This December, Path of Exile
will be not only entering open beta but introducing its new Act 3 expansion
. What's this? An expansion before the game even launches? Yeah, games are nutty like that these days, but the folks at Grinding Gear Games
say that they've already raised over $1.2 million in crowd-funded support during closed beta.
This new expansion will add an extra 50% of content to the game world, introducing players to the ruined city of Sarn and providing some backstory on those who exiled them to Wraeclast. PvP arena combat will also debut in a patch before Act 3 launches.
You can currently pre-purchase
the game when you spend as little as $10 worth on in-game credit. This will get also get you a closed beta key while you wait for open beta in December.
