Path of Exile latest expansion is set to bring great changes to the game, including new stories Conquerors of the Atlas and Metamorph League. Players will also get new abilities, like the ability to shapeshift. Meaning both games lead to a shared Atlas Endgame. While Grinding Gear Games is calling it a sequel, this isn't quite a brand new standalone followup to Path of Exile, but instead the game's substantial 4.0 update version with new content, classes, systems, physics, graphics technology, and more. The current Path of Exile development schedule will not be affected.

Path of Exile developer Grinding Gear Games announced the sequel with an atmospheric trailer.

Several of these new ascendancy classes were shown off at ExileCon, and included the Ranger, Tactician and Beastmaster classes alongside teases for the Atmost, Marauder and Reaver.

Notre Dame sellout streak expected to end at 273 games
Notre Dame sold out their next home game against Purdue on September 28, 1974 and has had a full house ever since. Notre Dame's 78-13-1 dominance has often provoked criticism from outsiders as to why the series has continued.

The new, seven-act campaign is set 20 years after the death of Kitava, and will be available alongside PoE1 campaign - both storylines conclude into the same endgame content. PoE2 will include all the expansion content that's come to the game over the years, while making engine improvements and adding a host of new features.

The characters selectable fall into similar archetypes as the first title, that may dishearten some; yet with 19 new ascendancy classes for them to pick through as they reach ever-higher levels, the meta-game is sure to be even more varied than it is now. It's now possible to six-link every skill your character uses.

Armor, weapons, character models and animation have also been completely redone, but all previous microtransaction purchases will still carry over from PoE 1. The announcement was made at this year's ExileCon. While the dev maintains that it will remain an independent company and that there won't be any big changes to how it operates, the statement that Path of Exile Mobile will be developed in-house sounds a little convenient when considering Tencent's stake in the developer. But in the meantime, there will still be Path of Exile expansion content coming out on a regular three-month cycle.
