Like many developers and teams in the industry, the end of the year and the start of new work provide an opportunity to review everything that has been done in the past year, and Path of Exile is no exception.
In a post on the forum, the team outlined their review of 2019. It starts with a large number of announcements and release-related statistics: We launched four extensions: Atlas' Synthesis, Legion, Wilderness, and Conqueror (cooperating with the Metamorph Challenge Alliance). We hosted ExileCon, our first Path of Exile conference, with more than 1,400 attendees from around the world, including special guests from Blizzard North, community streaming and content creators, and the very real Eihnar Frey And Zana. We announced Path of Exile 2 and Path of Exile Mobile! We partnered with Kakao to launch Path of Exile in Korea. We released Path of Exile on PlayStation 4. Players who want to buy POE Currency can also buy it on the IGGM official website.
The team then went into the statistical model and delved into the following numbers:
We set a record number of online players (224,000 players on our servers alone). In 2019, Path of Exile played 30% more time in the international arena than in 2018. This year, about 8.7 million players have played Path of Exile in our international sphere. Our internal staff has increased from 122 to 147. We have deployed more than 45 updates/patches to our domain. We publish 382 news articles-an average of 7.3 articles per week.
Finally, introduce the community, music and other content: We re-produced the existing Path of Exile soundtrack and updated it with new music. We set a new record for the number of viewers on Twitch. We have introduced a new system that allows you to manage your Master tasks. We praise our players for their amazing talent by hosting four community games. We have improved the caster, melee, necromancer, and dozens of skills redesigned the entire Atlas system and updated the look of Lion's Eye watch.
The post ends by thanking their community and expressing optimism for 2020. I think many players play this game in the new year and need POE Items, please choose IGGM, you will not be disappointed.
