Path of Exile, the free-to-play action RPG from Grinding Gear Games, has officially launched today, ending the open beta after nine months. Everything from the new Scion prestige class to new gems, monsters, areas, and PvP game modes have been added to the game to celebrate the occasion. There are also the Domination and Nemesis challenge leagues to give players varying degrees of difficulties to really push their skills.
The new Scion class sounds pretty unique, as she has aspects of all three attributes (Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence) instead of being focused on just one or two. She won't be as specialized as some of the other classes, but should certainly allow players to experiment with unique customizations. However, you have to beat Path of Exile's campaign on Normal difficulty to unlock her, but she should be well worth it.
Anyone interested in trying out Path of Exile can download the game from the PoE website or on Steam. There's no cost associated with the game, but there are various items to buy if you want to help support Grinding Gear. The Open Beta Support Packs are only going to be available through midnight Pacific today, so if you want a Baby Rhoa pet, the digital soundtrack, exclusive forum title, and 200 points (used on cosmetic changes), don't delay. There are other packs to consider too, just their prices are higher.
