Exiled. Abandoned to fate in some God-forsaken land. The path you walk is a razors edge, where death awaits your first misstep. Enemies claw at you, gnashing their teeth or calling forth dark, demonic magics; at least one thing is certain: you will not go quietly, you will not die alone. Path of Exile is a gritty, new Action Role Playing Game from New Zealand based studio, Grinding Gear Games. Path of Exile combines bone-shattering, monster-slaying action with in-depth character customization. 

Players can pick from six playable character classes, which each focus on either one or two core attributes: Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence. 
Active skills are gained in the form of levelable gems and passive skills are chosen from a huge, shared skill tree with over 1300 nodes.
Randomly generated items and world areas guarantee that no journey is the same; and fast-paced PvP action lets you cooperate with, or conquer, players from all over the world. Path of Exile is completely free and never "Pay-to-Win". 

There are various ways to support us which will grant you many different perks.

German review from me: Youtube.com
It's a really great game and reminds of Diablo 2.

It's actually far closer to Diablo III than people are willing to admit. As far as I'm concerned, it's a very good thing. :)
