Path of Exile Launches for PS4

Grinding Gear Games Action RPG Path of Exile has launched on PS4. Path of Exile is one of those games that is not often in the news but has quietly been improving and growing over the years. Fans always point out the generous free-to-play business model. While, Grinding Gear Games likes to boast about the enormous skill tree and their unique gem system that allows players to customize and experiment with their spells.

Although it has been a few years since I spent any serious time with the game, I am not surprised that it was in Steam’s top ten most played games list for 2018.

PS4 players will not have to wait for extra content. The Synthesis expansion, the first expansion of 2019, has already been ported to PS4.

Auckland, New Zealand – March 26, 2019 – Grinding Gear Games announced today that their award-winning RPG, Path of Exile is finally available for the PlayStation 4.

Path of Exile will be completely free-to-play (and of course, never pay to win; your success in the game is dependent on the depth of your skill, not your wallet). The premiere of Path of Exile on the PlayStation┬«4 will also include Grinding Gear’s first expansion of 2019, Synthesis.

Path of Exile Key Features Include:

  • Download and play for free, but never pay-to-win
  • A dark and deep action RPG
  • Unlimited character combinations with the game’s gigantic skill tree
  • Combine skill gems to create unique combat strategies

  • Cooperate or compete with thousands of other Exiles in a persistent online world
  • Ascend online ladders in every game mode

Path of Exile continues to be one of the largest online Action RPGs with continual, massive audience growth. Successful launches on the Xbox One and in China have more than doubled the Path of Exile player community since August 2017, with over 3.5 million players having played the game’s 2017 expansion, Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath. In 2018, Path of Exile saw an increase in total play-hours of over 26% and the PoE: Betrayal expansion set a new record of 188,970 players online simultaneously.

Path of Exile was released in October 2013 to critical acclaim including winning GameSpot’s PC Game of the Year award. Since its launch, Path of Exile has become a global community of over 20 million players including localized versions in English, German, French, Spanish, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Russian, Thai and Brazilian Portuguese.

I love all things video games. When I am not gaming I am watching the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals, BBQing, and reading.
