For those of you who don't know, Path of Exile is an ARPG being developed by Grinding Gear Games. It's in the style of Diablo 1 and 2, but with plenty of cool things like a skill system similar to Final Fantasy's materia system. It also has a unique flask system which prevents pot spam, and has alternative currencies to gold (gold is near useless in the game and there isn't much gold in it either). It's also free to play, and funded by ethical microtransactions. These microtransactions have NO EFFECT on gameplay, so you can't pay for power. They're more like skins in League of Legends, or hats in TF2.
^ is from a flashback so the entire game isn't all bloomy like that ;o
Now, it IS beta so the UI, for example, is not very nice looking and will be updated. One class is yet to be revealed, and 5 classes have been revealed. The beta will only have acts 1 and 2.
There's an IRC at irc.freenode.net #pathofexile (and twitter and facebook accounts where keys are sometimes given out too :o)
My main problem with this game is that the characters are ugly as all hell. I know it's not a big contributor to the actual fun of the game, but every character and piece of equipment just looks like crap to me The skills also look a little bland.
On the other hand the environments are pretty sweet looking for the most part. Quite atmospheric and for the most part a good mix of colorful and creepy.
Keeping my fingers crossed to get a beta key for that game... kinda stings when you see people there getting a key that have registers like 2 days before the give-away. Either way fingers crossed lets hope to get lucky
Their lead dev has giving away keys on forums and twitter and I missed them by a minute I was refreshing the page so hard and just went a away for a minute and when I came back the "here is 20 keys to forum users" were all gone
