Path of Exile Content Update 2.3.0 and Prophecy Challenge Leagues Launches June 4
Grinding Gear Games announced the launch of the newest content update for Path of Exile on June 4. This update includes the "Prophecy Challenge League," which will be playable in both Standard and Hardcore modes, both with similar content.
The "Prophecy Challenge League" will replace the "Perandus Challenge League," which was launched back in March 4 along with the Ascendancy expansion. The theme for this challenge league is all about prophecies told by a Karui Soothsayer named Navali.
For a silver coin, Navali can tell the future of those brave or foolish enough to venture into the most dangerous parts of Wraeclast in search of wealth and power. You can get a silver coin from a random monster in each area within the league.
There will also be 40 challenges that can be completed for various rewards, as well as 9 new unique items exclusive to the league. Other new content such as new non-exclusive items and skills, as well as improvements to the Labyrinth, will be added through 2.3.0 as well.
Technical improvements are also to be implemented in this content update. One of those improvements is how the game client will handle memory management, which should significantly reduce instances of "Out of Memory" crashes in older 32-bit computers.
Players should prepare to download the content update soon, as it's at a sizable 2.5 gigabytes. Grinding Gear Games has listed instructions and launch times, as well as patch notes on the Path of Exile official forums.
