Wraeclast to follow in the footsteps of their ancient settlers and to retrieve their lost artifacts. Players are asked to help retrieve these artifacts from marked Expedition sites where the Kalguur believe their ancestors have fallen. Players must strategically place a chain of explosives across the site and detonate them in order to unearth the remains of the fallen Kalguur, who rise as an undead army that must be defeated. Careful choices of where to place explosives will yield chests that might contain ancient runed artifacts.
Path of Exile Royale:
Will have a slew of new improvements, and will have a separate game balance tweak from the core Path of Exile experience. It will introduce a new Royale-specific passive skill tree, low level versions of many skill gems and unique endgame items made with the game mode in mind.
Path of Exile Royale will be available 48 hours after the conclusion of Grinding gear Games’ livestream, and will be available on weekends throughout the length of the Expedition League.
