New players hoping to get into Path of Exile when the latest league expansion, ‘Legion’, arrives on June 7 may be in for a shock.
In an exclusive interview with OnlySP, Grinding Gear Games co-founder Chris Wilson commented on what the newest updates mean for new players:
“The goal was actually to be more hostile to early players. We’re rebalancing the early monster combat to be harder and more satisfying.”
Wilson went on to specifically mention that the damage dealt by boss enemies has been increased in an attempt to promote a feeling of satisfaction when players dodge their attacks, which is made easier by “better signalling.”
Path of Exile has received many major updates since its initial launch on PC in 2013. Players only have to wait a few more days to find out how the latest update alters the feel of early game combat.
