Pack your suits and bait your lines: the season of high-summer adventures returns to Telara on July 25! With the worst of the Architects’ threats yet to be revealed, you can rest and relax – or romp through scavenger hunts, battle the forces of Swarmlord Karhgroth, fish, explore, and catch rare companions – all under a balmy summer sky.
This may be one of our biggest updates yet – if not ever. Filled to the brim with new features, updates, and a whole new way to enjoy the game you love!
We have a lot to go over, read on for what you have to look forward to:
The age of Free-to-Play dawns in Telara! With Update 2.3, RIFT is free for all players with no trials or restrictions. An expanded in-game store offers hundreds of items and services – from special mounts to faction changes and the ability to change your weapon’s appearance – while optional Patron subscriptions add extra benefits for players of all levels. Gear up, explore, and play your way into Empyreal Assault, but know there’s no time to rest: the earthen Architects hide dire threats in the mysterious wilds and wastes of Dendrome.
RIFT 2.3 unleashes a new Sliver and Chronicle plus Strongholds and open-world raid bosses across a massive new zone. Explore the secrets of Greenscale’s Crater and the living Kaaz’Gfuu Hive, join in Atrophinius’s revelries at the wild town of Hailol, and come face-to-face with forces of Earth vying for power after the dragons’ defeat!
Greetings once again, Ascended!
Your actions in-game are rewarded all sorts of ways – achievements, loot, tokens, exp, and just good ol’ fashion fun. But, we’ve always believed that players should be thanked for their commitment to RIFT as an MMO they choose to continue to subscribe to and play. Previously, we’ve given rewards based on how long players may have been subscribed to RIFT through unlockable Veteran Rewards. Obviously that won’t work when subscriptions are no longer required! That’s where the new Loyalty system comes into play.
