Made By Hardcore Gamers, For Hardcore Gamers

Since the initial founding of Grinding Gear Games in 2006, this New Zealand gaming developer studio has released just one game - Path Of Exile. It started as a minor indie studio until the Chinese giant Tencent recognized its qualities and acquired the company in 2018. Path Of Exile is like a child with no siblings who got all the attention and love from its parents. Was this the reason for its immense success?


Quite possibly, that might be one of the reasons why Path Of Exile is so phenomenal. From its launch date until now, Grinding Gear Games have constantly been pandering to players, with just one goal on their mind - making an ultimate dark fantasy ARPG gameplay experience. Because of that, profit came organically, without forcing the company to implement pay-to-win monetization of any kind. The entire team of Grinding Gear Games consists of veteran gamers who wanted to develop a game that could compete with Diablo III (speaking of which, check out the download size of Diablo III and the download size of New World, as a bonus) rather than emulating it as many other studios did.


Over the years, Path Of Exile has evolved into the game we know today — from a game with only three acts and around 30 hours of gameplay to an immense game with ten acts and infinite possibilities, even the end-game ones. So if you're a fan of dark fantasy ARPG games such as the Diablo series, you can't go wrong with Path Of Exile. Whether you're going solo or you want to play it with up to four friends, you can count on neverending entertainment and lots of hours of gameplay. On the other hand, you can be patient and wait for the Path Of Exile 2 release (which is more of a Path Of Exile update rather than a sequel) if 2024 doesn't seem too distant.
