Path of Exile Previews Experimental Graphics Improvements

By Rebecca Smith, 9 months ago
The team at Grinding Gear Games is experimenting with visual upgrades for their free-to-play MMORPG Path of Exile. If you enjoyed the improved Burning Ground effect and burning grass then you'll be pleased to know that these upgrades are being developed by the same team members who were responsible for those. The team has released a video giving a preview of what players can expect:


The team is prioritising improving the appearance of the title while also trying to improve its performance. The graphical upgrades are still very much in their experimental stage, meaning there is no set timeline for implementing them into the game, although they fortunately haven't had a "negative performance impact" on the game in its current form.

At home, with a variety of PCs and consoles on hand from which to choose, starting with a ZX Spectrum, games are never far away there either. However, as you're not supposed to have an unhealthy obsession with just a single subject, she also likes to read and dream about owning her own tribe of minions. She'll occasionally go outside.
