Path of Exile Update to Drops Windows XP and Vista Support

Posted time: Jan 31,2019


Grinding Gear Games has recently posted a statement on their forums stating that the upcoming 3.6.0 update to Path of Exile will not support Windows XP or Vista operating systems.

The choice made with the most other game companies including Microsoft and Steam have also ended their support for these systems. Grinding Gear Games said in the announcement, "this will free up technical resources for more other impactful tasks", and then ask users to upgrade to a more secure version of Windows.

Path of Exile will still supports 32-bit client, but also strongly encourages users to upgrade to 64-bit client as soon as possible. It seems that although the plan to stop support for the 32-bit client may be in the progress, it is likely that it will not be put into effect in a short time.

In addition to stopping support for Windows XP and Vista, Grinding Gear Games (GGG) will also exit DirectX 9 rendering mode and switch to DirectX 11. This is because the latter is much faster and able to simplify a lot of code when only supporting one, making the game even faster. This in itself means that players will no longer be able to choose whether or not to disable shadows, as GGG has already said that "Path of Exile's game environments are designed around their shadows. Over time, we have relied more and more on shadows as a critical part of the environment, and so the game without shadows has become very different than the experience we have intended."

These changes will be taking place with Path Of Exile version 3.6.0, which is set to launch in March, 2019. Will you be affected by this change? Welcome to discuss with us and buy poe items at our site igxe.com.
