Action-RPG Path of Exile enters open beta

Act 3 of the game playable

While it feels like we have been overloaded with announcements of betas over the past week and it's all starting to blend together, news that online action-RPG Path of Exile has opened up access to a pre-release build should be very welcome indeed. For those who are already playing the game, rest easy knowing there won't be any more character wipes.

"We've had amazing support from our community throughout development," said Grinding Gear Games producer Chris Wilsonfor. "Their belief in our vision is making is possible to deliver a great game." This is made all the more impressive knowing what can happen when your game doesn't live up to expectations.

I was going to pass on this due to feeling action-RPG'd out right now, but I've encountered increasingly positive buzz surrounding Path of Exile as of late. I'd imagine some of you can attest to that. It'll be that darned skill tree that does me in -- I just know it.
