Path of Exile 2 is quietly one of the most anticipated action RPGs around. Grinding Gear Games recently took the wraps off its big sequel, in the process confirming that it will be a standalone release. With gamescom 2023 in full swing, we were able to get a much closer at the hotly-anticipated Diablo IV competitor, including a ton of new gameplay.
First up, we have gameplay featuring Path of Exile 2’s Druid narrated by co-creator Jonathan Rogers. The footage features a demonstration of the Druid’s powerful bear form and its various abilities. Check it out!
In addition we got to see two other major classes in Path of Exile 2: the Warrior and the Huntress. Rogers is once again on hands to talk through the two Path of Exile 2 classes and what they have to offer.
Finally, we have lots more screenshots from Path of Exile 2 featuring environments, bosses, and spell effects. Based on the videos above and these new images, it’s clear that Path of Exile 2 has come quite a long way and is more than capable of standing up to its comeptition in the visuals department.
Path of Exile 2 is the sequel to the popular Diablo-style action RPG first released in 2013. It’s known for its huge skill trees, massive amount of content, and its unique economy. Path of Exile 2 was initially an update, but it eventually picked up a number, then a full standalone release. It’s currently slated to release into early access in 2024, where players will be able to play through the entire game.
For more, check out our hands-on preview, where we called it a “gorgeous overhaul of the classic action RPG,” as well as all the rest of our coverage as gamescom 2023 continues.
