I've been fortunate enough to get accepted into beta testing for Path of Exile, and I thought I'd throw out some thoughts on my experiences with it so far. To the best of my knowledge and from what I could find through forums, PoE testers are not under any form of NDA. If I'm mistaken here though, let me know and I'll remove this right away. PoE will also switch from closed to open beta "soon"!
For anyone new to Path of Exile, short and sweet description follows. PoA is an online only action RPG, with a lot of similarities to games such as the Diablo series, Torchlight and Titan's quest. It is in closed beta testing for a full year already, with open betas right around the corner. Once released it will follow a free to play business model, sustaining itself on "ethical microtransactions", hopefully meaning there will be no way to "pay to win" as many F2P games unfortunately end up as.
