Grinding Gear Games fund the Path of Exile development through supporter packs and the new Ascendancy packs are available for purchase now.
There’s a variety of packs available ranging from $50 right up to $440 and they all come with a variety of bonus extras for the truly dedicated POE player. Packs include new Gargoyle pets, forum titles, portrait frames, points and the Awakening extended soundtrack. Ascendancy T-shirts, art packs and new portal effects are also available as part of the higher tiered packs.
GGG’s Chris Wilson also posted an note this evening announcing changes to the original plans for the pack contents.
Hello from Brazil! Many people are disappointed with the value proposition of these new supporter packs. While I am personally very pleased with the new effects, and handled the pricing myself, I am very ready to admit I was wrong.
We will be adding portal effects to the two lowest packs and will be creating new weapon effects to go in all packs (four tiers total). Like with other recent packs, higher packs include all lower effects.
The team are hard at work on these new effects and we’ll unveil them as soon as we can (next week?). All packs purchased now will of course retroactively have the new effects added to them once they are ready. Thanks again for your great support and the positive comments about the new packs. They just got a lot more tempting, I hope!
If you’re a Path of Exile player then you can show your support by grabbing a pack now.
