Grinding Gear Games announced today that the latest expansion to their award-winning RPG, Path of Exile: Legion, will launch today for the PC, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions available on Monday, June 10.
Trapped for thousands of years in the Domain of Timeless Conflict, Wraeclast's mightiest military leaders have been fighting an eternal war. In Path of Exile: Legion, you'll set free their legions and battle them to earn valuable rewards.
Additionally in this latest expansion, Grinding Gear Games has created an entirely new melee combat experience. All melee attacks now hit multiple enemies, and all movement skills are now instant, with additional movement and dodging skills added to various classes.
Legion also introduces a few new character archtypes: the Blood and Sand Gladiator and the Rage Berserker. The Blood and Sand Gladiator can switch between Blood Stance and Sand Stance - Blood causing massive damage to multiple enemies at once and Sand providing the character with better defense. The new Rage Berserker introduces skills that generate or consume rage with certain attacks improving movement speed and attack damage.
