Who doesn't like a surprise every now and then? Rift fans will be getting one in tomorrow's newsletter according to Sr. Community Manager Cindy "Abigale" Bowens. In a post made earlier today, Rift's forum mistress posted that the next Rift Watch newsletter issue is due to hit inboxes tomorrow and there will be a "big surprise" included. It's safe to speculate that Trion may be giving away some of its 500 VIP beta keys for getting 74k of its targeted 75k "Likes" goal on the game's Facebook page, or perhaps they have something of a larger scale in mind. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter on the official Rift website via the account page to find out what the surprise is tomorrow. If you've previously signed up for the newsletter, be sure to double check your accounts as the account page changes appear to have removed some players from the newsletter sign up list.
Rift's fifth beta event is scheduled to begin next Tuesday with "Battle of the Ascended", which will boost the game's current level cap to 30 and open up the new zone of the Scarlet Gorge and the Foul Cascade dungeon.
