We're currently nine weeks into the Harbinger Challenge League and this may have you wondering how long you have left to complete your challenges and what's happening from now until our next expansion launches. Our plans and dates are coming into alignment so we wanted to keep you in the loop about what to expect for the rest of 2017.
Our next expansion (Content Update 3.1.0) will likely launch on Friday December 1st (PST). This is a full-sized Path of Exile content expansion that will also be accompanied by a new challenge league. There won't be a Beta for this expansion as it's roughly the same size as other recent expansions like Ascendancy and Atlas of Worlds. We plan to release the Xbox One version of this expansion as close to the PC one as possible (likely one week after).
下一个赛季可能会在太平洋时间12月1日开放(文中用到will likely)。这将会是一个大的完整的全新赛季。不会存在BETA测试版本，不会像是最近的美工改动这样的小变化。我们会在PC版本结束后尽快开启XBOX ONE版本的新赛季(可能会延迟一周)
You can expect the full announcement of the 3.1.0 expansion around three weeks before its release which means that yes, teasers will start in the coming weeks! A hint for those of you in the know: the challenge league name can be found on that familiar list ;)
This means that the new league and expansion are still 8 weeks away, but don't fret, there will be plenty to do in the meantime! The Harbinger League will end seven weeks from now at Nov 27, 2017 9:00 PM (This is displayed in your local time). This makes it a bit longer than our typical thirteen-week challenge league, but we will be returning to our standard length with the launch of the next league.
If you've already finished your challenges and you're looking for something to tide you over until the launch, we will be running some events in the last month of the Harbinger league. We haven't locked these in yet, but at this point it's looking likely to be a series of one-to-two week events.
We'll be announcing these events next week!
