As a reminder, Path of Exile’s latest league, dubbed Heist, releases today at 1p PDT. Here’s what you need to know.

Heist was previously announced for a September 18 release (which just so happens to be today). Some key features as part of Heist League include 13 new active NPCs which have rich backstories, advanceable skills, and can be equipped with new craftable items.

Additionally, you can explore a new town-like area, The Rogue Harbor. Itemized world-areas that contain Heists and can be accessed from the outset of your character progress. New Item Types include Alternate Quality Gems, Replica Unique Items, Thief's Trinkets, Experimented Base Types, Body Armour and Weapon Enchants.

Seven new skills alongside reworks to existing Curses, Spells and Steel Skills. Additionally, there are over 25 New Unique Items, a new equipment slot for Trinkets, and is finally available on macOS. You can check out our extensive coverage of the skills, curses, and more here.

Keep in mind, you’ll need to fully redownload the game due to the optimizations made to the game. Are you diving into the Heist League today? Sound off below.
