Forum Index Console Announcements [Xbox One] Path of Exile: Synthesis Launches on Xbox One Soon!

History

In less than 24 hours Path of Exile: Synthesis will launch on Xbox One! Today's news post outlines what to expect tomorrow and a few things to note about the expansion.

The expansion will launch at Mar 11, 2019 11:00 PM (GMT+1) or at 3pm March 11th (PST). Downtime will begin for deployment at Mar 11, 2019 9:00 PM (GMT+1) (two hours prior to launch).

The version that Xbox One users will receive contains the hotfixes which went out for PC users over the weekend.

We mentioned this before the weekend but want to make sure people are aware ahead of time - this expansion will require a full download of Path of Exile. We are very sorry for the inconvenience of having to redownload the entire game. We understand this isn't ideal. The reason the update requires a full redownload is because we've re-worked the file system which is an important change to pave the way for future tech improvements and to minimise potential future memory issues.

Over the weekend we encountered some significant memory problems with the Betrayal content on Xbox One. To make sure we can get the expansion out as soon as possible, we are temporarily disabling Betrayal content on Xbox One. (The only expansion that should have memory problems is Synthesis. Ha-ha, get it? Because of Cavas and his memory lo… nevermind)

Once it's enabled, the Betrayal content will work in a way that is functionally different to PC. When Betrayal is encountered on PC you find three events per zone whereas on console you'll find one event per zone. The Betrayal rewards have been tripled on console to keep the experience in line with PC from a rewards standpoint.

The following aspects of Betrayal will be tripled for console users: the amount of experience received when you make a decision, the amount of veiled items dropped by Syndicate members, Safehouse leaders contribution of intelligence towards the Mastermind, Safehouse rewards. The Mastermind remains unchanged.

We can't wait to share this expansion with our Xbox One players!

Thank you so very much for posting directly to the Xbox one community. And thank you for being thoughtful regarding the full download even though it needs to happen again. I'm so excited for the Xbox one version this league. +1 to zombies can be crafted in the core game again! I like the fix for Betrayal too!

It wouldn't be so bad if Xbox's NZ download servers weren't terrible for me, haha. Still looking forward to playing, thanks guys.

Did you mean to say that you'll be trippling the spawn rate of encounters? Trippling the experience might not be the best way to handle this. Thats cool tho. Thanks for an update.

Nice to see a post in the Xbox forums - thank you.

I am a little nervous about the Betrayal changes and delay - I have really come to like some of those mods and I also appreciated being able to pause with Research ...

I really hope my character is not going to get frequently ganked in maps. I really do not crave/need the extra "excitement".
