For those unfamiliar with Path of Exile it's an excellent ARPG game very similar to Diablo made by a small publisher Grinding Gear Games (GGG). Some would say it's the spiritual successor to Diablo 2. Ironically, the Diablo fiasco at Blizzcon 2018 revolved around the new game Diablo Immortal coming only to mobile where gamers felt "betrayed". Well GGG is releasing a new expansion in December called "The Betrayal" where you will hunt down a group known as "The Immortal Syndicate". While at first it seems they are taking a jab at Blizzard, the lead developer on the game clarified that the voice acting for the expansion was completed a while ago and the naming is purely coincidence.

Clearly the gaming gods have a sense of humor.

It's not a bad game, but they really need a better engine.
I don't like the gritty feel and weird animation. The combat doesn't feel fluid.
