PS4 Free Game: The Xbox One’s BEST free game is now on Sony’s PlayStation Store
PS4 fans, we’ve got a PSA for you today.
There’s another game you can download and play totally for free today – Path of Exile.
If you’re a fan of dungeon crawling, looting games (think Diablo), then this will be right up your street. The title has already enjoyed quite a good reaction on PC and Xbox One – where it’s been available for a little while now.
Coming from developer Grinding Gear Games, the game is known to free-to-play enthusiasts because it lacks any sort of ‘pay to win’ items or mechanics. Yep, that’s right: it’s an honest-to-God, fair, free-to-play game.
Path of Exile is available on the PlayStation Store right now, and can be downloaded straight away and played immediately – even if you don’t have a PS Plus account.
“Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast,” the developer explains on the game’s page.
“It is designed around a strong online item economy, deep character customisation, competitive PvP and ladder races. The game is completely free and will never be “pay to win”.
The game introduces an interesting ‘skill gem system’, too.
“Action RPGs have always been about two things: devastating skills and valuable items. Skills in Path of Exile are items – gems that grant abilities when socketed into equipment. A wide range of support gems allow the behaviour of skills to be modified.
“You can augment your Fireball to chain from enemy to enemy or split into multiple flaming projectiles. Up to five support gems can affect a skill at any time. Because gems level up independently and some are hard to find, they can be very valuable in trade.”
Additionally, there are frequent live events to keep you doing different things in the game.
“One of the things that’s most fun about playing a competitive online Action RPG is taking part in a levelling race on a fresh server. In Path of Exile, we wanted to capture this feeling without constantly resetting our main economy, so we’ve created a set of race leagues that are run frequently as separate game worlds with their own ladders and economies.”
“In addition to regular races, leagues can substantially modify the game rules. In an Ancestral league, ancient totems exist alongside groups of monsters, augmenting their abilities. In Turbo leagues, monsters move and attack 60% faster than normal.”
You can download Path of Exile on PSN right now.
