Path of Exile 3.21’s release date is set for early April, making it the perfect time to get your fix of loot in one of the best free RPGs once the Diablo 4 beta ends. Crucible, the new Challenge League, and other content will be fully revealed in an upcoming livestream with developer Grinding Gear Games.

Path of Exile Crucible is the new expansion and challenge league that comes with Path of Exile patch 3.21. The next update will be revealed in full during a livestream on March 30 at 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT / 8pm BST / 9pm.

While we don’t have much more detail than that yet, the name reveal trailer below shows a character approaching what appears to be some sort of forge, with lava flowing into a pit. under a giant stone statue of a person. Maybe we can hope to gather resources for a special crafting system that will allow us to create different and personalized rare or unique items during the seasonal event?

The previous league, Path of Exile The Forbidden Sanctum, has proven to be one of the most popular PoE expansions in a long time; this is largely due to the very solid base balance updates, with players enjoying the rebalancing of enemy modifiers and an overhaul to make loot more consistent and plentiful.

The Forbidden Sanctum mode of the same name has been so successful that GGG says it’s considering ways to make Path of Exile Sanctum permanent in future leagues, though it notes that won’t happen with POE 3.21.

If you enjoyed the Diablo 4 beta and Blizzard’s return to a more deliberate and thoughtful style of gameplay somewhat reminiscent of Diablo 2, I highly recommend checking out Path of Exile during the downtime that follows. . After all, Path of Exile was originally envisioned as something of a love letter to D2, and its dark fantasy world and rewarding gameplay offer plenty to explore and enjoy – and it’s free, after all, so why not give it a shot?

The Path of Exile 3.21 release date is April 7 for PC and Mac, with the Crucible expansion later coming to Xbox and PlayStation consoles on April 12. As a free-to-play PC game, the Path of Exile Crucible expansion is also available for free to all players, although it will include several new purchasable cosmetic items and packs available for real money.

Definitely something to consider while you wait for the Diablo 4 release date, then. Otherwise, check out other top games like Diablo for PC, or read how Path of Exile Ruthless is winning back the genre’s most hardened players with its ultra-punishing rarity.
