Path of Exile is ending the year with a bang with not one, not two, but six events. Five of those last for 10 tens while the last one is spread out in three days. Today, we’ll take a quick look at all of them.

Let’s start with Royale, returning for three separate days. For those new to the game, this is sure to excite you. Players familiar with this one still have something to expect since it’s returning with a twist. For this version, Brutus spawns in the center of the safe zone at about eight minutes into the round. The thing is that he’s chained up and inactive. Players looking for a fight can wake him up and see how they fare. Those able to kill Brutus get rewarded with unique item drops. Royale is happening on these days:

  • Day 1
    • Start: December 8
    • End: December 9
  • Day 2
    • Start: December 22
    • End: December 23
  • Day 3
    • Start: December 29
    • End: December 30

For the other five events, here are some of the details:

  • Endless Delve
    • Start: December 3
    • End: December 13
    • Overview:
      • Players begin the event in the Mine Encampment and can’t leave the Mine.
      • All sulphite costs have been removed with Mine scales from level 1 instead of its usual scaling.

  • Endless Heist

    • End: December 27
    • Overview:
