Path of Exile has experienced steady growth over the years since its release in early access in 2013 on PC and later in 2017 on Xbox One. The developers of Grinding Gear Games have released several expansions that significantly increase game content by adding new dungeons to explore and monsters to fight. But in the next big update, the studio has something different in mind that will encourage players to start capturing monsters instead of killing them.
In the next update called Bestiary, players can join the Bestiary Challenge League, allowing players to capture monsters and store them in a base known as Menagerie. In this new area, you can invite friends to see the beasts you’ve captured and also interact with new NPC characters to get more information about the league. The monsters you find are not just to show them, because by capturing rare beasts you can get weapons and armor of great level. In this sense, to achieve these items you will have to “Beastcrafting” which consists in sacrificing the beasts in the Blood Altar of the Menagerie. By doing so you will invoke powerful bosses that you will have to defeat to activate the valuable weapons.
Along with new areas and monsters for battle, the Bestiary update will also feature a series of updates and adjustments that include new gems, skills and improvements to Ascendancy classes.
