Grinding Gear Games have announced that their F2P online ARPG, Path of Exile, will be coming exclusively to Xbox One in 2017. The Xbox One version of Path of Exile will contain all five previous expansions already available on the PC. It will also contain new content that will be launching for the PC version this year in the upcoming 3.0.0 expansion and the Act V goodies.
Path of Exile launched in 2013 on the PC and it's been a staple goto ARPG for co-op gamers. In the three years since it launched, a consistent amount of content has been released for free while the game supports itself with microtransactions that don't feel cheap or compulsory.
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
- Explore a dark and gritty world rendered from a fixed 3D perspective
- Explore randomly generated levels for nearly infinite replayability
- Craft weapons, magic items, and even end-game maps to
become more powerful
- Cooperate or compete with thousands of other Exiles in a
persistent online world
- Ascend online ladders in every game mode
Grinding Gears currently boasts 16 million players for the game. While F2P games were birthed on mobile and PC, they've found a solid life on consoles with titles like Warframe, World of Tanks, and SMITE finding great success. The exact release date of Path of Exile on Xbox One isn't known yet, but when it launches you'll be able to team up with six other players in co-op.
