Path Of Exile 2 Shows Off "Next-Generation Action Combat" In New Gameplay Trailer

Path of Exile 2 gameplay footage was first displayed during last year’s ExileCon. Fast-forward to today, and Gearing Gear Games has released another massive gameplay trailer – showing off nearly 20 minutes of in-game footage, featuring new weapon types and a firsthand look at so-called “next-generation action combat.”

The trailer takes place during the second of seven acts, highlighting different enemies, biomes, and gear you’ll come across during your time with the game. Specifically, the developer points out two new weapon types – spears and crossbows. You can see the gory action in the trailer below:

Path of Exile was a good-looking game when it launched in 2013, although it’s starting to show its age in 2021. However, based on this new gameplay footage, Path of Exile 2 is going to be one of the best-looking ARPGs on the market. The action is still as fast-paced and bloody as you’ve come to expect, but everything is a touch more vivid – with special particle effects lighting up the screen with every ability cast.

Path of Exile 2 does not yet have a release date, although it’s not expected to arrive until 2022. The pandemic has considerably slowed down its development, and the team doesn’t want to rush the game to market.

For now, you can enjoy the upcoming Ultimatum expansion, which is scheduled to arrive next week.
