RIFT: Storm Legion Expansion

I haven't played RIFT since last Summer, but Trion Worlds sure seems dedicated to supporting their MMORPG with consistent updates, events and periodic new content releases. There is a reason that RIFT is one of the few MMORPG's that started as a subscription based game, still is one, and seems to be doing just fine. The game definitely had some typical MMORPG gameplay elements, but there was so much to like about it. Now RIFT has an expansion coming and it looks to be substantial. They are going to be adding two new continents, an advanced class system, the level cap will be increased to 60, house type places that you can own called dimensions, capes, seven new dungeons, three new raids, grandmaster crafting a just a whole mess of new content. There is also going to be a colossus that roams an area of the world and is supposed to interact uniquely with the environment. They have a teaser trailer for Storm Legion, but thankfully Gamespot has a much more useful, and in-game, video for the expansion.


Storm Legion does not have a release date yet, but it does make me want to go back and play RIFT some more. Played through the game with a friend and it was a blast, but it may be hard to consider the expansion when Guild Wars 2 is on the horizon. If you've never tried the game go ahead and try their LITE version, which lets you play the game up to level twenty for free. It doesn't have a time limit, you don't have to enter a credit card and it is unrestricted. The game itself is down to the incredibly cheap price of $5, which should make those subscription prices far more bearable. Thanks for checking it out and have an awesome weekend everyone.
