Grinding Gear Games' action role-playing game Path of Exile makes its console debut on Xbox One later this year.

Path of Exile is free to download on Xbox One, as it is on PC. It includes all the content from the PC version, as well as the upcoming 3.0.0 expansion that includes Act Five.

Xbox One players play on their own realm, separate to the PC realm. Grinding Gear Games said this is due to small gameplay differences between the two versions, such as the number of Flask slots and how some skills are targeted. But, the developers intend to follow the same content and league release schedule on both the Xbox One and PC versions of Path of Exile.

"For three years, PC players have enjoyed Path of Exile's visceral combat, deep character customization and addictive item hunt," said Chris Wilson, co-founder of Grinding Gear Games.

"We have spent over a year adapting Path of Exile specifically to the Xbox One, creating an experience equivalent to playing with mouse and keyboard on PC."

The video, below, has a couple of minutes of gameplay of the Xbox One version.

Path of Exile came out on PC in October 2013 and quickly won over fans of the ARPG genre. It proved a viable alternative to the Diablo series. Some reckon it's even better.
