Free-to-play action RPG game Path of Exile, a game that shows Diablo III how it’s done, is getting a sequel.

However, it’s not a separate new game. Rather, it’s an expansion that overhauls the base game in the process. So what’s new in this version of the game? Let’s break it down:

  • A brand-new seven-act story that takes place 20 years after the end of the first Path of Exile.
  • An overhaul of the game’s core systems and reworking of the combat and class mechanics. There are seven classes in the game, so that’s a lot of improving.
  • 19 new Ascendancy Classes that bolster your new character in the sequel.

Check out the rather dark trailer and sweet revamped gameplay below.

Looks good, right? Well, Path of Exile 2 is still a long way off: Grinding Gear Games said it won’t likely even begin beta testing until very late in 2020. Never fear; Path of Exile expansions will continue to release on their regular three-month schedule, with content that will be available in both Path of Exile 1 and 2 campaigns.
