Path of Exile is a free action role playing game for the PC released in 2013 by Grinding Gear Games. The game is a free-to-play title which provides the option of microtransactions using real money. As Grinding Gear Games states in their FAQ, "Path of Exile is 100% free to play, for everyone forever." The microtransactions offered do cost real money but simply provide in-game perks and cosmetic upgrades that do not offer an in game advantage over non-paying players.

Path of Exile is set in the dark fantasy world and follows a game-play style that is similar to Diablo series of games. Players control a character from the top down perspective and will explore a wide array of settings that include wilderness/outdoor environments, underground caverns and dungeons. During these adventures players will battle all sorts of monsters in an attempt to complete the game's objectives and many side quests. As is standard in most role-playing games, players will earn experience and equipment as they defeat enemies and complete objectives.

Path of Exile also provides robust character creation and customization with six different classes to choose from and one that is unlocked during game play. Each class is aligned with specific core attributes of Dexterity, Intelligence and Strength but players are not bound to skills specific to one class. They may try to build skills in nearly any discipline.

The storyline in Path of Exile, similar to Diablo, is broken into Acts which contain areas to explore and quests. Currently there have been four acts released with more than 70 different areas to explore. There are tentative plans to release 10 acts in the game.

Path of Exile features both a single player game mode as well as a multiplayer mode. The multiplayer mode allows for up to six players to join up and form an adventuring party. Adding party members does have an effect on game play with increased monster hit points and loot to balance out the additional power of the player character adventuring party.

While the game is technically still in Beta, it is very stable and has a very large player/fan base. Path of Exile is free to download and play and is available from Steam or by creating an account on the official Path of Exile site. Currently the game is only available for the PC.
