Are you ready to recruit the ultimate team of rogues and ruffians to break into secret vaults and walk off with a mound of treasure? Sure, that's the plan — but the best plans can go way, way wrong. Even in Path of Exile. Path of Exile: Heist league hits the game on September 18 on PC and September 23 on consoles, so it's not far away at all.

Heist contains a slew of new mechanics and features that have you exploring a rogue hideout, recruiting characters for your crew, equipping them with loot, and plotting out missions. Yep, you'll be doing all manner of thievery from lockpicking, find ways through doors and over chasms, and of course, demolitions. Utilize maps to find the best route to the treasure, and of course be mindful of guards and alarms. Oh, and you have to get away too. No problem right? It's a full-blown Ocean's Eleven scenario with you and your customized crew as you attempt to bust out with a cache of treasure. And in that horde of glistening prizes are rewards you select prior to the mission itself, allowing you to tailor incredibly valuable loot to your character and specialization.

Marvel's Avengers' First Post-Launch Hero Is Kate Bishop

During its War Table stream, Crystal Dynamics announced that the snarky archer Kate Bishop would be Avengers' first post-launch playable hero. Players will experience an additional narrative that showcases new villains as well as the highly-anticipated Avengers mainstay, Hawkeye.  While Hawkeye and Bishop - at first glance - may have similar capabilities and weapons, Crystal Dynamics promises that Bishop will have her own individualized combat moveset and gear. 

The War Table stream also covered upcoming limited-time and seasonal events that include weekly missions. Crystal Dynamics also unveiled the raid-inspired AIM Secret Lab endgame mission which looks to pit high-leveled, four-player parties against challenging objectives and bosses. Players will be happy to know that Avengers will have plenty of post-game content to keep them busy long after they've completed the extensive campaign.

Fall Comes To Animal Crossing: New Horizons

We praised Animal Crossing: New Horizons for its quirky gameplay, large cast of colorful villagers, and seasonal events. Players in the Northern Hemisphere that boot up the game today will notice that fall has finally arrived!

In addition to new critters and fish to catch and donate to the museum, acorns and pine cones can be collected from trees and used to craft items from fall-themed DIY recipes. Similar to the plethora of updates that came with the summer season, new collectibles, critters, and color palettes will shift over the coming months.

Halo Infinite Teams Up With Monster Energy

Halo Infinite Teams Up With Monster Energy

While Halo Infinite is delayed to 2021, a partnership between Monster Energy and Halo Infinite begins now. You can pick up Monster Energy Halo Infinite drinks to earn XP bonuses, bank them, stack them, and get ready to put in those long energy drink fueled shooty hours.

Okay, so XP bonuses are nice but what else? Snapcodes. Yeah that's right. Halo Infinite Snapchat filters. I don't know what the hell people do on Snapchat to be honest, but I had fun with the filters on Instagram once, so it's probably pretty cool.

Finally, the partnership has a veritable arsenal of weapon skins, weapon emblems, and player emblems to unlock. These are probably the most enticing reason to get players to pound some cans of caffeinated candy. They actually look pretty slick.

Riot Games Reveals A Trailer For Tellstones: King's Gambit

Riot Games has all kinds of projects going on right now. You know, they just launched an expansion for Legends of Runeterra that's pretty awesome, I've been summoning Celestials left and right and man it's a pip. But anyway, this is about a new board game. That's right, those things we play in physical reality.

Honestly, outside of this teaser trailer and what amounts to a skeleton website, we don't know much about Tellstones: King's Gambit. We do know it's based inside the world of League of Legends. Shocker there, hunh? But hey, whenever Riot is making a new game or something it's probably a good idea to check it out. You can watch the cool trailer below!

According to an Ubisoft support page, the PlayStation 5 will not feature backwards compatibility for PS1, PS2, or PS3 games. While not exactly a shocker, any scrap of information regarding the upcoming console release is a tall drink of water in a knowledge desert, as we wait patiently for pricing and release date information.

Frogwares Unveils Details For Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One

Ready to solve some weird crimes and wild puzzles? Of course you are. Dude, they're going to hang an elephant or something, what the hell? Frogwares has pulled back the curtain on some of the details on Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One. The game is expected to launch in 2021, coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Frogwares is expecting to show off a gameplay deep dive in December of this year or January 2021 to whet the appetite for mystery.

A new trailer showcases many of the details, but there are a few tidbits of other relevant info as well. The game is looking like a 15 hour or so completion for critical path/main story, with a "complete" run hitting the 30-40 hour mark. You can also unlock cosmetics to change the look of Sherlock as well as alter the look of your mansion as you progress through the game.
