With this partnership, UOL BoaCompra's payment methods will allow Path of Exile players in Brazil the ability make purchases in-game using their preferred payment methods. To provide even further coverage for the dark and gritty action RPG, the payments giant will also monetize the game throughout Latin America, Portugal, Spain and Turkey. The partnership grants UOL BoaCompra exclusive monetization rights for Path of Exile in Brazil and will ensure that local customer support, payment gateways, and marketing through Brazil's largest content portal, UOL, will be provided.

"We have an avid player base in Brazil, so we're excited to finally be able to deliver the full Path of Exile experience and introduce the game to a whole new audience," said Chris Wilson, Managing Director for Grinding Gear Games. "UOL BoaCompra understands the Brazilian market very well and takes an innovative approach to deliver a high quality service to the Latin American community."

"Path of Exile is one of the most exciting RPG's we've seen in a while, and their community is growing rapidly in Brazil," said Christian Borneman, Head of Global Business Development for UOL BoaCompra. "The game's features - the ability to trade, modify, build characters, and challenge one another - is a perfect fit for Brazilian gamers who strongly prefer games with unique and social strategies; we're excited to bring such an acclaimed title to our gaming community."

The popular online PC action role-playing game features ethical microtransactions; the game is free-to-play, but never pay-to-win. Playing as one of seven character classes, players find themselves banished for their past misdeeds to the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast. There, they encounter hundreds of species of opponents laden with loot and mysterious artifacts as they explore the abandoned continent.

Key features include:

  • A dark and deep action RPG
  • Unlimited character combinations with the game's gigantic skill tree
  • Combine skill gems to create unique combat strategies
  • Explore a dark and gritty world rendered from a fixed 3D perspective
  • Download and play for free, but never pay-to-win
  • Explore randomly generated levels for nearly infinite replayability
  • Craft weapons, magic items and even end-game maps to become more powerful
  • Cooperate or compete with thousands of other Exiles in a persistent online world
  • Ascend online ladders in every game mode
  • Battle in PvP tournaments for worldwide recognition
  • Steam and Twitch integration
