Exiled. Abandoned to fate in some God-forsaken land. The path you walk is a razors edge, where death awaits your first misstep. Enemies claw at you, gnashing their teeth or calling forth dark, demonic magics; at least one thing is certain: you will not go quietly, you will not die alone. Path of Exile is a gritty, new Action Role Playing Game from New Zealand based studio, Grinding Gear Games. Path of Exile combines bone-shattering, monster-slaying action with in-depth character customization. 

Players can pick from six playable character classes, which each focus on either one or two core attributes: Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence. 
Active skills are gained in the form of levelable gems and passive skills are chosen from a huge, shared skill tree with over 1300 nodes.
Randomly generated items and world areas guarantee that no journey is the same; and fast-paced PvP action lets you cooperate with, or conquer, players from all over the world. Path of Exile is completely free and never "Pay-to-Win". 

There are various ways to support us which will grant you many different perks.

This looks like what Diablo 3 should have been, and better.

I'm usually not into games like this;I wasn't impressed with Diablo 3 when it came out. Even when I'd seen my brother playing it, I wasn't surprised to see how unappealing the game looked to me, and I'd much rather play Skyrim or ChronoTrigger. Be that as it may, this is making me change my opinion on games of this style and genre. I've only seen a bit of one of the gameplay videos, and for some reason it looks to me like it's much better than Diablo 3. My interest in it is increased by the fact that it's free and not pay to win, and I'll definitely give this a try when it's released
