Following the successful release of their popular action RPG Path of Exile, Grinding Gear Games today announced that they have partnered with leading Southeast Asian publisher Garena Online to bring Path of Exile to gamers in Asia. Closed Beta is set to begin on November 14, 2013.
Garena Online is publishing Path of Exile in Asia, to give players a better gaming experience, beginning with a separate realm for the Malaysia and Singapore regions. This partnership is expected to expose millions of new gamers to Path of Exile while providing a version appropriate to the cultures and languages of these territories. Existing users who already play Path of Exile in areas that Garena will represent are able to continue to play the game on any desired server.
"We’re extremely excited about our partnership with Garena because they have demonstrated that they excel at bringing Western games to an international market," said Chris Wilson, Managing Director of Grinding Gear Games. "We anticipate that this new audience will benefit the global Path of Exile community, and will allow us to expand the game even faster."
