RIFT 2.5: Song of Dreams Coming November 6th
Trion Worlds recently announced that RIFTs 2.5: Song of Dreams update will be hitting live servers on Tuesday, November 5th, 2013. Fansite RIFT Junkies sat in on a livestream event with Trion and summed up what the devs have planned for next weeks update and beyond. According to the report, 2.5 will be released in chunks rather than all at once and include a new sliver raid, new chronicles, and a questline that will introduce new underwater content, which serves as a prelude to RIFTs 3.0 update, something a bit further out.
Trion will be posting an official update page prior to next weeks release so stay tuned. In the meantime, you may want to give the summary from Rift Junkies a read.
