Grinding Gear Games has announced the
release of its latest Path of Exile content expansion, Bestiary. The new
content is available for both PC and XBox One users and brings a host
of new activities to the game. Most notably, players will be able to
hunt and capture almost 300 creatures throughout Wraeclast and use them
sacrificially to "create and augment potent items".
Path of Exile: Bestiary Features:
The Bestiary Challenge League: With a fresh economy and brand-new
mechanics, the Bestiary Challenge League is ideal for existing,
returning, and brand new players to experience the award-winning
gameplay Path of Exile has to offer.
Capture Dangerous Beasts: Track Wraeclast's most dangerous animals,
weaken them, and capture them to make them your own. There are around
250 regular beasts and 40 legendary beasts to capture.
Complete your Bestiary: As you capture beasts from across Wraeclast,
they are marked in your Bestiary, a permanent record of your progress
through this league.
Populate your Menagerie: Visit and observe the beasts you've captured
whenever you want, then use them to fuel your Beastcrafting.
Beastcrafting: Perform the ritual of Sacrifice by Combat at the Blood
Altar to create and augment potent items. There are dozens of powerful
recipes that require the sacrifice of different combinations of beasts
that you have collected.
New End-Game Foes: Capturing and crafting with the right set of
beasts may grant you entrance to difficult spirit boss encounters with
powerful unique item rewards.
Bestiary Sets: The Bestiary League contains four new sets of items
based on the powerful spirit beasts. Mix and match them with other items
and discover potent new builds.
The Story Continues: High-level players will be able to challenge The
Elder and The Shaper simultaneously, deep in the center of the Atlas of
Worlds -- the toughest boss encounter in Path of Exile yet!
New Unique Items: Harness the power of 29 new Unique Items and
completing new Prophecies to transform your items to one of 30 new Fated
New Gems: Discover and build around three new gems including the new
skill Spectral Shield Throw and the new support gem Summon Phantasm on

many other small changes including ongoing performance improvements.
