Path of Exile, everyone’s favorite ARPG, has some new microtransactions once again this week. Grinding Gear Games has introduced a pair of unique individual cosmetic items, as well as a full armor set.
First up is the bloody and horrifying Lost Souls effect which adds a decidedly gory apparition effect to your character. This particular MTX draws a ton of inspiration from the Vaal, POE’s own human-sacrificing lost civilization of madmen, so if you’re looking to add that rather dark bit of flair to your build, a handful of points can give you that option.
The other major addition comes in the form of a new armour set and weapon, both of which add a sickly green glow to emphasize the poison-based nature of the set. There’s even a nice set of wings involved in this set, although you won’t be doing much flying with these particular feathers.
Check out all of these really cool MTX effects in their preview videos down below.
This is of course not the first time GGG has introduced new items to the shop for players to spend their money on. POE fans can deck their avatars out with everything from custom hideout decorations and wacky pets, to more weapons and armor effects than one can count. The developer also loves to run weekly sales on different effects.
In other news, the company is prepping the newest patch for their flagship game, within which they plan to significantly rebalance melee combat.
Path of Exile is currently free-to-play on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game offers a great mix of different gameplay types, with plenty of monsters to slay and loot to pick through. There’s some great reasons to play POE if you’re looking for that ARPG fix.
