Path of Exile: War for the Atlas is available now on PC, with an Xbox One version launching later in December.
Path of Exile: War for the Atlas features 32 new randomized maps and a host of new challenges and rewards as players find themselves caught between two powerful entities battling for the control of Wraeclast - The Elder and The Shaper.
The latest expansion of the hit ARPG also is the first official European release with nine supported languages including German, French and Spanish, and Europe-specific payment methods.
