Path of Exile’s next expansion has been announced, and it’s coming very soon. The “Heist” expansion for Grinding Gear’s action-RPG will launch September 18 on PC before coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for its console release on September 23.
Path of Exile: Heist allows players to hire thieves to help them steal artifacts that will help fund your crew as you plan an even more elaborate “Grand Heist.” So basically, it’s Ocean’s 11 meets an isometric RPG.
The expansion adds the Heist challenge league and nine more skills and support gems, while curses, steel skills, and spells have been revamped. The Grand Heists, as they’re called, give players the ability to earn special weapon and body armor enchantments, trinkets, new gems, and other items.
