RIFT, Trion Worlds’ fantasy MMORPG known for its massive battles and unique class-building system, is now celebrating its five-year anniversary! RIFT kicks off its celebrations with a wealth of promotions and in-game events that offer exclusive rewards for players all across the world of Telara. With three dozen major updates and expansions, continuous innovation in helping players adventure together, and more than 50,000 years of playtime in its first half-decade, RIFT continues to thrive and evolve.
“Five years after we introduced truly massive battles and unprecedented character class building flexibility, RIFT is still the leader in offering players those experiences, and plenty of other innovations that get you playing with other people, faster than any other MMO” said Chris Junior, RIFT Game Director at Trion Worlds.
Originally launched in March 2011, RIFT puts players into the role of the Ascended as they fight to defend the elemental world of Telara and cleanse the world of the threat of dragons. Far from slowing down, development on RIFT continues at a rapid pace: “We have big plans for RIFT this year and beyond, including some amazing stories and major tech advancements that we’ll be implementing next month in 3.6,” said Junior.
From March 10 through April 5, players will earn 5th Anniversary Tickets for completing zone events, random dungeons and Warfronts, and weekly crafting quests. The more tickets players earn, the more in-game prizes they can unlock. Prizes include the Mystical Carousel Ram (mount), the Haunted Terminal (dimension), Tier 3 raid gear (rings and earrings), 46 capes (one for each soul), and much more.
