The press release went on and on about all the new features the expansion will bring, I think it would be rude not to share them with you:

  • War for the Atlas: The story: A mysterious entity known only as The Elder haunts the Atlas, spreading decay and battling The Shaper for control.
  • The Atlas, Redrawn: You must find your way to the centre of the Atlas through new paths and discover new challenges along the way. War for the Atlas adds 32 randomized maps to Path of Exile's ever-evolving end-game.
  • New Bosses: Along with deadly encounters at the end of each new map, this expansion introduces the four Elder Guardians, whom you must defeat before you are able to face the Elder himself.
  • New End-game Items: As the war between the Shaper and Elder rages, challenge their control of the Atlas to find exclusive new rare items that have special properties: Shaped Items and Elder Items.
