Here’s a heads-up everyone, Path of Exile is holding another Open Beta this weekend September 14-16. If you haven’t played the game, it’s an action RPG in the vein of Diablo II but with modern graphics of course. Developer Grinding Gear Games says that a full Beta will be coming in the near future as well.
The game is currently in its 0.9.12 Beta patch, which reportedly adds new skills, additional keystone passives, quest content, and “substantially improved” minions. The team at Grinding Gear Games has also added several unique new items that were designed by Brother Laz who is known for being the mastermind behind the popular Diablo 2 mod Median XL, and also by the projects ‘Diamond Supporter’ fans who donated at least $1000 to the game via the website.

I leave you with a video of what you can expect from Path of Exile if you haven’t gotten to try it yet, I’ve logged about 10 hours in the game and it has been an enjoyable experience overall. I really like how they’ve included social hubs in the game in the form of towns.
