New Zealand developers Grinding Gear Games have been working on Path of Exile for a long time now. Starting work back in 2007, it entered open beta in January this year and if you haven’t checked it out yet you absolutely should. A free-to-play Action RPG (think Diablo), it features an enormous and complex skill system, as Patrick found when he went hands on with it in January. And now it is just 16 days away from officially being released.
As Shacknews has noted, along with its official release Path of Exile will add six new areas, six new Trigger Gems, three new Skill Gems, more bosses and the new Scion prestige class. As a prestige class, the Scion can not be used until you’ve finished the game once, but she offers some unique advancements over the standard player classes – instead of starting on the side of the skill board, she starts in the middle – so planning out an effective character will require a good bit more thinking.
The official release of Path of Exile doesn’t mean Grinding Gear Games are going to stop adding to it however – they have plenty more content planned. The entire article is well worth reading, so check out the link above or this one right here and if you’d like to play the game you can do so via the official site.
