We're proud to announce that Path of Exile will be making its console debut on Xbox One later this year! The Xbox One version is also free-to-play and will contain all the content from the PC version, including the upcoming 3.0.0 expansion that includes Act Five. Check out the Xbox One Trailer here!

Xbox One players will play on their own realm, separate to the PC realm. This is due to small gameplay differences between the two versions, such as the number of Flask slots and how some skills are targeted. We intend to follow the same content and league release schedule on both the Xbox One and PC versions of Path of Exile.

We're really excited about this release. It represents over a year of work from a small strike team within our studio - the guys who also created our DirectX 11 version. We'll announce more information over the coming weeks!


Coming in 2017. https://www.pathofexile.com

For those that don't know, it's a game I've heard that is like if Blizzard had taken the best of Diablo 2 and made it better. Supposedly better than Diablo 3 as well. I was a bit tired on Diablo 3 (playing on PC and a little bit on XBO) and this game is highly recommended on any forum.

I literally just barely started playing it this week via Steam (I've only cleared the first 5 or 6 areas on the map) and the game is good so far, has an insane amount of depth and the depth of build customizations is absolutely staggering.

Anyways, I'll be holding off on playing the PC version and wait for the XBO... unless they offer crossplay or play anywhere type features.

Did I mention it's free to play? $0.

Great news. Played D3 to death, and always read Diablo clones like TQ and PoE were solid alternatives.

Didn't know PoE was F2P!!!!

So I can get my worth playing the game normally as a free game, or is it one of those games where if you don't pay money, it'll be a monotonous grindfest or your player misses out on lots of content, or your player is so gimped you can't really do much.

That's the cool part, from what I can tell (extremely limited time playing) the game is 100% free to play, zero things that you pay for that will adversely affect your playing. As far as I can tell 100% of the microtransactions are for cosmetic things.

Granted, the cosmetic items look cool as all f***.

You also get all the expansion packs as well which is a plus!

Remind me of Sacred 2 .

I love loot dungeon crawler games. I love free. So yeah, I’ll give this a try when it comes out.

The timing is pretty cool since I’ve been excited to replay Diablo 3 again because of the PS4 Pro patch. Love being able to hop from one console to the other and not miss out on any games.

I played it a few hours on PC a while back. Seems like it would be a good game with a ton of depth. I just wasn't feeling the genre when I played it so that is why I stopped. If you are a fan of the genre and/or Diablo it's definitely worth checking out. Plus it's free so f*** it.

Game is fun. But the UI at the top either needs to move or shrink. And I don't like the enemy health bar the top. You can add health bars to enemies above their heads but you can't remove it from the top. Literally unplayable.

But seriously, aside from that, I'm digging it.

This get is getting better. They are few things that are a bit buggy.

Sacred 2 had the auto target swing down packed and that is what this one needs.

Love my ice and fire ball!

Pretty sure it is Diablo, but better, apparantly.
Yep pretty much. If you watch the Xbox video on the first page of the thread, it shows a seriously impressive amount of character customisation. Way more than I've seen in any RPG, never mind a loot based one like this.

Devs always spout of huge combo numbers when it comes to this kind of thing. It sounds impressive but the number of worthile combos are easily counted, usually.

Yeah very possible. The reports from PC land are that it delivers on it so I guess we need to see if it all makes it over to console.
