Path of Exile, another entry into the action RPG / hack & slash with loot, you know like Diablo or Torchlight, is having an street test for the upcoming open beta this weekend. Originally the only way you could play Path of Exile was to purchase for early access with came with a beta key. Now for those who either didn’t want to buy up early or refused to pay for a beta key, you’re in luck!

A few minutes ago I got the following in an email;
Action RPG Path of Exile will be open to everyone this weekend, July 27-29, so that we can stress-test our servers in preparation for entering Open Beta in a few months.
If you’ve been patiently waiting to try Path of Exile’s dark and customizable gameplay, now is your chance to check out the game – for one weekend only.
The game has been in Closed Beta since last August and we have been regularly adding new content, classes and skills. The latest version adds a huge Act Two boss fight, the end-game Maps system and a new passive skill tree with over 1300 skills to customize your character with. The open weekend will include the first two acts of the game, Default and Hardcore leagues, six character classes, approximately 70 active skills, 40 support gems and hundreds of item types.
We will make the game servers public from 5pm on Friday 27 July Pacific Daylight Time until 11:59pm on Sunday. Over 48,000 people played during our last Open Weekend in May. Any feedback you provide this weekend will help us get ready for our permanent Open Beta.

There you go! This weekend only, get some Path of Exile action and make your decison on if this game is worth it or not.
