Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

The Breach league and Hardcore Breach league were past challenge leagues. The leagues started on 2 December 2016 20:00:00[1] along with the release of version 2.5.0, and ended on 27 February 2017 21:00:00. There were 40 optional challenges, and players were rewarded with Breach-themed microtransactions after finishing 12, 24, and 36 challenges.

In this league, there were breaches that appeared in zones. Approaching a breach opened a parallel realm containing otherworldly monsters. The breach continued to expand as more breach monsters were killed until it eventually collapsed. Splinters dropped from enemies within the breach, which can be combined into a Breachstone to challenge the Breachlord in their realm.

All characters and stashes were moved to Standard league and Hardcore league respectively when the leagues end. Characters that died in the Hardcore Breach league were immediately moved to the permanent Standard league.

Challenges and Rewards

The Breach leagues included 40 optional challenges. Completing them awarded the following microtransactions:
