This weekend we hosted ExileCon. We had more than 1100 international attendees plus a large New Zealand contingent (including our full development staff). We tried very hard to recreate Wraeclast at the venue, and had a great time entertaining our guests with presentations, interviews, impromptu Einhar appearances and the card game. Today's news post is a recap of some of the awesome memories from ExileCon.

The Aotea Centre in Auckland Was decorated in a true Path of Exile style with stained glass windows from the Chamber of Innocence, a Map Device table, a giant Hangman's Tree and a statue of the Hooded Figure, an NPC from Path of Exile 2.




We announced four projects at ExileCon: Path of Exile 2, Path of Exile: Conquerors of the Atlas and its accompanying Metamorph Challenge League and the experimental Path of Exile Mobile game.

Path of Exile 2 is a new seven-act campaign, sitting alongside the original Path of Exile 1. The initial campaign will still be fully playable and we'll continue to maintain it with updates and improvements. We'll be posting more information about the ongoing development of Path of Exile 2 and its systems over the next year. In the meantime, check out its announcement page and a trailer here.


Our next expansion is called Path of Exile: Conquerors of the Atlas and it will change the entire endgame system in Path of Exile by introducing a new Atlas storyline and five new endgame bosses. The Conquerors of the Atlas and its accompanying Metamorph Challenge League launch in less than a month, on the 13th of December (PST)! In the coming weeks we'll tell you more about changes to the Atlas system, new Bow Skill and Support Gems and new endgame bosses in the news. Starting from next Monday we'll be posting teasers until the launch day. While you're waiting, watch the 3.9 trailers and have a look at the announcement pages here.

Over the two convention days, we held more than a dozen various panels with presentations and interviews featuring our developers, community streamers and our special guests.



Some of these were streamed live, but we couldn't cover everything on the livestream, so we had each of the panels recorded for you to watch in the future. We're still sorting out all the video footage (over 30 terabytes of data!), so we'll be posting VODs of developer talks and interviews in the news over the coming weeks. If you'd like to rewatch everything that was livestreamed, there are two videos available at our YouTube channel (first day, second day).

Attendees also got a chance to chat with community streamers, GGG founders and Path of Exile voice actors at Meet and Greet stage.



As you may know, we also created the ExileCon Card Game as an icebreaker for attendees to engage with GGG staff members.




The card game became an absolute hit amongst both attendees and our staff. We had a blast playing it all weekend!

ExileCon concluded with tie23he, Waggle, tytykiller and Havoc facing each other in the epic Race Finale.


tie23he won the race, demonstrating his insane Path of Exile speedrunning skills, with Havoc and Waggle finished at 2nd and 3rd places respectively. Congratulations and thank you for a great race!


Thank you to everyone who attended ExileCon. It was great to finally meet you all! You are all amazing and we've had so much fun talking and playing the card game with you! Thank you to viewers of our livestream. Without all of you the event like this wouldn't be possible. Until the next one!

Forum moderation is pathetic.

There's nothing I regret more [PoE-wise] than starting to read this forum because of Charan's posts. I'm extremely happy he left, because that made me leave too; I wish him well IRL and to never come back here.
Dear GGG,

We've never met but I love you.
