Path of Exile is Coming to Xbox One!
Written By: Kenneth Seward Jr.
Grinding Gear Games recently announced that their hit online ARPG, Path of Exile, is coming to the Xbox One later this year. Finally, console gamers can take a crack at the award-winning Free-to-play title!
Like most good ports, this version will include all five of the previous expansions. It’s also include the new content coming to the PC (via the 3.0.0 expansion) as well as the long-awaited Act V. Basically, what this means is a whole lot of content for gamers to playthrough.
"For three years, PC players have enjoyed Path of Exile's visceral combat, deep character customization and addictive item hunt," said Chris Wilson,
co-founder of Grinding Gear Games. "We have spent over a year adapting Path of Exile specifically to the Xbox One, creating an experience equivalent to playing with mouse and keyboard on PC."
While it’s great that PoE is making it’s console debut, I’m a little concerned by the exclusion of local cooperative options. At least, that’s the vibe I get from the trailer. With Diablo 3 being such a hit on consoles, which offers couch co-op, it seems like a misstep not to include it here. That said, being a f2p title, updates are always on the way.
Path of Exile is coming exclusively to the Xbox One later this year. Feel free to check back here as we continue to cover all things gaming!
