With the new update for Path of Exile you get the opportunity to hunt monsters and to sacrifice for items.
The Hack and Slay Path of Exile is and remains an absolute positive example for the free-to-play market. While the New Zealand developer Grinding Gear Games only demands money for cosmetic PoE items and pets as well as other boot chests, he releases big updates with free content every few months. After 2017, with “Fall of Oriath” a huge expansion with six new story files, this year is followed by a new league that makes you a monster hunter.
The “Bestiary” update for Path of Exile, to which the league owes its name, will be released on March 2nd. Here you are able to catch all kinds of monsters in the game world and ship them to your private Menagerie. But instead of just watching every day what magnificent or terrifying creatures you have caged in, you sacrifice them, if your hero is ready, on the Blood Altar to craft powerful items. The rarer and stronger the monsters are, the better items you can make.
Incidentally, you fill the new bestiary with each trapped creature in which you retrieve information about the individual creatures. It all reminds a bit of the principle of the “Monster Hunter” games. And given the popularity of the series, it’s pretty cool that Grinding Gear Games is incorporating such a feature into a free update.
But that’s not all that awaits you in two weeks in Path of Exile. The new update adds three new gems and fresh endgame challenges. With the fight against the Uber-elder, the most demanding role-playing content awaits you according to the developers. In addition, all 19 Ascendancy classes are revised and added to new mechanics, which in turn allows fresh builds. This big package will be rounded off with 30 more Fated Unique Items, a new quest in the tenth act and ten prophecy cards.
