This Weekend is a open beta stress test weekend for Path of Exile... So maybe you can curb your Diablo 3 anticipation...

Here's what they said:


Want some dark RPG action this weekend, with all-new features and tons of flexibility?

We're opening up the Path of Exile Beta to everyone this weekend, May 11-13, so that we can stress-test our servers in preparation for entering Open Beta.

The last public weekend in March was a huge success and attracted a total of 47,000 players. We're keen to try to push that limit! There's a list of frequently asked questions about the public weekend here:

This week, we announced the Shadow, our Dexterity/Intelligence character class, which is available from the public weekend onwards. He prefers to use fast-hitting weapons such as daggers or claws to dart in and out of battle, while laying Traps or Remote Mines and controlling the flow of combat with deadly spells. You can read more about the Shadow here:

Today we deployed the 0.9.9 Beta patch, which has been described as the most important patch that the game has ever had. In addition to adding ten new skills, four new support gems, a new quest, monster type and many bug fixes, it introduced a completely revamped monster AI and behaviour system. We're pleased to say that these changes have made Path of Exile more fun and challenging than it has ever been before.

If you enjoy the public weekend (or want to play earlier than that), we encourage you to support us by purchasing some microtransaction credit. All purchases grant Closed Beta access as our way of thanking you for your support. You're able to do this here:

I hope to see you this weekend!
