A new, long gameplay trailer has been released for Path of Exile 2. Diablo 4 looks like he’s going to have a serious rival.
Next year will be a great year for action RPGs. Because Diablo 4 and Path of Exile 2 will be released in 2022, and this time Diablo has a very strong competitor. Grinding Gear has released two new trailers for PoE 2, introducing both act 2 and its 20-minute gameplay. The long gameplay trailer looks really impressive, and we can safely say that Diablo 4 has a seriously strong opponent.
Focusing on the second of the seven episodes planned for the game, the new trailer briefly hints at the story. With the help of the huge caravan of a nomadic tribe, we follow enemies through the desert and also make a journey to the main center of the game. In a closed mountain temporary, the player will have to go through a network of tunnels to open the door and proceed to the gate. The new video also reveals some new types of weapons. We also note that the game’s movement set is quite well designed. With fast battles, we’ll have to use skill in a hurry to kill enemies and avoid damage.
Judging by the video, it’s clear that these mechanics will be more crucial, especially in boss battles. You can also find some new types of enemies for the first time in the video. In the sequel to the series, the story is also shown to the players that it is not linear.
Path of Exile 2 doesn’t have a specific release date yet, but the game is expected to be released next year. It will be free to play and will be offered as a free update for Path of Exile. Each expedition will have its own spoils, locations, enemies and story. Obviously it’s a very brave decision not to release it as a separate game, and we’ll all know the consequences in 2022. Nevertheless, given the mechanics developed and the structure of the game, Path of Exile 2 seems to be a very strong competitor for Diablo 4.
