Path of Exile launches on PlayStation 4 in December

Path of Exile is a free-to-play action game which draws inspiration from classics like Diablo. Set in the gothic world of "Wraeclast," players have access to hundreds of combinations of spells and abilities, granting unprecedented gameplay styles. It has gained tremendous popularity over the years on Xbox One and PC.

The title is free-to-play in the truest sense. Expansions aren't locked behind paywalls, and you can only spend actual currency on cosmetic items. The cosmetic items don't provide any boosts or unfair advantages whatsoever. This excellent approach to tackling the free-to-play business model is another reason why gamers can't get enough.

If you're a PlayStation 4 owner hoping that it would jump to the system of your choice, then you're in luck! According to developer Grinding Gear Games, Path of Exile will launch on PlayStation 4 really soon. The latest expansion, "Betrayal," should release on December 7, 2018 on PC, and roughly a week or two later on consoles. That's probably when the PlayStation 4 version will go live too. Unfortunately, we don't have a concrete release date yet.

Betrayal deals with the old "Masters" vanishing and being replaced by new ones, alongside a challenge league that deals with the rise of a group known as the "Immortal Syndicate." These two elements are no doubt related. The expansion also introduces a new character called Jun Ortoi, of the "Order of the Djinn." She is the main character that you interact with, as you help her with her investigation. The new content evokes themes of investigating a criminal cartel. Not only that, Betrayal also brings with it a lot of end-game maps, missions, unique items, and powerful skills.
