Path of Exile free PC game is an action role playing game for the PC released in 2013 by Grinding Gear Games. It is a free-to-play title which provides the option of microtransactions using real money. As Grinding Gear Games states in their FAQ, “Path of Exile is 100% free to play, for everyone forever.” You can spend real money on microtransactions but these are completely optional. If you do decide to spend money you can receive some in-game perks and cosmetic upgrades. These perks and upgrades though do not offer any advantage over non-paying players.
The setting of Path of Exile is a dark fantasy world. The game-playe is similar to that of the Diablo series of games. You will control a character from the top down perspective, exploring a wide array of settings. Settings you’ll see include wilderness or outdoor environments, underground caverns and dungeons. During these adventures players will battle all sorts of monsters in an attempt to complete the game’s objectives and many side quests. As is standard in most role-playing games, players will earn experience and equipment as they defeat enemies and complete objectives.
Path of Exile Features
There are a number of great features in Path of Exile including a robust character creation section. Character creation allows for six different character classes with one additional class unlocked during play. Each class is aligned with specific core attributes of Dexterity, Intelligence and Strength. While these attributes provide bonuses, you will not be tied to one class based on abilities. You may try to build skills in nearly any discipline with the Path of Exile character creation process.
The story of Path of Exile, similar to Diablo, is broken into Acts which contain areas to explore and quests. There have been four acts released so far. These include more than 70 different areas to explore. There are tentative plans to release 10 acts in the game.
Path of Exile includes both a single player and multiplayer game modes for you to play. You can join multiplayer games with up to six other players in a single adventuring party. Adding party members however can make things more difficult for you and your friends. You may see monsters can have greater amount of hit points as well as changes to the loot found. This is all to balance out the power of the adventuring party.
Path of Exile is considered a beta release as of this writing. That being said, it is very stable and has a large player and fan base.
