The secrets of the Kalguur will soon be unearthed when Path of Exile: Expedition launches in less than a day! In this news post, we've gathered all the information you need to know about what happens on launch day and how to start downloading early.
The realm goes down and patching begins at: July 23rd, 10:00AM (PDT).
The servers go live at: July 23rd, 1:00PM (PDT).
Three hours before the end of the countdown, the realm will go down and patching will begin shortly after. When the countdown ends, the servers will be live and you'll be able to join the Expedition League!
The patch size for the update will be around 8GB on the standalone client and Steam. We've also made a torrent available for this update which is around 25GB. Please keep in mind that this method, while available earlier, makes it a larger update as it includes all the existing client content. When patching begins for Path of Exile: Expedition you'll also have a few remaining files that you'll need to update as well.
This torrent only includes the GGPK file, so you'll need to copy it into your actual install folder once the patching server is up, no earlier than three hours before Path of Exile: Expedition launches. Please note that you can't use this GGPK file with the Steam client and macOS.
Path of Exile: Expedition will launch on consoles at July 28th, 5:00PM (PDT). Downtime will begin for deployment at approximately July 28th, 1:00PM (PDT).
If you're looking for some extra character slots for the launch, we're running a sale on these right now! This is also your last chance to get Apollyon Mystery Boxes! It will leave the store when our next mystery box becomes available! Keep in mind that if you haven't taken advantage of it yet, it's still possible to get one free Apollyon Mystery Box when you spend any amount of points in the store. NOTE: this is only possible once per account. Additional purchases do not grant additional mystery boxes. If you need some extra points, we recommend checking out the Expedition Supporter Packs.
