Denizens of the land rejoice! The Carnival of the Ascended is nearly here! Come join the devs on PTS Monday 2/20 through Thursday 2/23, beginning @ 3:00PM PST (10:30PM GMT) on Monday.
The Ascended have returned to Telara, bringing with them new hope for the future and turning the tides of war against the Bloodstorm. In this world we’re approaching the first anniversary of RIFT’s World-Wide release. It’s been a tremendous year and no doubt a cause for a party!
In a few weeks Telarans will be throwing you the biggest party yet and setting into motion the next chapter in RIFT. Two dragons slain, and two more loom on the horizon – take this time to reflect on the year behind, and all the ones to come and celebrate your achievements and the challenges before you! Below you’ll find concept art for the Carnival – and if you think these are awesome, wait until you’ve seen how our artists brought them to life in game:
What an amazing year it has been. As we approach RIFT’s first full birthday, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of the things that have happened since launch and discuss the thinking that will shape the year to come.
If you’re reading this, chances are you already know that we think about MMOs a little bit differently than everyone else. To us, everything is about the quality of the service, the speed of meaningful updates, and the relationship that combination creates with you. We never forget that you are the reason we do everything we do.
At last the day has arrived – since the release of Update 1.6 and Ember Isle the big question since last year has been: What’s next?!
As the first update of 2012 Update 1.7 answers that question with a mighty bounty of new features, content, and improvements. No matter your play style there’s something waiting for you in 1.7! We’ve added a new chronicle, powered-up PvP and endgame items and are introducing Ascended Weddings as our first Gathering. There’s no doubt 1.7 is a biggun – lucky for you there’s tons of information to sink your teeth in or log in to see it for yourself!
