Grinding Gear Games has announced a new content update for Path of Exile that brings the game up to version 2.3.0. The new update will release on June 3, 2016 and marks the inception of both a Standard and Hardcore version of the Prophecy Challenge League. Additionally, players will get to check out a host of new skills, items, and challenges to prolong their experience with the action RPG.

In the new update, players will encounter Navali, a Karui soothsayer, in each town as they explore Wraeclast in the Prophecy leagues. Paying this NPC a bit of silver will offer players a glimpse of the future, divining a Prophecy for players to fulfill. Basically, she’s a new questgiver. The prophecies will take players to far-off reaches of the continent and pit them against difficult foes.

Celebrating the release of the content pack, the developer is offering a Prophecy Supporter Pack. Priced at $60 and including 500 points, the Prophecy Supporter Pack represents over $100 of value and contains:

  • Prophecy Shroud Armor Set
