Path of Exile ( the real Diablo 2 sequel)


Path of Exile is basically a completely free to play online game, basically like Diablo 2.5 but only online ( no offline content). They are currently in Closed Beta, but anybody can get an invite if they register, and if you want to increase your chances of getting one then post on the forum. If not, the Open Beta will most likely start around June to July.

You can also choose to make a few pre-purchases, available only during the CBT:
https://www.pathofexile.com/purchase/

There are very interesting changes and additions here. For one, the whole passive skill system is available for every class, but each class starts nearer the more useful skills for them. Your spells/abilities will be available once you have a skill gem needed for it and put it in the correct socket in any of your socketed items. You will be allowed to remove and add them anytime you want, so the customization level here is amazing. The skill gems level up with the experience you gain from your character ( meaning you don't have to specifically use the gems, just keep them on you).


Note: the game looks better now than in the trailer. The trailer was from pre-CBT gameplay.


Their business model is similar to LoL, meaning there will be only visual purchases and nothing that gives a player any sort of ingame advantage:

Path of Exile is completely free to play - no upfront costs or monthly fees are required to enjoy 100% of the game content.
To fund the development and maintenance costs of the project, we plan to let players purchase aesthetic perks for their characters such as:
  • Additional character animations (for example, taunts or PvP victory animations)
  • Dyes and item skins
  • Alternate spell effects
  • Social pets
We will also offer some optional paid services such as:
  • Inter-realm/inter-account character transfers
  • Character renaming
You’ll notice nothing in the list above confers an actual gameplay advantage.
