For those who are not aware of how the final Path of Exile, it focuses largely on the Atlas of Worlds, a massive network of randomly generated maps that become more difficult as you progress.

Eventually, players will be able to cross the Atlas to the last four maps, each protected by a powerful Guardian. Kill one of them allows you to get The Shaper, the Cthulhu universe of Path of Exile. All this until the 8th of December, the War for the Atlas launch date .
War for the Atlas renews the entire system by introducing 32 new maps, a new layout and a new threat to the Atlas: The Elder. Although they share a vaguely similar name, The Elder and The Shapers are at war and you have to decide which one will win. Wilson is not willing to disclose a lot of information on the reason for all this, for it is a mystery on which the community will have to work together to solve it
When you begin to explore the Atlas of Worlds, you will see stained map portions from The Shaper or The Elder. These are manifested physically in the level, adding more challenges to face.

Completing the maps with a spot of Elder or Shaper, the ripulirai, allowing the other to move and take it. Players can choose to destroy one or the other or try to prevent both the spread and conquer the entire Atlas.
