Action-RPG Path of Exile is holding another open beta this coming weekend, from September 14-16.
The Path of Exile beta servers will open for public access at 5pm on Friday September 14, and public access will end at 11:59pm on Sunday September 16.
A previous public weekend in July attracted 55,000 players.
“We find these open weekends extremely valuable, because the feedback from the general gaming public provides a different perspective than that of our closed beta testers,” said Grinding Gear Games’ producer Chris Wilson.
“We’re really pleased to see that many public weekend players choose to join the closed beta to continue playing after the weekend events.”
The open weekend will also feature special events, such as two hour ladder races and competitions to clear areas first.
Those interested may sign up at the game’s official site.
The free-to-play Path of Exile is currently in closed beta, although players who pre-purchase at least USD$10 (AU$9.67) of credit for the game’s “ethical microtransactions” receive a beta key.
Fans buying access to the closed beta, virtual pets, and pre-purchased game currency have raised over USD$1,200,000 (AU$1,160,864) that will go towards the game's development.
