As Grinding Gear Games continue with their beta test of the ARPG Path of Exile, today they have announced that all the Path of Exile closed Beta characters are being moved to Legacy leagues and they have created new Default and Hardcore leagues, which are now open. GGG are encouraging players to plat new characters on the new Default and Hardcore leagues so they can make balance changes and fix up any issues.
The game has also recently received some improvements such as full voice acting for NPCs and characters and more Act Two quest progression and they are looking to get arena PvP combat added in a few weeks time.
They also want everyone who has purchased a Path of Exile supporter pack to know that the goodies will be shipped out soon as the stock is finally arriving t their offices. These should ship out in a few weeks according to GGG.
Finally, the development team are still expecting to push the game into an open beta later this year which will be the last time characters are wiped. More beta content will also be added including Act III
