The ARPG Stand-Off

Fire fire!

Over the past few days the ARPG scene has been bustling with plenty of news concerning the biggest names in the genre. We first got some new information and a gameplay walkthrough of Path of Exile 2 which certainly looks to make the original game far prettier and fast paced. I also love that this sequel is just essentially a super-boost to the original game as it will also be free to play and you can play both the first and second storylines in the same game, ow that’s what I call consistency.

The other big news dump was of course the start of the closed alpha of Diablo 2: Resurrected which showed off the small gameplay additions they are making and the complete visual overhaul of the game, with even the standard remake/remaster thing that has a button that makes the game go back to the original visuals. Overall it looks nice but due to the history of Blizzard remasters I will still be holding off until the reviews come in for it. I also find it funny just comparing these 2 projects as PoE2 is a completely free game but has so much more content and story additions than Blizzard’s current offering, I guess comparing it to Diablo 4 will be the big clash of the ARPG titans.

That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
