The Darkness Mystery Boxes will go off sale in approximately five weeks when the Prophecy Leagues end on August 30th. To show our appreciation to everyone who has purchased a mystery box we're making the soundtrack of the Darkness Mystery Box trailer available for free download.

Content Update 2.3.3 is a patch that's exclusively devoted to introducing a new performance feature for players to beta test. This feature should improve frame rate significantly where there is a lot action on the screen. Jonathan, our Technical Director, has created a video showing off the improvements that are possible.
When we launched Path of Exile 2.3.0 alongside the Prophecy Leagues, we added multithreading to the game client in the form of concurrent resource loading. Until now, though, we didn't have multithreading for regular gameplay. (Multithreading is where multiple CPU cores are used simultaneously to perform different tasks, improving the game's performance).
In 2.3.3 we will be adding a command-line option that will let you turn on frame multithreading. This feature allows the game to use more of your CPU cores for regular gameplay. We hope to have this feature enabled for all users in 2.4.0.
As show in the video, in high action situations we have seen performance improvements of more than 2x the regular frame rate when bound by CPU performance.
This is the second round of our performance-focused improvements, but we are not done yet. We still have a port to D3D11 and much more planned for the future.
