New Trailer Announces Path of Exile 2

  • Developer Grinding Gear Games confirmed on ExileCon that they are developing Path of Exile 2. Although as the name suggests, Path of Exile 2 is not a traditional sequel. It can even give you the option to play the battle of the base game. In this regard, the title is closer to a larger extension.

    However, there is still a lot of new content to look forward to in this pseudo-continuation. Path of Exile 2 will even launch a new seven-screen battle that can be done with your old character or new creation. If you do choose to create a new role for this sequel, you can choose from 19 new advantage classes. The basic design of these classes is similar to the classes in the original Path of Exile, but they have all been tweaked and have new features. Of course, all characters can use the new equipment, POE Currency, cosmetics, features and all the other new content you would like to receive through this sequel/expansion.

    However, Path of Exile 2 will change the way the core game works by making some major changes to the underlying experience, thus running counter to the expected...wrong...road. These changes include new skill systems based on POE Orbs,  changes in the way the projectiles and other physics-based items react to the world, and even the implementation of the new visual engine seems to have largely changed the visual and performance of the original game.

    Considering the imminent launch of Diablo 4 and threatening the ultimate challenge to Path of Exile's convincing style, this “Path of Exile” “2.0 version” approach seems to be a very sensible move. Yes, Diablo 4 has the name of Diablo, but many believe that Path of Exile is the “real” successor to Diablo II and its heritage.

    We will look at whether the reputation of the game is maintained when Path of Exile is released sometime in the distant future (beta testing may not begin until the end of 2020). Until then, you can expect to see more extensions to the original Path of Exile. You can also purchase POE Trade Currency, which is cheap and easy to use in MMOAH. Recently, their website offers a 5% discount on POE Exalted Orb related products.
