Can you believe it Ascended?

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:

RIFT: One Year Later

Posted by on 3 February 2012

Hello, Ascended!
