Indie Windows game Path of Exile will come to Steam October 23, 2013. Path of Exile is a free-to-play action-adventure game that looks pretty interesting. The system requirements don’t look too rough, which makes the game accessible to many Windows PC gamers. One feature that caught my eye, aside from the massive amounts of customization that are said to be available, was the “fair-to-play” feature. The makers of the game, Grinding Gear Games, state on the game’s Steam page that you won’t gain any gameplay advantage through pay items, that they want the game to be fair to everyone.
Key features and system requirements (taken from Steam page):
- Freedom. Power. Revenge.
Banished for your misdeeds to the dark, brutal world of Wraeclast, you play as the Duelist, Witch, Ranger, Templar, Marauder, Shadow or the newly added Scion class. From forsaken shores through to the ruined city of Sarn, explore Wraeclast and uncover the ancient secrets waiting for you.
- Unlimited Character Customization
Create and customize hundreds of unique skill combinations from tradable itemized gems and our gigantic passive skill tree. Combine skill gems, support gems and trigger gems to create your own unique combination of power, defense and destruction.
- Dressed to Kill
Path of Exile is all about items. Find, collect and trade magic, rare and unique items with arcane properties, then customize your character build around the deadliest combinations you possess.
- Brutal Competitive Play
Battle in PvP tournaments seasons and Capture the Flag events for worldwide recognition. Compete in Daily Leagues and Race Events that run as separate game worlds with their own ladders and economies to win valuable prizes.
- Fair-To-Play. Never Pay-To-Win.
We’re committed to creating a fair playing field for all players. You cannot gain gameplay advantage by spending real money in Path of Exile.
