Path of Exile leaves beta and is now officially released, new classes and leagues added

Path of Exile

By on October 24, 2013 at 10:31 am

Free-to-play ARPG Path of Exile, developed just over the Tasman in New Zealand, has been turning heads all across the internet with its impressive brand of customisation and stab-and-loot gameplay. Now, after something like two years of public testing, Grinding Gear Games are finally releasing their creation, officially, to the world.

With the final release comes a new Prestige Class, the Scion, who is only available to experienced players who have completed the game on Normal difficulty in any league. The Scion is an intensely customisable class who can build in almost any direction, but lacks the highly advanced specialisation of other classes.

Two new four-month challenge leagues, Domination and Nemesis, are also launching today. In Domination, players have to deal with new shrines surrounded by large groups of monsters who gain powers from the shrines. Nemesis is a hardcore league, where Rare monsters have one guaranteed mod from the Nemesis Pool and all battles are much, much harder.

You may also be interested to know that Path of Exile is now on Steam — you can find that here.

Woohooo!

Also with the release to steam is achievements if that is you sort of thing. And you don’t have log in twice. you log into steam and it automatically logs you in path of exile.

 

There is Australian servers as well. Feels good.

 

giblet1,

They have been available for quite a while now.

 

1 new class does not equal ‘new classes’.
I call editorial bias!
:P

I know, I’ve played on them when they were testing them. I was just adding it in there seeing as the article didn’t mention it, which would have been nice seeing as we don’t get local servers for Diablo 3. These guys went that extra mile. My hat goes off to them.
