The 3.13.0 expansion, the Echoes of the Atlas, launches in less than a day!
In this news post we’ve gathered all the information you’ll 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: Jan 15, 2021 5:00 PM (GMT+1)
- The servers go live at: Jan 15, 2021 8:00 PM (GMT+1)
Meaning that you will be able to play the 3.13 league starting at 8:00PM GMT+1, after enterting the inevitable login-queue! The Queue usually opens up around 20-30 minutes before the Servers go live, so early birds will be able to play a few minutes earlier than most! ;)
The patch size for the update will be around 13GB on the standalone client and Steam.
There is also a torrent available for this update. Please keep in mind 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: Echoes of the Atlas you’ll also have a few remaining files that you’ll need to update to.
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: Echoes of the Atlas launches.
Please note that you can’t use this GGPK file with the Steam client and macOS.
Path of Exile: Echoes of the Atlas on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will launch at Jan 20, 2021 9:00 PM (GMT+1) or at 12pm January 20th (PST).
For those of you who want to compete with other players in the upcoming expansion, Zizaran has organised the HC SSF Maven Kill Event which starts alongside the release of the expansion!
The prize pool includes $40,000USD cash as well as microtransaction prizes.
The above post will also be updated with an additional prize pool for console players next week.
