* ''[[https://www.pathofexile.com/oriath The Fall of Oriath]]'' is scheduled to release in Summer 2017, introducing a massive storyline extension with Act Five situated in the exiles' homeland of Oriath, and Acts 6-10 which are based on the previous five acts. The Exiles return to Oriath to liberate it from the tyrannical rule of High Templar Avarious, but things take a dark, unexpected turn when the dark god Kitava, freshly reawakened by the death of the Beast, hatches a sinister scheme to consume the souls of all mortal life. Meanwhile, the original gods of Wraeclast are awoken by the death of the Beast and plot to take their vengeance on the mortals who had forgotten them. This streamlines the experience and level progression into a single play-through, removing the Cruel and Merciless difficulty levels in the process. In addition, a new Pantheon system is available that confers swappable passive bonuses.

Now comes with a [[Characters/PathOfExile character page]] currently in the works.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Fall of Oriath'', [[spoiler:Utula, one of your main allies in Act 5, turns out to be a Kitava zealot, and only wanted you to kill Avarius so he could summon his dark god and unleash his minions onto the weakened Theopolis.]]

** [[spoiler:If you look carefully right after defeating Piety in the Lunaris Temple, you'll see a strange portal form that sucks her body into it. Act 4 reveals that this was Malachai pulling her into the Beast so he could mutate and brainwash her for his own ends.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TemporaryOnlineContent: Averted with in regards to unique Leagues. Most unique League content, such as Rogue Exiles and the Prophecy system, are added to the core game after their League ends, and even content that doesn't can usually still be found in Maps with the right modifiers.

Added DiffLines:

** "The Fall of Oriath" expansion has this two fold, stinging even more since the actions that cause them were entirely heroic. [[spoiler:First, killing Dominus is revealed to have engulfed Oriath in chaos as a brutal war wages between the revolting Karui slaves and the legions of the new High Templar, with the city's innocent civilians caught in the middle. Second, the deaths of Malachai and the Beast end up causing the original gods of Wraeclast to return, and it quickly becomes clear that they are ''not'' friendly.]]
