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.

Like Diablo 1 ? You will like this!
Like Diablo 2 ? You will like this!
Like Diablo 3 ? You will like this!

Will you like this more then Diablo 2 and 3 ? Doubt it...

A very nice game with a very fun skill tree, might get hard to master if the mistakes in the skill tree are too obvious - and that is a good thing! The game has many good things "ideias" from Diablo 2 - But the game is not Diablo 2 has it own soul and gameplay and a very good ones.

Yet, in my opinion the history is a bit "eh" and starts to be very repetitive after the first time you end the 3 dificulties...

A Good Game to play, and a must for the genere lovers, in my opinion not worth more then 100h, because there is not many more to see.

Overral by far a thumbs up.

The passive skill tree on this game is so big that it halves my framerate when zoomed all the way out

Path of Exile is one of my favorite games of all time. While it has it's problems, the game is updated regularly and GGG tries their best to fix the issues. While there still are a few, all around its a great game for achievement hunters, item farmers, and casual players the like.

I'm a big Diablo II fan, and after playing a bit of Path of Exile, I can freely say that this game is what Diablo III should have been.

Very fun game, often compared to Diablo 2, but this comparison is a lot like saying tf2 is exactly like cs:go. While D2 and PoE are both topdown RPGs, PoE has continuous updates, unique mechanics, and hundred upon hundred of hours of gameplay, mechanics, features, and to top it all off a great economy, fanbase, and even developers. Would highly reccomend to anyone looking for a new topdown RPG experience.

Fantástico! O jogo não é muito amigável para iniciantes, mas depois que você pega os macetes e se aprofunda nele, é um dos melhores jogos do estilo, batendo de frente com diablo 2.

almost 600 hours in the game and still say its wayyyyyyy better than diablo 3. And for the people who are like "Have you ever played diablo?" yes... yes i have, i've played every Diablo that's came out... Diablo 1 and 2 were great games... then 3 came out and i started to hate blizzard... Amazing community, not hard finding friends to play, and guilds?! come on... they are so useful for people. Anyways... I don't wanna make this review too long so i'll end it here.

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.
