You may have already heard a thing or two about this free-to-play online action RPG released by Grinding Gear Games last year. Sure, the game was bashed at first for being just another Diablo clone, but Path of Exile has since received critical acclaim for the new features it brings to the genre and is even considered by many to be a better game than Diablo 3. One the other hand, maybe you haven’t actually heard about Path of Exile, in which case this would be a perfect time to give it a go as the new Forsaken Masters expansion pack was just released. As suggested by the title, the Masters are the main highlight here, but this add-on also brings new items, quests, boss fights and more.
“Players will cross paths with the seven Forsaken Masters – seven skilled individuals who were exiled to the forsaken continent of Wraeclast by Dominus, a powerful entity of corruption and tyranny. Each Master offers unique quests, training, mission variations, item crafting and modification options, secret and customizable towns known as Hideouts, tiers of Hideout decorations, and more in exchange for an Exile’s help. New Challenge Leagues, revamped boss fights, new lore, new Unique items, new skill and support gems, a PvP Spectator Mode, and dozens of other additions have also been implemented as part of the Forsaken Masters expansion.”
As mentioned, Path of Exile is free-to-play and is available on Steam complete with achievements and all the other good stuff. The game does feature microtransactions and you can spend real money on things like weapon effects, armor sets and pets among other things. Most of these items merely change the appearance of your existing gear without modifying any stats so this isn’t a pay-to-win title.
