Since Path of Exile’s next major update is really heavy on story, it’s the perfect time for the team behind the game to work on updating old NPC models around the game. The updated NPC models add a nice layer of polish to go along with the new weapon and skill effects being added. Nessa and Tarkleigh’s models are both available for preview, with a quick glance making it rather clear which model is the new and improved version. POE is coming along nicely in terms of appearance.
Of course, with all of the good work being done on The Fall of Oriath, perhaps you’re inclined to drop a little money on the game to support these kinds of huge updates. So it’s a good thing there’s new stuff to spend money on, including a wallaby pet, a swarm of bats, and a glowing red portal effect. You can check out some of the video previews for these new items in the store, there are some great new effects on sale that you should check out.
