The new data disc for Path of Exile will bring roguelike gameplay

The old and still popular (and cherished) roguelike Path of Exile will get a new data disc next week, in which its authors will try out the currently very popular roguelike gameplay. The expansion will be called Forbidden Sanctum and will invite players to dungeons full of treasures, but also dangerous traps.

Within the dungeons, you’ll have to go through four floors, each of which naturally has a boss waiting for you. But this is not necessarily the biggest challenge. Far more fundamental problems can be caused by rooms that inflict a certain greater or lesser penalty on your hero. You can deal with them with the help of various objects that will reduce their influence, but definitely do not expect a walk in the rose garden.

Developers from the Grinding Gear Games studio admit that when developing the new data disc, they were inspired by the classics of the roguelike genre, such as Binding of Isaac, but also the original Rogue itself, which gave the entire gaming industry its name. Part of the gameplay will be deciding whether to accept a reward immediately, or rather wait for a better version of it, but with the risk of not being able to get to it.

Relics encountered during individual playthroughs will be tied to the account and cannot be traded. Your character may also come across a special altar where you can “store” the acquired relic in case of failure.

Forbidden Sanctum is released on December 7th. Along with the new content, you can also expect traditional game balance tweaks and bug fixes.
