By | April 12th, 2023 | Categories: Path of Exile

Path of Exile’s Crucible League has been live for several days now, and many gamers have been enjoying the expansion so far. The latest update has seen the active players skyrocket according to the latest statistics. However, console users have yet to experience the intricacies of the new mechanics. Fortunately, Playstation and Xbox players can play the new Crucible League very soon on their accounts.

When Will PoE Crucible League Come to Consoles

While the Crucible League has been available since April 7 (PDT), not every platform could play right away. The initial release was only available for PC and Mac users, so console players could not participate in the first few days of merriment. Fortunately, the release of PS4 and Xbox is not that far, so gamers can soon check out the latest expansion. Here is the release date for the Crucible League for consoles:

  • April 12 8:00 PM (EDT)
  • April 13, 8:00 AM (GMT+8)

Players should note that the downtime for the console release will occur around three hours before the patch. If you still have some unfinished business in the previous League, then you should wrap things up before the maintenance. 

What You Should Know About the Crucible League

The latest League introduces the Crucible mechanic, which will allow players to take their weapons to newer heights. Players can discover various forges throughout Wraeclast that will allow Exiles to channel the powers of the ancient Titans. Gamers should be prepared for the process is not without danger as hundreds of molten monsters will try to disrupt you. If you do manage to succeed in using the forges, you will be given access to various skill or vendor passive abilities for your weapons. 

Aside from the new League mechanic, there are also tons of other changes being introduced to the game. These things include a new set of Unique items and skill gems. If you are one of those people who likes to collect named weapons and equipment, then you should check out the following:

New Skill Gems

  • Snipe
  • Vaal Animate Weapon

  • Vaal Ice Shot

New Unique Items

It should be noted that these are not the only new changes to the game. There are also some overhauls to the Breaches and Abyss features. There will also be some improvements to the Saboteur and Pathfinder Ascendancies. The Atlas Passive Skill Tree will also get a new feature called Gateways that will allow players to access nodes at the opposite end without any connecting skills. 

How Good is the Crucible League?

Path of Exile’s Crucible League is turning out to be one of GGG’s most successful and popular releases in recent years. While the previous Forbidden Sanctum did find some degree of success compared to its predecessors, this expansion has seen a dramatic increase in active players based on recent statistics from Steam Charts.

Path of Exile has allegedly hit around 321,189 concurrent players, which is a far cry from the game’s average of 50,000 per League launch. While the hype around the Crucible update has died down a bit, the game still maintains around its average player count. Some have attributed the increase in people trying out Path of Exile to the post-beta feelings that Diablo IV has left.
