New Zealand-made Action RPG click-em-up Path of Exile enters open beta today, and while the beta is available to anyone, its servers are under “extreme load” at the moment and newcomers to the website will have to wait.
The beta went live in the last few hours, only to have their website replace their download link with a message asking excited players to wait patiently while they upgrade their server capacity.
For those who maybe didn’t completely get their itch scratched by Diablo 3, you now have another excuse to click on what you want to die until 3am. The developer’s name, Grinding Gear Studios, might not sound very encouraging, but all the promotional videos leading up to this point have showcased capable gameplay and a very interesting upgrade system, involving 1350 selectable skills. (see below).
You might have to wait a while, though, as Grinding Gear Games upgrades their servers. Interest in the game has spread worldwide, and it’s a little more than they were prepared for.
Check the game out here.
