An interesting revamp/expansion to the 6 year old game

Path of Exile 2 Announced, Will Be Added Onto Path of Exile

At this past weekend's ExileCon - the annual convention put on by Grinding Gear Games for all the Path of Exile fans out there - the developers revealed there new projects related to their long-running action-RPG. The first of these is Path of Exile 2, though the name is a bit of a misnomer; it's not a full-fledged sequel, but rather a kind of revamp of the existing game that includes a new seven-act storyline. It is not, at this time, launching separately from the Path of Exile game, but instead will be included as a kind of update to it.

Obsidian, who just released the popular The Outer Worlds RPG, is shifting gears a bit with their next title, Grounded - a game where you have to survive in a backyard after being shrunk to the size of an ant. I mean, I guess every other iteration of a survival game has been done at this point?
