It’s Path of Exile’s fifth birthday (since the game went into open beta, that is), and the team taking a moment or two to look back at the progress it’s made since the game was initially conceived.

The original vision for the game was laid out back in 2008, and Grinding Gears was pleasantly surprised to see how much of this design document was realized in Path of Exile. It makes for a pretty interesting read!

“Many of the elements described in this document made it into the full game,” the studio said, “including ones that were implemented many years after Path of Exile’s release. Today’s news post outlines the parts of Path of Exile that came from the original design, and draws attention to a few that we just didn’t think of until later.”

Looking forward, not back, Grinding Gears shared a look at the trade filtering function that’s coming to Xbox One soon. Check it out below!

I’ve been playing, and I am impressed. I never play 2 leagues in a row, and this time it was almost a year ago that I last played, and I am once again in awe at the progress they made. This is one of those rare games that gets better and better over time.

I am a bit jealous of the trade system that the xbox (and appearently also the Chinese) version of the game has though. I would personally prefer that they removed the ability to export item data from the game entirely, and implemented this trade system in the global PC version too.

There’s a portion of the playerbase that, for reasons beyond me, think that any kind of integrated trade system would completely ruin the game. I stick to SSF just so I can spend my play time actually playing instead of wading through the mire that is POE trading.

I find that trading actually takes a lot less time than doing all the extra loot identifying/sorting/portalling that is needed to find all your items yourself…
