Path of Exile To Launch Oct. 23
Path of Exile's been simmering for a while, but now it's just about ready to come to a full boil.
Grinding Gear Games' free-to-play action RPG will officially release on Oct. 23, and it won't just be the final refinement of what's currently in the game. The launch will add a new prestige class, the Scion, which will have access to a greater range of skills and abilities than any of the game's other classes, as it starts near the center of PoE's enormous skill grid. You can see her in action in the launch trailer, above. Veteran players will have new areas to explore and a slew of new and horrific beasts to slay.
For PvP lovers, rapid-fire tournaments, both for individuals and for guilds, will be added, as well as a capture-the-flag mode. An improved means of trading -- which probably won't be a full auction house -- as well as a possible mobile app, is also in the works, but probably won't be added until after launch.
