Over the weekend, the freshman entry from Trion Worlds entered its second year as a premium MMORPG. RIFT, a fantasy MMORPG rocking a classless system filled with dynamic content, launched in March 2011 to a solid reception. Since this time, Trion Worlds has met an aggressive content schedule, releasing a myriad of patches large and small and an entire expansion, Storm Legion. On March 1, the title turned two and received a new content patch, Carnival of the Ascended – Patch v2.2, to celebrate.
There’s a smorgasbord of activities for players of any type of dedication, from mini-games to games of skill to simple collections, spread across Storm Legion zones. There’s also the excitement of randomized PvP scenarios. The patch brings core (non-seasonal) content as well, including the addition of Tier 3 Planar Attunement, and hard modes of Endless Eclipse and Frozen Tempest.
Past and present players can rekindle their relationships during the anniversary’s free weekend, March 21-25, which coincides with the 20% increase to various statistics – XP, Favor, Prestige, etc – that runs from March 21 until April 4. Not to mention PAX East! Coincidence?
