Path of Exile 2 Exciting Details: Running in Parallel with Path of Exile 1
Grinding Gear Games (GGG) has thrilled Path of Exile players with a groundbreaking announcement – the development of Path of Exile 2, a completely new game running in parallel with Path of Exile 1. This guide will cover all the exciting details revealed during the Path of Exile 2 announcement at ExileCon.
- Path of Exile 2: A Standalone Game
- A Fresh Campaign with Familiar Faces
- Twelve Classes and Thirty-Six Ascendancies
- Enhanced Skill System
- Revolutionary Itemization
- Dynamic Boss Fights and Engaging Combat
↖ Path of Exile 2: A Standalone Game
Initially planned as an expansion for Path of Exile, GGG decided to transform Path of Exile 2 into a standalone game due to its vast content and unique gameplay. Both games will coexist independently, and players can enjoy them separately. Imagine it as the relationship between RuneScape and Old School RuneScape, where both thrive side by side with their dedicated communities.
↖ A Fresh Campaign with Familiar Faces
Path of Exile 2's campaign will feature six acts, set 20 years after the events of Path of Exile. The game introduces new areas, such as a desert resembling America and a jungle containing remnants of a fallen Vol Empire. Notably, the game feels more interactive, with characters like Alva actively assisting players through various challenges.
↖ Twelve Classes and Thirty-Six Ascendancies
Path of Exile 2 introduces twelve classes, including six familiar ones (Ranger, Shadow, Witch, Templar, Marauder, and Duelist) and six new ones. These new classes, like the Druid and Monk, bring fresh gameplay mechanics and unique playstyles to the table. Additionally, the game boasts a total of thirty-six ascendancies, offering an array of character archetypes to explore.
↖ Enhanced Skill System
Unlike in Path of Exile 1, where you specialize in one specific skill, Path of Exile 2 encourages players to diversify their builds. Each skill can now have five support gems, and a new resource called "spirit" handles aura and minion reservations. This opens up more build possibilities, allowing players to mix and match skills to suit their preferences.
↖ Revolutionary Itemization
Itemization in Path of Exile 2 has seen significant changes, with new items offering exciting options. Notable items include the Long Belt (increased flask charges), Solar Amulet (grants spirit), and Icicle Flail (high crit chance and base cold damage). These new items, along with the redesigned skill system, add depth and variety to character builds.
↖ Dynamic Boss Fights and Engaging Combat
Path of Exile 2 promises epic boss fights with a heavy inspiration from Dark Souls. The bosses are more challenging and offer complex mechanics, encouraging players to engage actively with the fights rather than relying on one-shot strategies. Additionally, the Dodge Roll system adds a fresh layer of defense and maneuverability to combat.
Path of Exile 2 is an ambitious venture by Grinding Gear Games, promising an exciting new chapter in the ARPG genre. The game offers improved graphics, immersive sound design, and revolutionary gameplay mechanics, breathing new life into the beloved Path of Exile universe. Whether you're a seasoned Path of Exile player or a newcomer to the genre, Path of Exile 2 is definitely one to watch out for!
