Here is an overview of Path of Exile 2, via its official website:
One game, two campaigns
Path of Exile 2 is a new seven-act scenario that adds to the original Path of Exile 1 campaign. The old and the new scenario lead to the same end of Shared Atlas. Path of Exile 2 retains all of the expansion content created in the last six years and introduces a new skill system, ancestry classes, engine enhancements, and more.
20 years have passed
Since the death of Kitava, society has slowly rebuilt itself. Ambitious men get up to fill the void and their thirst for power corrupts Wraeclast again.
19 new classes of ancestry
The characters in Path of Exile 2 are a new set of Exiles belonging to the same class archetypes as those in the original game. As such, they can choose from 19 different classes of ancestry different from old ones still available in the Path of Exile 1 campaign.
New skills system
Path of Exile 2 presents the next generation of Path of Exile's iconic skill system. Support gems are now inserted directly into Skill Gems, eliminating many of the frustrations in the old system while retaining all the previous depth. It is now possible to link all the skills of your character to six.
All new equipment
All the progress of armor and weapons has been redone from start to finish, alongside all new models and character animations. All your old microtransactions are still compatible.
And much more
In the coming year, we will be announcing much more information on improvements to Path of Exile 2, such as changes to the Passive Skill Tree and other basic gaming systems.
Over the years, we would have liked to make many changes to Path of Exile, but we could not have done it because they would break the existing characters. Path of Exile 2 is an opportunity to make all these changes in one update.
We do not yet have a release date for Path of Exile 2, but it is unlikely that we will start a beta before at least very late in 2020. In the meantime, we continue to release Path of Exile extensions on our regular database of three months. cycle. This content will be available in the Path of Exile 1 and Path of Exile 2 campaigns.
