Grinding Gear Games, the New Zealand developer of the much-anticipated action RPG Path of Exile, have announced that its Beta will be open to the public for stress testing this weekend. The game has previously been in a restricted Closed Beta test, and this public stress test will be the first opportunity for many patient fans to play Path of Exile.
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.
Anyone interested in a chance to try out the beta will be pleased to know it's as easy as signing up for an account and waiting until the 31st of March. The beta will allow all players to experience everything that Path of Exile offers, as well as the upcoming 0.9.8 beta patch.
