Grinding Gears Games has announced a second season of race events for Path of Exile. Races are short events which start all players off in a fresh economy, giving everyone a chance to hit the top of the leaderboard and score prizes. Season One lasted for 109 events, some as short as minutes and others as long as a week. The schedule for Season Two has now been posted, so mark your calendars. Path of Exile is an indie, free-to-play dungeon crawler.

Path of Exile will receive expansions for somewhere between five and ten years, Grinding Gears boss Chris Wilson told Joystiq at GDC. The dungeon crawler is still in open beta, but is expected to hit version 1.0 later this year, and will add an extra story act at that time; Wilson said that kind of expansion is “probably a once a year thing”. Check out the free-to-play RPG here.

During the Path of Exile closed beta, the game featured these things called “race events” where you start a new character and try to accumulate money and level up quickly and generally be awesome at the game while starting from scratch at the beginning of the event. And now Grinding Gear is bringing them back in the open beta.

Come one, come all, anticipated indie action RPG Path of Exile is now open for business. The free-to-play Diabloesque was developed in occasionally sunny Auckland and backed by over $2.6 million in crowdfunding. It boasts of a “gigantic” skill tree, 110 skill gems, randomly generated levels, a persistent online world, crafting, leaderboards in every mode and global PvP tournaments. Sounds hot, right? Grinding Gears convinced us fairly readily. Head on over to the game’s website to get on board, no key required.
