2022 will be an epic year for action RPG, as the duel between Diablo 4 and Path of Exile 2 is coming. At present, GGG has launched a new trailer for Path of Exile 2 and a 20-minute commentary walkthrough. Now we can learn about it.
The new trailer and walkthrough are focused on the second of the seven planned behaviors, where players cross the desert to hunt down their enemies with the help of a huge caravan of nomadic tribes, which is also the main center of the behavior. This is an exciting shot showing some new POE Currency. The spear has a built-in movement skill, and the displayed skill allows the player to charge to increase damage or sprint to avoid damage.
The video also shows that Act 2 will be very non-linear. After reopening the mountain pass and arguing with The Perennial King, the villain who seems to be the recurring behavior, the player will get another four missions in different locations, which can be performed in any order. Players first go to the Mastodon Cemetery, where they must fight a group of necromancers who are summoning undead servants throughout the stage. The climax of the mission is to fight the extremely metallic-sounding black ribbed death lord and the boss of his Exalted Orb.
As a regular player of Path of Exile, the most prominent thing in this demo is how good the game looks. Although there is no visual slack, the original era of Path of Exile has begun to appear. PoE2's lights, enemy animations, particle effects, and environmental backgrounds all feel significant improvements.
