Hellbug Season began in Defiance this week, but it appears that the creepy crawlers have also managed to sneak their way into RIFT through new “Invasion Species” rifts, which can spawn in any zone. By completing the unstable stages of these rifts, players will have a chance to earn a variety of new hellbug mounts and companions, including the rare Toxic Hellbug.

You can check out the RIFT Livestream to learn more or just hunt them down in-game.
