Years after the initial release, PS4 has finally been graced with Path of Exile and it’s already enormous community.
The game has just hit the PlayStation Store, but if you’re worried that you have been left behind with too much to learn, fear not.
Fans of PoE have been exploring, battling, and sharing with each other since late 2013, leaving behind an absolutely monstrous amount of information regarding the game and it’s deeply complex lore. Just check out the Gamepedia page to get caught up.
LRGaming is running a play-test via Loot-Tube and we will post our PS4 review soon.
Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast. It is designed around a strong online item economy, deep character customisation, competitive PvP and ladder races. The game is completely free and will never be “pay to win”.
Path of Exile began when a small group of action role-playing game enthusiasts became frustrated by the lack of new releases in the genre and decided to develop their own game. It was developed under the radar for three years before being publicly announced on 1 September 2010.
In the time since then, Grinding Gear Games has published a number of development posts on their website ranging from screen shots of new classes, monsters, and skills to presentations of game play or technical aspects.
You are an Exile, struggling to survive on the dark continent of Wraeclast, as you fight to earn power that will allow you to exact your revenge against those who wronged you.
The game is set in a dark fantasy world with the player starting the game waking up on the shores of Wraeclast, a continent that once was the center of a mighty empire but is now a cursed land which serves as a penal colony for criminals and other unwanted individuals from the nearby Island of Oriath.
Regardless of the reasons for their exile, the player must now face the unforgiving wilderness and its dangerous inhabitants amidst the crumbling ruins and bloody secrets of the Eternal Empire and the Vaal civilization that came before, and band together with other exiles to survive.
