A new Path of Exile II gameplay trailer was shown during the Summer Game Fest event today. This is the first new footage shared of the game in over two years.
The trailer showed a sorceress-type character electrifying and blasting hordes of enemies, and was a rather short teaser. Path of Exile 2 was originally announced in 2019, when gameplay was seen for the first time.
Path of Exile II is introducing a new story campaign, along with an overhaul of the original engine and gameplay. However, the sequel will not replace the original game, instead sharing endgame systems and operating on the same client. Players will have the choice of going through the game’s original campaign or the campaign of Path of Exile II upon creating a new character.
More information about Path of Exile II, including the release date for its beta, will be coming July 28th as part of developer Grinding Gear Games’ ExileCon fan convention.
