Path of Exile has filled the island of Wraeclast with danger since the game's official launch. But while the island's monsters, demons, witches, and warlocks all seek out your destruction, one of the greatest dangers is your fellow player. With that in mind, Grinding Gear Games is preparing to refine the game's PvP content with the upcoming 1.3.0 update.

The new update will introduce Leo Redmane, an experienced (albeit disgraced) duelist that will offer players a hideout and some PvP crafting options. After preparing a PvP arsenal, players can take part in new PvP tournaments, including free-for-all, Blitz (centered around rapid-fire duels), and Swiss (which matches up players of similar records). PvP enthusiasts can compete throughout the new PvP Season and earn special loot and prizes.

While PvP is the main focus of the latest PoE update, the new update will also offer other new content. Torment and Bloodlines Challenge Leagues will make their debut. PvE players will find eight new gems and 25 unique items, all sorted across a revamped Passive Skill Tree. Those looking to try out the Passive Skill Tree's new progression builds and filtering functionality will get a one-time opportunity to reset their skill tree and start again from scratch.

The new Path of Exile 1.3.0 content update arrives this Friday. The full list of changes can be found here. For a look at some of the new PvP changes, meet Leo Redmane in the video below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
