Path of Exile Devs Take You On a Walk Down Memory Lane

Path of Exile Devs Take You On a Walk Down Memory Lane -

It's been nearly eight years since Path of Exile went into closed beta testing. Since the week is slow due to the holidays, Grinding Gear devs have put up a cool article that is very much a walk down Memory Lane. In a series of videos with developer commentary, viewers can get a look at the game along various points in its development starting with a gameplay clip that shows combat during 2011's closed beta test.

We entered Closed Beta in August of 2011, with the first two Acts of Path of Exile available. This early version didn't have any form of microtransactions or even a trade screen. Players gained access through the popular "Beta Key Timer" on the website, which picked a random player to award Beta access to periodically, and showed everyone who it picked. 

Check out other points in history including:

  • the open beta trailer
  • the PoE cinematic release trailer
  • the Sacrifice of the Vaal (v1.1.0) trailer
  • Forsaken Masters trailer (v1.2.0)
  • Torment & Bloodlines gameplay (v1.3.0)
  • Bloodlines Hardcore Challenge League gameplay 

Head to the Path of Exile site to see them all.

What's your favorite moment from PoE's past?
