Win crazy prizes for killing monsters better than anybody else.

Path of Exile is, as you know, a very impressive ARPG from New Zealand developers Grinding Gear Games. But did you know Path of Exile also holds race events, where players can compete in leagues either on their own or as a team, to see who can get the furthest in the game or score the most points for specific objectives?
Some of these races last just for an hour, while some can go as long as a week — and at the end, winners can expect to be rewarded with sweet, sweet prizes.
The first of these events to take place during the beta is about to kick off in just ten hours, and it’ll be an hour-long race, and there are heaps of prizes on offer. The player with the most experience overall can win a prize, as can the player with the most experience by class, as well as quest prizes and full-clear prizes for completely clearing specific areas.
If you’d like to take part, make a new character (make sure you assign it to the right league when asked) and get ready to play. Character creation for these event leagues opens up about 30 minutes prior to start time. Click here for more info on how it all works.
If you haven’t got Path of Exile installed, I’ll bet you can grab it from our file library and have it going before the race begins.
