Path Of Exile: Legion invites players to beat up all of NotValhalla

The Domain Of Timeless Conflict, centrepiece of Path Of Exile's upcoming free Legion update, isn't quite the mead-swilling viking afterlife, but it's close enough to be worth invading and looting. It'll hit Grinding Gear Games's free-to-play action RPG on June 7th and replaces the current (and controversial) Synthesis league. Legion adds a new quarterly source of loot and experience to the world, and permanently overhauls…

Lead Path Of Exile developer says the dev team will not crunch, but sometimes “feel that we are being asked to”

Chris Wilson, co-founder of Grinding Gear Games and lead developer on their free-to-play action RPG Path Of Exile recently took to Reddit to explain the studio’s current workload and priorities, including a healthy work/life balance for their employees. “Some studios make their teams work 14 hour days to pack every patch full of the most fixes and improvements possible,” he wrote. “I will not run…

If you hadn't yet twigged that free-to-play action-RPG Path Of Exile is pretty chuffing popular, developers Grinding Gear Games have made it clear. They've announced ExileCon, an official two-day fan convention dedicated to clicking on monsters until they burst in a shower of bloody gold. Running November 16-17, it'll be a big love-in for folks who attend and bring some big announcements for distant viewers…

Design your own deathtrap today in Path Of Exile: Synthesis

Memories are fragile, ephemeral things, and the new memory-dungeons in Path Of Exile's latest update - Synthesis - start crumbling the moment you look at them. In Grinding Gear's free-to-play action RPG's latest league, players will have to blaze through these new optional areas quickly in hopes of stabilising them, because the reward is the chance to build your own loot-filled labyrinth to raid. This…

Path Of Exile adds DIY Dungeons in the Synthesis league

Crafting has always been important in Path Of Exile, and the Synthesis expansion will let players assemble their own custom dungeons in Grinding Gear's free-to-play action RPG. Due on March 8th and (partially) supplanting the Betrayal league, Synthesis will send players into a fragmented dream-world to recover the memories of Cavas, a new ghostly character. Players will collect dream-dungeon fragments and assemble them on a…

Path Of Exile slaying Windows XP, Vista, and DX9 soon

The tiny fraction of folks still running Windows XP or Vista will soon lose another current game, as Path Of Exile will stop working on them after an impending update. The fine free-to-play action-RPG's developers, Grinding Gear Games, say that "only 0.1%" of their active users use either operating system, which are which are respectively 12 and 17 years old. Grinding Gear also plan to…

Path Of Exile’s side-quest overhauling Betrayal expansion is out now

Path Of Exile is a game in flux - the free-to-play action RPG is constantly being revised or reworked one way or another - last year its main story doubled in length. Today Grinding Gear Games have overhauled just about everything that isn't part of that central quest. The Betrayal league, free and live on the servers now, introduces a new Shadow Of Mordor-ish web of…

Path Of Exile lets players buy extra hard private leagues soon

I'd never describe Path Of Exile as an easy game. I'd even go so far as calling it one of the tougher action RPGs out there, but some of its more dedicated fans just love pain. Announced yesterday and planned to launch some time in the next week, the most masochistic players of Grinding Gear's free-to-play hack n' slasher will soon have the option to…

The Delve league for Path Of Exile is live, featuring an infinite mega-dungeon

It's time to roll up a new character in free-to-play dungeon crawler Path Of Exile, because it's league changeover day. Grinding Gear Games have just mothballed their excellent (if ethically questionable) Incursion league, and launched the Delve league today. This quarterly update adds a literally endless new side-adventure to get distracted by on your quest to murder and loot an entire continent. Better yet, this…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Path of Exile’s time-warping Incursion league goes live

It's all-change day for free-to-play action RPG Path of Exile. Out with the old animal-bothering Bestiary league, and in with Incursion, an even more morally questionable side-adventure for players to work their way through as they level and loot their way across the incredibly cursed continent of Wraeclast. This time we're travelling back through time to murder the heck out of the ancient Aztec-like Vaal…

Tencent grab majority stake in Path Of Exile devs

Changes are afoot at Path Of Exile developers Grinding Gear Games, as Chinese publishers Tencent have bought a controlling stake in the Kiwi studio. Grinding Gear say that Tencent will help them grow and improve their action-RPG, with multiple expansions currently in the pipeline, and insist that the free-to-play game won't become 'pay-to-win'. "We will remain an independent company and there won't be any big…

Path of Exile starts hunting monsters in its Bestiary Challenge League

Though we won't see Monster Hunter: World on PC until chuffing autumn, other games are stepping up to offer opportunities to track and fight big creatures. Fine free-to-play action-RPG Path Of Exile today adds a Bestiary Challenge League, which will challenge players to track, fight, and capture 300-odd monsters. Players can keep 'em in a menagerie to visit, which is nice, or go full Monster…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

It's time for the inhabitants of the intensely haunted continent of Wraeclast to do it all again with feeling. Path of Exile has expanded, with War For The Atlas bringing new content and mechanics to the post-story multiverse, and the Abyss Challenge League adding a (literal) fresh hell to explore.

Path of Exile’s Abyss league promises groundbreaking action

Last week, I got to take an early peek at Path of Exile's upcoming War For The Atlas expansion, set to release free for all on December 8th. As impressive as it looks, it is geared heavily towards the more hardcore end of the playerbase: those who have conquered the main story and hunger for more challenge. For the less experienced or dedicated among us,…

Path of Exile finally has an official (beta) trading hub

Path of Exile is an excellent ARPG built on top of an unusual economy, where every item - even the most throwaway of identification scrolls - has intrinsic value in both usage and trade. There's no gold or even premium currency used in-game at all, and to top it all off, there is no auction house. The only way to exchange gear is direct; player to…

Path of Exile launches expansion The Fall of Oriath today

The free-to-play Path of Exile [official site], Adam's favourite action-RPG, will launch its 'The Fall of Oriath' expansion tonight. This is a big'un, adding Act Five to finish the story and whacking in five more acts based on the regular five to replace the higher difficulty levels. That's a whole lot of monstermashing. The update is due to go live at 9pm so why am…

Path of Exile’s Fall of Oriath expansion hits August 4th

Fine free-to-play action-RPG Path of Exile will launch its next expansion on August 4th, developers Grinding Gear Games announced last night. The expansion, named The Fall of Oriath [official site], will introduce a new act sending players back to the land they were exiled from. Time for some frank conversations with the ruling powers, I'm sure. On top of that, the expansion boshes in remixes…
