Grinding Gear Games' free-to-play action-RPG Path of Exile is finally leaving beta waters for a full launch today, and do so via Steam and other digital platforms. It's made by a New Zealand indie studio.

New content is planned to rollout every two weeks and includes new skills, gear, support gems, gameplay balancing, bug fixes and microtransactions. It's a Diablo-style action-RPG.

Arguably all action-RPGs are delivered in 'Diablo-style'. Grinding Gear are also scheduling a "substantial" expansion update every four months.

Best of all it's free to try it out so no risk to us! Check out the Path of Exile Steam store page for more.

Anyone who was disappointed with "Diablo III" owe it to themselves to download this gem and give it a burl. It's tremendous fun with a map that would make "WoW" gamers envious.

+1 on that Einstein :) It is a very good game, definitely better than Diablo III.

If nothing else it doesn't look as cartoony.

Just downloaded and installed through Steam, after uninstalling my beta release. Simply Log-in, receive an email to link your account with Steam and away you go. Your character(s) and progress have all been saved and linked. No starting over unless you want to.

I'm automatically wary when they say F2P. It looks alright tho, so I'll prolly check it out.

The only money you "need" to spend is on cosmetic gear, so if you can withstand that spanking new scarf or head band, you'll be fine.

Now that's the kind of F2P I like! Only pay for purely cosmetic items and nothing game changing. I was definitely disappointed with Diablo III so I'm going to give this a whirl then!
