    Normally is a good idea to give a video, or link to the website. We have see 90 million korean f2p mmos, and is hard to have curiosity about a new one, and "Path of Exile" sounds like a korean mmo.... oh, is not, is more diablolike. he.

    Path of Exile is a free online-only action role-playing game set in the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast. It is currently under development by Grinding Gear Games in New Zealand. New players are being added continuously to the Closed Beta Test.

    Game Features:

    Completely free to download and play

    A persistent online world capable of supporting hundreds of thousands of players

    A dark and gritty game world rendered from a fixed 3D perspective

    Battle dozens of foes across a variety of unique areas

    Randomly generated levels and items for extreme replayability

    Online ranking and ladders for every game mode

    Visceral combat with dozens of combinable skills

    Battle in PVP tournaments for worldwide recognition


    The skill system is pretty awesome -- skills are found and attached to your equipment, instead of leveled up on a tree (though there's a huge tree of passive skills too).

    I highly encourage anyone with an interest in PoE to check out this podcast, a 30-min interview with the lead designer/developer.

    Small bump in light of the recent RPS exposure. Anyone currently smacking walking corpses with sticks?

    A friend of mine is in the beta. It's quite good, from what I heard.
    Video of the gameplay (him playing).

    Mother of God, that's some huge skill tree. I really wonder how many level ups it would take to fill half of it.

    Got in! It's quite tasty, actually. I no longer have a beta key to spare as well, so send me a PM and I'll shoot it your way.
