Path of Exile Harvest Sprouts

The new Harvest expansion is now available for the Windows edition of Path of Exile, allowing you to reap what you sow in Grinding Gear's free-to-play action/RPG. This is also coming to consoles, as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are expected next week. The details on the new content are available on the Path of Exile Website where you can find this trailer that shows off gameplay and offers developer commentary. Here's what this adds to the game:
Path of Exile: Harvest introduces a Oshabi who has enlisted your help in cultivating the Sacred Grove, an ancient garden of mysterious powers. Seeds can be planted within the grove and when ready to harvest, will produce dangerous monsters. Players will slay these monsters in order to wield their Lifeforce as a powerful crafting resource and to help other exotic crops in their growth. A bountiful harvest can unlock powerful crafting options that are unmatched by any past expansion.

"One of our favorite aspects of the Harvest League is its crafting system," said Chris Wilson, Co-founder and Managing Director of Grinding Gear Games. "We have really leaned into designing a crafting system which is much more powerful, accessible and unique than any we have made before. We can't wait to see how Path of Exile players push the potential of Harvest's powerful crafting to its limits."

Path of Exile: Harvest Key Features Include:

  • Download and play all content for free, but never pay-to-win.
  • The Harvest Challenge League and its powerful crafting system.
  • Four new Warcry skills, and a rework of three existing ones.
  • Three new Brands, one Brand support gem and revamped existing brands.

This game has a harmful micro-transaction system. Cosmetics that should cost a few bucks end up costing $180. The stash tabs are $5-15 bucks apiece. Their announcements typically announce a new micro-transaction item. For example, this one on 6/18 includes this snippet:

"If you're looking for some extra character slots for your account for launch weekend, we're running a sale on these right now! Additionally, this is your last chance to get Thaumaturgy Mystery Boxes! It will leave the store when our next mystery box enters the store! Keep in mind that if you haven't taken advantage of it yet, it's still possible to get a free Thaumaturgy Mystery Box when you spend any amount of points in the store. NOTE: this is only possible once per account. Additional purchases do not grant additional mystery boxes. If you need some extra points, we recommend checking out the Harvest supporter packs."

I don't mind when a free game has a micro-transaction component. But I do mind when the publisher employs psychologically manipulative tactics to get people to keep buying stuff.
