Ladies and gentleman it’s time to prepare your trigger finger because the action RPG Path of Exile has now officially -wait for it- launched!
The start of open beta means no further content wipes allowing players to begin tackling the games absolutely massive skill tree (which some may call a forest) without fear of having to start over. The update to open beta also brings with it an additional 50 percent more content in the form of a brand new act. Players can now experience Act 3 in its entirety, where they can explore 21 new areas including abandoned docks, markets, temples and sewers in the ruined city of Sarn in order to uncover the dark truth of their exile. The new act also brings an additional 18 completely new monster types and over 90 monster variations. Talk about variety!
The update to open beta is fairly massive for an ARPG, clocking in at 1.53GB. The game’s servers and website are apparently under extreme load right now but if you wish to try the game for yourself you can do so here.
