If you're like many of us here at Ten Ton Hammer, you've probably been enjoying the dynamic invasions of RIFT since its March 1st launch. But Trion Worlds isn't resting on the laurels of its newly launched title. In a recent press release, Trion announced a major content update for RIFT with its 30-Day update, bringing new massive invasion events, a chance at some one-time loot and a brand new raid zone, River of Souls.
Headlining the update is a new world event invasion led by the bride of Regulos herself, Alsbeth the Discordant. Alsbeth will lead an invasion against every zone in Telara over the course of a week. During that time players will have the chance to fight off new dynamic invasions and possibly earn a new Spectral Horse and a transmogrifying disguise that turns you into the rotting undead. These items will only be available during this world event and once those rift invasions are sealed, the chance to get those items goes with it.
Trion has extended the Founder's Pricing for RIFT through March 31st, so if you've thought about subscribing, you can do so before then for less.
RIFT™ ERUPTS IN WORLDWIDE DYNAMIC CONFLICT MARCH 30TH
30-Day Update Heralds Massive Invasions, Unique Loot, and New Epic Raid Zone
Trion Worlds today announced the first worldwide, fully dynamic conflict event for the immensely successful MMORPG, RIFT™. The battle for Telara intensifies as world-changing invasions from the Plane of Death engulf the planet, giving Ascended heroes a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of a key moment in the game’s history. Beginning March 30th, players will witness the true power of Regulos the Destroyer, and the world of RIFT will never be the same.
This robust update comes less than a month after the game’s March 1st launch, making it one of the most aggressive post-launch content releases ever for a new MMORPG.
Unprecedented Invasions & Exclusive Rewards
Starting next Wednesday, Alsbeth the Discordant will lead massive invasions across every zone in Telara, raising legions of liches, ettins, and gravemakers to battle Ascended. Over the course of about a week, participating players of any level fighting these invaders can earn hundreds of new items including exclusive rewards, such as a Spectral Horse and a transmogrifying disguise that turns Ascended into the rotting undead. But be warned: once the rifts are sealed, these items are gone forever.
Raid Zone: River of Souls
If Ascended are successful in their efforts to drive back the invasions, they can journey to the “River of Souls” 20-man raid zone at the edge of the Plane of Death where Alsbeth the Discordant is reanimating the recently departed and recruiting them into Regulos’ army. Guardian and Defiant heroes will have to wade through these decaying hordes to reach Alsbeth and make her account for her abhorrent crimes.
The Founder’s Pricing plan for RIFT has been extended until March 31st. Details for all plans are available at www.riftgame.com/subscriptions.
Adventure in the world of Telara as either a noble Guardian or technomagical Defiant and enter a dynamic fantasy where 8 primal forces battle for control in an ever-changing landscape. Build your own class using the Ascended Soul system, embark on epic conflicts that bring you into the story, battle others in exhilarating Player vs. Player combat, achieve new heights of power by tackling epic raids, and so much more.
