Latest Path of Exile Expansion, Synthesis Announced for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4
Auckland, New Zealand - February 19, 2019 - Grinding Gear Games announced today the first expansion of 2019 for their award-winning RPG, Path of Exile: Synthesis. This new expansion will be available worldwide on March 8th, 2019 for the PC and Xbox One. Additionally, Synthesis will mark Path of Exile's long-awaited debut on the PlayStation 4.
In Path of Exile: Synthesis, players will meet Cavas and help him recover his lost memories by fighting their way through them and then stabilising them to collect a fragment of that memory.
These memory fragments can be combined together to synthesize dangerous and unstable new areas to explore for valuable rewards, including Fractured Items, a new type of rare item that has some of its properties locked in place. Players can combine Fractured Items in a device to create a Synthesized Item - a very powerful crafting base type that has implicit properties influenced by the Fractured Items consumed.
