If you hadn’t but twigged that free-to-play action-RPG Path Of Exile is fairly chuffing in style, builders Grinding Gear Games have made it clear. They’ve introduced ExileCon, an official two-day fan conference devoted to clicking on monsters till they burst in a bathe of bloody gold. Running November 16-17, it’ll be a giant love-in for people who attend and produce some massive bulletins for distant viewers too. And not like cons which ask individuals to journey to the wastelands of California or wherever, that is taking place someplace chuffing pretty: New Zealand, particularly Grinding Gear’s house metropolis of Auckland.
ExileCon will carry the massive announce-o-reveal of Path Of Exile’s replace 4.0.Zero enlargement, in addition to of December’s 3.9.Zero smaller enlargement. It’ll additionally function developer talks, the finals of a race match, playable demos of upcoming contents, hangouts, and that different con stuff. The announcement keynote and races shall be livestreamed free for non-attendees too.
Grinding Gear have been planning this publicly for nearly a yr so it’s no shock however I actually am impressed that this studio’s first game has grown large enough for its personal devoted two-day vacation spot con.
Tickets are actually on sale from the ExileCon site. They’re $200 USD (£150) and fancier tiers with bonus dinners and such are already sold-out.
Though actually, in the event that they’re going to New Zealand, received’t attendees sack off the entire ‘convention’ factor to go stare at mountains and swim in lakes?
