If you’re a fan of Grinding Gear Games’ Path of Exile, you’ll be glad to know that the free-to-play action RPG is getting a new expansion called Synthesis. You can check out the Path of Exile Synthesis info and trailer below.
In Path of Exile: Synthesis, you will encounter Cavas, recover his lost memories and chain them together to reach valuable rewards, new boss fights and crafting opportunities. Our March expansion contains the Synthesis challenge league, new items, new gems, a complete rebalance of spells throughout Path of Exile, an integrated version of the Betrayal league and much, much more.
To help Cavas remember his past, you will find fragments of his decaying memories throughout Wraeclast. Fight your way through the monsters that inhabit his memories in order to activate stabilisers before the memories collapse around you.
Stabilised memory fragments can be pieced together to navigate the void in Cavas’ mind and reach his distant memories. But beware, these fragments can only be explored a limited number of times before they collapse completely, so plan your path carefully.
Within Cavas’ distant memories are many types of valuable rewards. As you progress deeper within the recesses of his darkest memories, his mind starts to synthesise encounters with dangerous and twisted manifestations.
Decaying memories yield Fractured Items with broken mods that are locked in place. While these are not generally useful as-is, you’ll find occasional Fractured Items that have excellent locked mods, resulting in much easier crafting.
In the Memory Nexus lies the Synthesiser, a powerful device that lets you destroy Fractured Items to create base types with custom implicit mods. These implicit mods are somewhat controllable by careful choice of input items to consume.
Synthesis also contains a complete balance overhaul of all spells in Path of Exile, six new Chaos and Holy spells and significant incentives for hand-casting including several new support gems.
NEW CASTER ARCHETYPES
The new Holy Spellcaster archetype features Path of Exile’s first Holy spells, including Divine Ire, Purifying Flame and Wave of Conviction. The Chaos Spellcaster archetype not only provides an easier introduction to Chaos spells with Soulrend, but adds many new tools to Path of Exile’s existing arsenal of Chaos spells.
In addition to Fractured Items, Synthesised Items and over a dozen new Divination Cards designed by our supporters, Path of Exile: Synthesis contains 16 powerful new unique items with a focus on impacting the way players play Path of Exile.
Path of Exile Synthesis will slash out this March 8, 2019, which could very well be the PS4 release date of the game.
