Grinding Gear Games announced that their popular action RPG Path of Exile has recently eclipsed the two million registered players mark, despite having just launched its Open Beta on January 23, 2013. Spurred on by overwhelmingly positive praise from both the media and players alike, Path of Exile is on track to become one of the most popular PC game releases of 2013.
Chris Wilson, producer for Grinding Gear Games said:
“We’re really pleased with Path of Exile’s reception. It blew our expectations out of the water and continues to grow every day. The continued feedback and support from our fans has been great. We expect to add a lot of new content and features during the Open Beta period as we approach full release later this year.”
Grinding Gear Games are currently sticking to a schedule of a content update each week. Recent updates have introduced the new skills Incinerate and Cyclone, as well as adding eight new Unique items, six of which were designed by the game’s Diamond Supporters – fans who had contributed $1000 for the chance to be involved in the development of an item.
Path of Exile is a PC online action role-playing game set in a dark fantasy world. Playing as one of six character classes, players find themselves banished for their past misdeeds to the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast. There, they will encounter hundreds of species of opponents laden with loot and mysterious artifacts as they explore the abandoned continent.
