The Rift forum has been updated with a brief letter from the new Gamigo Rift development team. Without many details, the community is reassured that there is “work being done behind the scenes to build a strong foundation for the future”. The team is also looking for “specific feedback on the kinds of quality of life changes” players would like to see.
The Storm Legion has launched in Rift: Prime and players can take on the forces of the Storm Queen as she “wreaks havoc across Telara”. Players will find new raids and dungeons and the level cap has increased to 60. The Empyrean colossus Volan is also out and about, so there is lots to do for Ascended.
Rift Prime progression server will be getting a big update when the Storm Legion expansion launches on October 3rd. Subscribers will be able to explore new continents and dungeons as they uncover the lore and story behind the Legion’s arrival. To culminate the new experience, players will ultimately face off “against the mighty colossus Volan”.
The Rift site has been updated with a lengthy post to lay out developers’ plans for Rift through the summer of 2018. The post reveals plans for both Live and Prime servers. The letter begins with updates that have been deployed since the spring update including balance changes and other content patches.
From now through June 7th, Trion Worlds is offering a 7-day free trial on the Rift Prime progression server. It is unclear who can claim the offer, though it is probable that it is on offer to those who are or have been Patron members in the past. Players can download and try the game for a week’s worth of time without any restrictions on the account.
From levels 30 to 49, Rift: Prime Vigil players will not have to gain as much experience in order to level up. The reductions are smaller on the lower end of the span, with a higher XP reduction closer to 49. In addition, developers feel that soul changes deployed last week have met with success and that more callings and souls are being played throughout the game.
If you’re a Rift Prime player who’s dying to try new things out before they hit the live Prime server, you’ll be pleased to hear that Trion is adding a public test server in the near future. According to the post on the Rift site, the plan is to release the Prime: Omega sometime today. The team will update “forums and socials when it spins up”.
Trion Worlds has sent out word that Rift Prime’s first month of subscription-only play was a “rousing success”. Players completed more than five million quests and “tens of thousands of dungeons”. Rift Prime is not only subscription-only, but is a progression server that sees content rolled out over time. In fact, in the coming weeks, Prime players will be able to take part in the first-ever raid on the server to face off against Greenscale.
