Path of Exile: Necropolis will simultaneously launch on PC and Console soon! In this news post, we've gathered all the information you need to know about what happens on launch day and how to start downloading early.

The PC and Console realms will go down and patching begins at: Mar 29, 2024 12:00 PM (EDT)
The servers go live for PC and Console at: Mar 29, 2024 3:00 PM (EDT)

The above times are displayed in your local time zone. You'll need to be logged into your account to see these. To change your local time, go to "My Account", "Manage Account" and "Edit Preferences".

If the timezone is displaying incorrectly for you, please disregard the above timer and refer to the countdown on the front page. Three hours before the end of the countdown, the realm will go down and patching will begin shortly after. When the countdown ends, the servers will be live and you'll be able to join the Necropolis League!

The patch size for the update will be around 5.8GB on the standalone client and 5.8GB on Steam. The estimated size of the patch for Playstation and Xbox One S/Series S is 8GB and the estimated size of the patch for Xbox One X/Series X is 12GB. We've also made a torrent available for this update which is around 39GB. The torrent is only available for PC. Please keep in mind that this method, while available earlier, makes it a larger update as it includes all the existing client content. When patching begins for Path of Exile: Necropolis you'll also have a few remaining files that you'll need to update as well.

This torrent only includes the GGPK file, so you'll need to copy it into your actual install folder once the patching server is up, no earlier than three hours before Path of Exile: Necropolis launches. Please note that you can't use this GGPK file with the Steam client, Epic client and macOS.

This is also your last chance to get Affliction Mystery Box! It will leave the store when our next Mystery Box becomes available! Keep in mind that if you haven't taken advantage of it yet, it's still possible to get one free Affliction Mystery Box when you spend any amount of points in the store. NOTE: this is only possible once per account. Additional purchases do not grant additional mystery boxes. If you need some extra points, we recommend checking out the new Necropolis Supporter Packs.

In case you still haven't decided which build to play with, check out the Class subsections on the forum for suggestions from the community. Many of our community streamers are also providing build guides on YouTube!

If you want a new look to match your build, check out the Nexus stores of your favourite creators for their curated selection of Armour Sets to support them as well as the development of Path of Exile!
