Path Of Exile Echoes of the Atlas Sees Record Player Count With New League And Briefs Players On Tech Issues Ahead Of Console Launch.
Path of Exile players had to wait an extra month for their new content drop, and they’re responding by making Echoes of the Atlas the game’s most significant expansion yet. The game’s peak concurrency would be 265,250 players, a record high for PoE, even if the launch was a little rocky.
Grinding Gear Games has deployed six hotfixes since the launch of Path Of Exile Echoes of the Atlas, summarized in a post on the site. Reaction to the Ritual League has been “largely very positive,” and GGG detailed some of the league’s feedback, including why some requested features weren’t implemented.
The rest of the post covers the bugs and technical problems that players have found and what GGG is doing to deal with them. The developer is particular isn’t a problem is the improvements to texture streaming that were recently implemented, as they were meant to help players with lower-end computers. If you’re loading into an area slowly, GGG advises that the issue is alternately due to a memory leak or another strange problem.
The console launch for Echoes of the Atlas is actually today, January 20.
