Action RPG Path of Exile is hacking-and-slashing its way to the PlayStation 4 in December

Ready to get my grind on.

If you like action RPGs like Diablo and you own a PlayStation 4, I have some good news for you. Path of Exile, from developer Grinding Gear Games (appropriate name, nice) is on the way to the console this December.

If you’re still salty about Diablo Immortal, but want some hack-and-slash goodness that isn’t from Blizzard then this is going to be your best bet. Oh, and did I mention that the game is actually free to play? Well, it is.

More about Path of Exile

I know, I know, ugh free-to-play. Luckily, Path of Exile does it right, you don’t need to spend money to have fun or reach max levels with the game. Money can be spent on things like cosmetics, character slots, and “premium tabs,” which is where gear, money, and things of that nature are stored.

At higher levels, that will probably be something to invest in, but if you’ve been playing that long without spending a time, you can drop a fiver into the game to support it.

The game itself is an action RPG that looks a look like your Diablo-style games and features in-depth skill trees that can heavily influence how your character plays. There are plenty of classes to choose from and with how the skill trees work, you can make some pretty interesting builds to fit the playstyle you’re looking for.

Release information

There is no hard date for when the game will release on PlayStation 4, but the developer notes that a big update is coming on December 7 for the title, so I assume we should see the PlayStation release around that same timeframe.

Path of Exile is currently available for both PC and Xbox One.

Having played a bit of Path of Exile on PC, I’m honestly excited to get the chance to play it on the PlayStation 4 when it releases. Will you be picking it up? Let us know!
