No returning to town in this mode.

Path of Exile may look a lot like Diablo in screenshots, but one of its key differences is that the team behind it at Grinding Gear are always trying to spice things up about with the creation of new and unique playing leagues, each governed by special rules and only lasting for a set period of time.
Now Grinding Gear have revealed that the third season of events, which will be fully announced this week, will include a new Descent Mode. In this mode, players can never return to town, or use town portals, or waypoints of any kind. It’s a one-way trip, with its own economy and its own set of high-powered loots and monsters to fight, and at the end of the event it’ll all be wiped and the winner awarded.
50 of these hour-long Descent races will take place during the next season, which is scheduled to kick off on June 29. If you still haven’t played Path of Exile, why not grab the beta client from our file library? It’s free to play!
