About This Game

You are an Exile, struggling to survive on the dark continent of Wraeclast, as you fight to earn power that will allow you to exact your revenge against those who wronged you. Created by hardcore gamers, Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in a dark fantasy world. With a focus on visceral action combat, powerful items and deep character customization, Path of Exile is completely free and will never be pay-to-win.

Key Features

  • Freedom. Power. Revenge.
    Banished for your misdeeds to the dark, brutal world of Wraeclast, you play as the Duelist, Witch, Ranger, Templar, Marauder, Shadow or the Scion class. From forsaken shores through to the ruined city of Sarn, explore Wraeclast and uncover the ancient secrets waiting for you.
  • Unlimited Character Customization
    Create and customize hundreds of unique skill combinations from tradable itemized gems and our gigantic passive skill tree. Combine skill gems, support gems and trigger gems to create your own unique combination of power, defense and destruction.
  • Deadly Missions
    The Forsaken Masters each have their own style of mission and each of these missions has many variations. As you explore deeper into Wraeclast, the pool of available variations increases to challenge you in new ways. All of the Missions and their variations can occur anywhere in the game, including within end-game Maps.
  • Dressed to Kill
    Path of Exile is all about items. Find, collect and trade magic, rare and unique items with arcane properties, then customize your character build around the deadliest combinations you possess.
  • Brutal Competitive Play
    Battle in PvP tournaments seasons and Capture the Flag events for worldwide recognition. Compete in Daily Leagues and Race Events that run as separate game worlds with their own ladders and economies to win valuable prizes.
  • Customise Your Hideout
    ​In their extensive travels throughout Wraeclast, the Forsaken Masters have discovered ideal locations for an Exile to use as their own secret Hideout. Once you've earned a Master's trust, you may be taken to a Hideout, where you can create your own personalised town. Masters residing in your Hideout offer you daily Missions and train you in advanced crafting options. Use your Hideout as a quiet place to craft after battle, or expand it and use it as a personalised Guild Hall with hundreds of decorations.
  • Fair-To-Play. Never Pay-To-Win.

Path of Exile is a lot like Diablo 3 except this game is actually good and not run by a company of money grubbing a-holes.

Seriously though...Grinding Gear Games, you guys are awesome.

10/10 would quit D3 and never go back again.

As I approach 1,000 hours...

This game deserves a review.

I have spent easily $200+ on microtransaction aesthetic content for this game.

BECAUSE IT"S THAT ♥♥♥♥♥ING AMAZING.

I probably played about 500 hours before I even got to true end-game content.

I still havent come close to building every unique character type I would want to yet.

I don't think that would be possible given ANY amount of time.

If you're reading this and haven't tried this game yet, you're DOING IT WRONG.

Play this game. Now.

One of the best free-to-play titles. Microtransactions are entirely cosmetic nothing else. Do try if you like diablo or ARPGS.

After playing this game off and on for almost the past 4 years (since Onslaught league first started) every new update that has come out has never seized to fail me! Everything GGG adds to the game only greatly improves the quality and gameplay of this masterpiece to the point where this game rarely gets boring at all. I've just hit my 1000hr mark on steam and i must say this is definitely one of the best smart and content rich games you will ever play and i don't think i'll be leaving this game anytime soon. Best of all is that with all this great content EVERYTHING is F2P for you to enjoy without spending a single cent.
