Path of Exile 2 Announces Couch Co-op and Cross-play in Early Access Console Launch

Grinding Gear Games announced during the PlayStation State of Play that Path of Exile 2, the upcoming free-to-play Action RPG, will be available in Early Access on multiple platforms later this year. The game will feature couch co-op, allowing players to play together on the same PC or console using two controllers. This new feature, along with cross-play and cross-progression, will bring the console version of the game into the same realm as the PC version.

Path of Exile 2 has a redefined controller experience, with dual stick controls, a new binding system, and a redesign of inventory management. The game is also made easier for new players to explore and understand the deep mechanics of the game, with simplified mechanics, skill tutorial videos, and a new help system.

The game will feature full cross-play and cross-progression on all supported platforms, allowing players to play with their friends on other platforms or move from console to PC without losing any progress. The launch and all updates will ship simultaneously with the PC version.

Path of Exile 2 is a next-generation Action RPG that features twelve character classes, each with its own three Ascendancy specializations, over a hundred bosses, 240 Skill Gems, and 100 endgame maps. The game will be available in Early Access on PC, macOS, Xbox Series X & S, and PlayStation 5 by the end of 2024.

Grinding Gear Games, the developer of Path of Exile 2, is a New Zealand-based company founded in 2006. The company is committed to ongoing expansion and new content releases for Path of Exile and has a team with diverse backgrounds ranging from artificial intelligence and software security to industrial design and professional tournament gaming. In 2018, Tencent acquired a majority interest in Grinding Gear Games.
