Tears in the fabric of reality have formed throughout Wraeclast. Engage them to expose an alternate realm and reveal those who dwell there. Slay monsters inside the Breach to keep it open long enough to reap your bounty.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

The Breach league and Hardcore Breach league are the upcoming challenge leagues. The leagues starts on 2 December 2016 20:00:00. There are 40 optional challenges, and players are rewarded with Breach-themed microtransactions after finishing 12, 24, and 36 challenges.

In this league, there are breaches that appear in zones. Approaching a breach opens a parallel realm containing otherworldly monsters. The breach continues to expand as more breach monsters are killed until it eventually collapses. Splinters drop from within the breach, which can be combined into a Breachstone to challenge the Breachlord in their realm.

At the end of the leagues, all characters and stashes will be moved to Standard league and Hardcore league. Characters that die in the Hardcore Breach league will immediately be moved to the permanent Standard league.

Players earn exclusive microtransactions by completing challenges:
