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.

Really good game. One of the best f2p experiences available.
Unfortunately, it does have quite a high barrier to entry.

You played Diablo 1 and 2? Liked them? Than play this one, you will not regret it, specially because it´s free to play! (Started playing on a new f2p reserve account, don´t believe the low time played here, i must have around 500+ hours, problably more, the beta non-steam hours i played were not added XD )

Well, where to begin. The game is described as being "Everything we wanted Diablo III to be." Let me just say right off the bat that this game is in no way shape or form anything like Diablo. The only similarity between the two is the birds eye view. This is a "click to move" game no actual movement controls, no option for controller input. It's like a weaker version of classic runescape. Personally I find click to move games tedious and lacking in depth *Clicks mouse, waits for character to move, click enemies to attack and just let it play itself* Seriously disappointed by the misleading description and 2 hour download time. Honestly guys I really wouldn't bother.

When it comes to free-to-play games, PoE has set the bar extremely high. This game is remarkably deep, even when comparing it to top tier paid games. This blew Diablo III out of the water and although I haven't put too much time into it, from what I've seen and read, there is so much more to the game than what I've experienced. The developers have put alot into this and they continue to. This game is a blast! If you jump in, send me a message in game and we can link up for some party play.

This is one awesome action RPG.Additionally it's free.What else would you like to read?I spend many,many hours either in Path of Exile and in Diablo III,but I am not gonna compare them now.The both titles are great,but PoE has one big advantge: IT'S FREE! If you are a fan of Diablo-like games,especially Diablo II then better try it out - you won't regret it.The game has a tone of cool features and the devs are still creating a new content.

It's also worthy mentioning that the GGG support is on of the best I have ever had a pleasure to talk with.

Hi, young female here with 0 gaming experience before this game. My husband is a huge PC gamer and really wanted me to take interest in it. This is the first game I ever looked into and I.LOVE.IT! I downloaded it when it first became available a few years ago and played it all the time. I took a bit of a hiatus after starting D3, but always came back to this game. I still play it to this day and it just gets better and better. I've gotten my husband interested in it, as well. I'm sorry my review isn't very informative, but I'm not an expert in these things. I just know that this game is super fun, has a great storyline, and is for everyone. I definitely recommend!

Have you ever thought "Man I love diablo, but 3 kinda sucked compared to 2" well then this game is for you! It feels so much like diablo it's insane, but has SO much more to offer!
Ontop of it being a great mmorpg with tons of people playing, it has character building none of us could have dreamed of. I mean the passive skill tree alone is MASSIVE, easily the biggest i've ever or will ever see. The amount of different character builds and skills you have to mess around with alone will leave you with hours and hours of entertainment. You'll be remaking and creating new characters for months the combinations are endless, on top of the constant updates and expansions this game will consume your very life.

What are you waiting for, there's a world in here... and they need your help.

This game reminds me so much of all the goodness in Diablo 2. So what has this extra to offer?
Well, first it's not set in the graphics of the Blizzard universe which makes it quite refreshing, both literally and figuratively speaking. There is no gold and the concept of 'weapon value' has been dropped. So what's important? the gems. They give power and magic and they grow as you advance. They can be resocketed and thereby not lost after first use. The skill tree is very impressive which allows your character to evolve to become very unique. Much of the magic is known but there are plenty new tricks and moves (and totems and prophecies). For a free game very impressive. Monster bashing and fireworks to the max.
