Path of Exile 2

Grinding Gear Games’ Path of Exile 2 received a new trailer and details at ExileCon, along with the announcement that it will be a standalone game instead of an update. Some extensive new gameplay is also available, showcasing the new Monk and Sorceress classes and Act 3, which takes place in the ruins of Vaal civilization.

The developer also discusses several new mechanics, like how each of the core stats – Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence – has two Classes associated with it instead of one. For the Sorceress, the team wanted to focus on “pure elemental destruction” compared to the Witch’s occult magic. She can switch weapons on the fly, and you can set two sets of Passives for each, going from Lightning to Ice damage on the fly.

Other notables include consumables from optional bosses that gave permanent boosts to some stats, the new Comet skill, which deals massive damage, and the return of Alva. Path of Exile 2 will enter closed beta on June 7th 2024 for PC. Stay tuned for more details on it in the coming year.
