Path of Exile: Betrayal
In Path of Exile: Betrayal, Jun Ortoi is investigating a mysterious organisation known as the Immortal Syndicate. Help her to manipulate their ranks, reveal the identities of their members, uncover their safehouses and take down their mastermind.
Immortal Syndicate Encounters
The Immortal Syndicate has four divisions, each with its own goals: Fortification, Transportation, Research and Intervention. In each area, you will encounter a Syndicate member. Other members can show up to aid their friends or sabotage their enemies. When the battle is complete, you must decide how to continue your investigation.
Manipulate the Syndicate
There are eighteen Syndicate members, each with their own personalities, friendships and rivalries that change as you manipulate the organisation. You will need to bargain, execute, interrogate and even induce them to betray each other in order to further the investigation.
Raid Syndicate Safehouses
Your goal is to gain intelligence leading to the captains of each division. Raid their safehouses to pillage their supplies and uncover the ultimate identity of the Immortal Syndicate's mastermind.
Each Syndicate member stores different item types in the safehouse. High-ranked members will have better items. Each division has a different twist on item rewards. Manipulate the Syndicate, maneuvering certain members into positions that are going to be the most rewarding for you.
Members of the Immortal Syndicate can drop items with new Veiled Modifiers. Take these to Jun to Unveil the item and pick from one of three properties for the item to receive. As you Unveil specific modifiers, you learn the ability to craft these onto other items and can work towards unlocking higher-level versions of these properties.
New Masters, Familiar Faces
As the Immortal Syndicate ascended in power, the old cohort of Forsaken Masters mysteriously vanished. In their absence, Einhar, Alva, Niko, Jun and Zana have risen as a new group of Masters to aid you. Their league content, including Delve and Incursion, has been added as core Path of Exile content. Bestiary has been reimagined and simplified; Einhar will handle the nets as you focus on hunting the beasts.
PoE has revamped the entire process of Mastercrafting, from the user interface to the way you acquire new crafting options. Individual Mastercrafting options are now unlocked by completing specific content, such as Incursion rooms or Delve encounters, rather than by grinding Master levels.
Unified Hideout System
Hideouts, favour and decorations are now shared across all leagues. You can load and save your hideout templates and share them with other community members.
