Support Path of Exile Development – Pre-purchase Credit NowPosted 6 April 2012 by Paul Younger
Following last weeken’s open beta test for Grinding Gear Games’ ARPG Path of Exile, in which 46,911 people took part, GGG has opened up their special pre-purchase microtransaction credit store which gives gamers the opportunity to directly support the game’s development prior to the full release.
The cheapest tier is $10 which includes Closed Beta access for a friend. Higher purchases come with in-game Kiwi bird Pets, t-shirts, signed posters and the option to design a Unique Item. You can also buy extra character slots and stash tabs for your compulsive item hoarding. Any purchases made now will continue into the Open Beta – although your Closed Beta characters and non-microtransaction items will be wiped.
Being a small studio and the fact that the game is going to be free to play supported by microstransactions, these offers are a great way to show your support.
