Grinding Gear Games Launches Path of Exile: Heist for PC and Mac

Grinding Gear Games announced that Path of Exile: Heist, the game’s third major expansion of 2020, will launch today on PC and Mac, and on September 23 (PDT) for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

In Heist, players will hire a crew of specialized thieves to assist them with infiltrating secure facilities to retrieve valuable Artifacts. While bypassing security, they must be careful not to trigger the alarm or they’ll be overrun with guards. Retrieving the artifact will automatically trigger the alarm and players will have to make a mad dash to the extraction point. If they can’t escape, they’ll lose everything they stole.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
