ExileCon, the first-ever fan convention dedicated to the free-to-play action RPG Path of Exile, kicks off today, November 16, with a keynote address. Grinding Gear Games founder Chris Wilson will be on hand to speak about the future of the game. Among the expected announcements are new expansions and further details about the game's 3.9.0 and 4.0.0 updates. Jonathan Rogers, the other founder of Grinding Gear, will also speak at the keynote address.

The briefing will be livestreamed, and you can watch through the embed here beginning at 10 AM NZDT / 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. GameSpot will have a rundown of the big news as it's announced.

The ExileCon Day 1 schedule also includes numerous panels dedicated to other parts of Path of Exile, including how the team creates the in-game effects and a deep-dive on what's announced during the keynote. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.

Day 2 will also be a big day, as the creators of the original Diablo--Dave Brevik, Max Schaefer, and Erich Schaefer (who have since left Blizzard)--will be on hand for a special presentation. That should be especially interesting in the wake of the Path of Exile announcements and the reveal of Diablo 4 by Blizzard earlier this month.

You can see the full ExileCon schedule here. If you're interested in attending, tickets are still on sale, starting at $180 USD.

Path of Exile was initially released on PC in 2013 before coming to Xbox One in 2017 and PS4 earlier this year. The game is free-to-play, supported by microtransactions.

In 2018, Grinding Gear was acquired by Chinese internet giant Tencent. That company also has a controlling interest in Riot Games (League of Legends) and Supercell (Clash of Clans). Tencent also owns 40 percent of Fortnite studio Epic Games and has a 5 percent stake in Activision Blizzard.

Disclosure: Grinding Gear Games is paying for GameSpot's flight and accommodation in Auckland, New Zealand to attend ExileCon.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
