Path of Exile 2 is a vast standalone expansion for Path of Exile, the 2013 online action RPG inspired by the Diablo series. The title's developer is the New Zealand-based Grinding Gear Games, which has been developing PoE since its inception. Path of Exile 2 was announced in November 2019 at the ExileCon 2019 Convention.

Mechanics

Path of Exile 2 is a completely new chapter of Path of Exile. The add-on offers a new story campaign, consisting of seven acts set twenty years after the events of the main game. Starting the adventure, we are asjed to create a completely new hero. We choose from class archetypes known to the fans of the first part. By gaining experience and completing appropriate tasks, we can later decide to choose nineteen completely new specialties (Ascendancy Classes), unavailable in the original campaign. During the game, we can use a completely rebuilt system of equipment, jewels and skills, which were created based on suggestions from fans.

Technical aspects

Also the visuals of Path of Exile 2 have undergone a visible overhaul. The creators have implemented a new lighting system and object physics, as well as much better animations and 3D models. It is worth noting that Path of Exile and Path of Exile 2 are available through the same game client. Both titles are also differentiated by the endgame, which was rebuilt in the Conquerors of the Atlas add-on, released in December 2019. It also means that all cosmetic items and materials purchased through microtransactions will be usable in both titles. The business model (free-to-play) also remains unchanged. The game is available to all fans in the form of a free update for the main game, marked with the number 4.0.
