Grinding Gear Games has really been churning out microtransactions these last few months. And since it’s their primary means of making money, I can see why. Path of Exile fans seem to really love
If you don’t know that Twitch Prime is, you’re in for a treat, and so are some of your favorite streamers. Prime is a new tie-in service with Amazon Prime that offers a boatload of free goodies for paid members, while also offering special bonuses, like on free Twitch subscription a channel of your choice each month. Titles across multiple genres offer plenty of bonuses to enjoy for those that pay into the service. Overwatch, Warframe and now Path of Exile have all offered cool skins and other purpley bonuses to entice gamers into the subscription.
For this month though, GGG is offering a set of new purple item and effect skins, totaling three free microtransactions, each with their own unique look calling back to Twitch Prime. Take a look at these new effects in the trailer down below.
If you want to claim these new goodies, here’s how to do it:
- Log in to your Path of Exile account, or create a new one.
- Link your Path of Exile account to Twitch.tv.
- Sign up for a free trial of Twitch Prime (if you don’t have it active already).
- Log into your Twitch.tv account.
- Visit the Path of Exile Loot page in Twitch Prime and click the “Claim” button.
In terms of new paid items. Grinding Gear Games has at least a couple new items for POE players to snatch up. These two new items offer very different styles for very different players, so why not give both of them a gander in the preview trailers down below.
First, there’s a new hideout effect which offers a rather sickening decoration for those POE players looking for a much more grim and bloody theme to their reclusive hideaways in Wraeclast. This new Doomcrow hideout decoration can be altered to offer either a more subtle aerial effect or more pronounced lighting effects for the player that wants this kind of style.
Then there’s a somehow even more sinister skill effect on offer, one styled after the dangerous and mysterious Elder. This new sill effect for the Ancestral Warchief offers a much more tentacle-filled bit of pain than the standard shadowy effect of the totem skill.
