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.

Brilliant game, with a brilliant community and a brilliant development team. I was never even a hardcore ARPG player before this, but the moment I picked up this game I got hooked and have not looked back since. This will be the hottest thing to hit the gaming scene next year. Give yourself an early Christmas present and join in on the fun in beta. You won't regret it.

I'm an old school gamer and this is the only game I play now. There is no gold but currency orbs, which allow you to craft your own gear. The reason D3 didn't work for me was because of the AH. When you have ALL the items available, there is no sense of connection/growth to your character. This isn't a simple game. The mechanics are so very complex. The skill tree is absolutely mind blowing. Millions of build variety. When you find/craft your own gear by yourself (along with 50+skills that can work for any class and numerous legendary loot drops), you feel MORE attached to your character and you want to progress more and dive more deeply into the mechanics. This game will be free to play when they go Open beta, I don't even understand how a game at this caliber could be free. That's why I'm supporting this game through closed beta, already got Kiwi pack! This is the best ARPG period.

There is little story right now, but enough for a title in this genre (ARPG). Game progresses ridiculously fast these days (patches, custom events, announcements). The devs seem to be under the effect of Unwavering stance :F and everyone is hyped about the upcoming act 3.

This game is great. They may say it's only for the hardcore gamers, but play it and you'll want to be one.
