Brief Summary

  • PoE2 and PoE1 are in the same game, just 2 separate campaign but shares the same endgame content.
  • PoE2 campaign-route will be randomly generated, so does the map route too! Unlike PoE1 have a static progression. This also mean PoE2 campaign will never feel the same in every playthrough.
  • PoE2 is in the same game, that's also means our microtransaction that we bought from PoE1 shares across in PoE2 too.
  • Skill Gems will have their on sockets, instead of relying on equipment sockets. Thus, Orb of Fusing will be removed and "mega-migration". TL;DR: Every skill can be 6-link.
  • Equipment sockets only matters on what color and amount of skill gems can be equip in it.
  • 19 new ascendancy, that have to do PoE2's campaign to obtain them.
  • PoE2 will introduce bunch of new skill archetype; such as shape-shifting, and melee-wielding-bow.
  • PoE2 also adds a bunch of QOL, such as 1 button that enable all aura skill, and boss's life will always showing on top of the screen.
  • PoE2 also include bunch of new base item; such as crossbow, and javelin.
  • New interesting town hub, such as a moving-caravan-town.
  • PoE2 doesn't use new game engine, but upgrading existing game engine instead, which is still brings a lot more graphic improvement to the game.

Baeclast - Chris Wilson interview and Recent Topics from Community Podcasts

  • Tarkecat Question: PoE2 - How much of POE2 is down so far. Realistic for players to have it by 2024?
  • Chris Answer: Act 1 is 90% complete, work done all most acts. Act 2 it's 75% complete with later acts being started. Doesn't sound like a lot but had to work on setting standards and things in place and now gotten to full production mode. Plan to add 100 artists over the next few months. Will we see PoE before 2024 - are expectation is yes.
