Path of Exile 3.4 is on track to be released on August 31, 2018. From what has been released, we know players will have an “infinite” dungeon to explore. The only problem is you must be near light or the darkness will get you. Light can come from the crawler you follow in the dungeon or flares which allow you to explore areas away from the crawler.
I tend to like more of the monsters appear in maps and acts such as Abyss and Incursion, but I will definitely be playing anyway, even if I decide to skip the league mechanic.

Delve Challenge Rewards
Like other leagues, you get rewards for finishing a certain amount of challenges. For Delve, 12 challenges will reward you with a canary pet. You will receive an Azurite back attachment at 24 challenges, and Delve portal effect at 36. They also hint towards rewarding pieces of a Delve Totem Pole hideout decoration for challenge completion.

Hopefully Delve is as exciting to play as it is to read about. I will give it a go, but it seems a lot like Beastiary which was quite unpopular. However, you can always skip the league mechanic and continue to play this awesome game.
