For those getting the itchy finger from not clicking enough, Grinding Gear Games has announced an open beta weekend for their upcoming indie hack 'n' slash, Path of Exile.

Currently in closed beta, the New Zealand based team are expecting a large surge of players for the upcoming open beta weekend, comparing numbers in a previous public weekend in May which attracted 48,000 players.
The Path of Exile Beta servers will open for public access at 10am AEST on Saturday, July 28. Public access will end at 5pm AEST Monday, July 30. A full FAQ about the public weekend is available on the official website.

The game has added a host of new features and content recently. The latest version adds a challenging Act Two boss fight, weapon swapping, and a new end-game system featuring Maps whose properties, risks and rewards can be modified by players. There is also a new layout for the game’s passive skill tree which features over 1300 skill nodes, allowing highly customized character builds and hybrid classes.
While the game is currently in closed beta, fans who pre-purchase at least $10 of credit for the games ‘ethical microtransactions’ will receive a beta key. Obviously the notion of a microtransaction store scares some people, but it seems the developers at Grinding Gear Games want to ensure everyone is on an even playing field and that no 'pay-to-win' items ever appear.

If you're interested in the open beta weekend head over to the official website where you can sign up for an account and read all the FAQ's on what to expect. AusGamers also has a local mirror available for the full game client in preparation for this Saturday, which you can find over here.
