Mentioned earlier this week, the Diablo style RPG Path of Exile is now offering a open beta weekend for anyone interested in trying out the game.
While it has been quite hard to get into the closed beta, New Zealand developers Grinding Gear Games are letting the flood gates open for this weekend, in hopes of testing out server performance.
In Path of Exile, the player has been exiled from their homeland to the corrupted and deeply hostile continent of Wraeclast. Alone, or with other exiles, they must develop their skills and discover powerful magical artifacts in order to survive the challenges of a cutthroat post-apocalyptic fantasy world.
Path of Exile immerses the player in a gritty and realistic art style that goes against the current industry trend of cartoony RPGs.Our combat is especially visceral, with plenty of blood and gore. Position matters a great amount in our combat system. You can dodge projectiles and be blocked in by monsters.
Whether you're waiting for Diablo III to release or are eager to try out another hack and slash RPG, all you need to do is head over to the official website and sign up for an account. The beta will allow all players to experience everything that Path of Exile offers, as well as the upcoming 0.9.8 beta patch.
Check out the latest trailer below which shows off the Templar, one of six classes available as well as our game page for more. Hurry though, the open beta weekend finishes 5pm on Monday April 1st.
