path of exile steam

Running around Wraeclast can be fun but you always need something to strive for in Path of Exile.

When Grinding Gear Games announced the game would be released on Steam that left us wondering if there would be Path of Exile Steam Achievements. The answer was of course “yes”.

As part of Path of Exile week on IncGamers we can exclusively reveal the Path of Exile Steam Achievements list which we have gathered from the development team.

Chris Wilson also informed us that they plan on adding at least one new achievement with  each of the two-weekly content updates and these will be on-going which is pretty cool. He also mentions that Challenges and Guild Challenges are separate systems.

    Eternal, Left to Chance, Elemental Trinity and Well-Connected are the difficult ones, the rest is easily obtainable with normal gameplay

    • BisnessPirate

      Well Elemental Trinity will probably come with regular play in a party at map level.

      • geradon

        i don’t think that effects from several people count as this is a personal achievement. can be wrong though.

    • rabidwolf

      Yeah, not really fond of the achievements for just completing quests or having good equipment.

      It is interesting how there are a few that act as currency sinks or encourage players to try out certain builds though.

  • sorudo

    they should make pre-load available, makes it easier to play the game when it’s actually released.

    • geradon

      you will be able to download the resource file over a torrent. at least it was announced. and they fixed previous problem with write protected resourcefiles coming from a torrent.

  • AndreasdONEr

    Can’t wait to see how the Steam Profile background will look like.


  • geradon

    one cool achievement would be:

    meet brutus with a new char without killing a monster.


    kill 1000 monsters in mercyless difficulty without any weapon (facebreaker counts as weapon).


    cheat kraytin into proposing alira and arrange that in the night of the marriage she leaves for oak, kill kraytin bare handed, then oak and flee with alira.

  • geradon

    hey incgamers, you really should have made the lottery for all poe threads.

    • Elly


      • Spud of Doom

        I assume they mean the supporter pack giveaway

  • DL

    I wonder if I will be able to play with my nickname from Steam? When I tried to register on the PoE website, I was told the nickname was already in use so I went away. If by using Steam the nickname thing is linked then I’ll be good to give it a go, otherwise I’ll pass.
