Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition is now upon us, but it might as well be called "definitive edition". Read our review to find out why - click here!

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.

Sure is Carson, which is why I recommend planning before you start your first character, or better yet play around with one character and then dedicated a second to a build you want. You can have a max of 24 characters for free, and you cna reset your skills at max but it costs quite a lot to do.

I would definitely recommend anyone wanting to itch the hack 'n slash urge to try out the beta, it is quite a nice looking and well-polished game.

NZ game with ... American, Euro and Singapore gateways only? :(

Enska, those chars should still exist, they're just not on the main league. I hopped on the other day and still had all my chars in there from ages ago.

And Hog, the game runs fine on all those gateways. I've not had issues with lag, though I seem to recall discussion of them releasing a more Aussie located server if the game takes off.

Could be mixing up games, though, to be honest. *shrug*
