Never let it said that violence can't be for a good cause. Starting this Saturday, Path of Exile will offer its players the chance to participate in a new Ambush/Invasion race event. So far, so biffy-'n-bashy. The difference is that this particular slaughterfest is all in the name of charity. Throughout the event, an exclusive new helmet skin will be made available for purchase, and 100% of its proceeds will be donated to Child's Play.


As an incentive to take part, a random draw will award prizes from the pool of players who reach the following ranks:



Level 15: 100x Stash Tab Bundles 


Level 20: 100x Premium Stash Tab Bundles 


Level 25: 10x Razer Mice 


Level 30: 5x Razer Keyboards 


Level 35: 5x NVIDIA High-performance Graphics Cards 


Level 50: 10x Sets of all Seraph Microtransactions (Armour pieces, Wings, Weapon Effect and Footprint Effect) 


Level 65: 5x Sets of Signed Prints of Original Early Concept Art 


Level 85: 1x One hour private Q&A on Skype with Chris, Jonathan and Erik 


Players can participate in multiple tiers, so you won't have to deliberately stop at level 35 just to be in with a chance of the graphic's card.


According to the announcement post , "this event has the properties of both the Ambush and (recently rebalanced) Invasion challenge leagues. That means that you'll encounter enchantable Strongboxes, guest monsters and Invasion bosses as you compete. It's parented to the Invasion league, so you'll be able to continue your character in that league once the race ends." It's also a hardcore event, meaning dead characters will be eliminated.


The Child's Play charity event begins May 10, and will run until May 24th.


Not tried Path of Exile? You should. It's free, and ARPG fan Tom Senior was enchanted by its giant board of levelling options.

It's a harsh world out there in Conan Exiles, so it helps to have some faithful friends at your side. A free update this week, the 34th for Funcom's multiplayer survival game, means you'll never have to solo again. The update adds pets, which can be raised from cubs or eggs you find in the wild. Build a pen and remember to feed them, and they'll grow into a faithful companion who will fight by your side.


"The new pet system will also introduce the mechanic of thrall feeding," reads the news post on the Conan site. "Special Feed boxes and Thrall Pots are available for easier, automatic food distribution to several pets or thralls for those of you who are planning for bigger armies of two and four legged friends."


Your pets will also produce dung you can use for gardening, and if your pet dies that doesn't mean they can't still help you: "Placing dead pets inside a Liquid Separator will grind them down into blood, bone and hide resources." Rest in pieces, Mr. Fluffington.


Less cool than the addition of pets, but still cool overall, is everything else contained in the free update, like a new dungeon called Midnight Grove, an imposing new religious avatar called Jhebbal Sag, and new dual-wielding chain combos and arrow types buy POE currency . You can see all of this in the video above.
