Grinding Gear Games’ isometric action RPG Path of Exile continues running strong with the developer having announced that the game’s second major expansion, Forsaken Masters, has resulted in a significant uptake in registrations, specifically thanks to its official release in Taiwan. Not only have there been 1 million account registrations from Taiwan within a month of Path of Exile’s release but the game is now celebrating 7 million account registrations worldwide.

On the one hand, it doesn’t feel as significant as Diablo 3 – Path of Exile’s key competition – which has shipped 20 million units across all consoles since its release. However, when you consider that Path of Exile is free to play and periodically updated with new content, 7 million registered users is no small number. The game also had a record-breaking 154,000 simultaneous online players in the past month, providing that there’s plenty of life in the community one year down the line.
