The launch of the Blight expansion is just around the corner! As always, we've prepared all the information you need to know about what happens on launch day and information on how to start downloading early.
The realm goes down and patching begins at: Sep 06, 2019 1:00 PM (EDT)
The servers go live at: Sep 06, 2019 4:00 PM (EDT)
The above times are displayed in your local time zone. You'll need to be logged into your account to see these. To change your local time, go to "My Account", "Manage Account" and "Edit Preferences".
If the timezone is displaying incorrectly for you, please disregard the above timer and refer to the countdown on the front page. Three hours before the end of the countdown, the realm will go down and patching will begin. When the countdown ends, the servers will be live and you'll be able to join the Blight League!
The patch size for the update will be around 6GB on the standalone client and 11GB on Steam. We've also made a torrent available for this update. Please be mindful 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: Blight you'll also have a few remaining files that you'll need to update to.
You can find the torrent here. The download is approximately 18GB. 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: Blight launches. Please note that you can't use this GGPK file with the Steam client.
Path of Exile: Blight on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will launch at Sep 09, 2019 7:00 PM (EDT) or at 4pm September 9th (PDT). Downtime will begin for deployment at Sep 09, 2019 6:00 PM (EDT) or at 3pm September 9th (PDT).
If you're looking for some extra character slots for your account for launch weekend, we're running a sale on these right now! Additionally, this is your last chance to get Frontier Mystery Boxes! It will leave the store when our next mystery box enters the store! Keep in mind that if you haven't taken advantage of it yet, it's still possible to get a free Frontier 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 Blight supporter packs.
In case you still haven't decided which build to play with, check out the Class subsections on the forum for suggestions from the community. Many of our community streamers are also providing build guides on YouTube.
