New Zealand developers Grinding Gear Games has unveiled a new trailer and countdown in anticipation of the open beta for their upcoming free-to-play hack n' slash title Path of Exile. The open beta will see players crawling all over the world of Wraeclast, but most of all will see the release of Act 3 to the public, allowing for further story progression.
Path of Exile is a PC online action role-playing game set in a dark fantasy world. Featuring ethical microtransactions, the game is free-to-play, but not pay-to-win. Playing as one of six character classes, players find themselves banished for their past misdeeds to the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast. There, they will encounter hundreds of species of opponents laden with loot and mysterious artifacts as they explore the abandoned continent.
For those interested in trying out the game, head over to the official website
to signup for a free account, and wait in anticipation for the countdown timer to reach zero. You can also check out the Open Beta trailer below which gives you a glimpse at act three content and demonstrates some of the game systems.
Path of Exile will launch later this year for PC.
