Rift: Storm Legion expansion announced with teaser

Rift has been somewhat lost in the shuffle amid the titanic battle between Star Wars: The Old Republic and World of Warcraft. However, the title maintains a steady group of dedicated fans. And for good reason, it's easily one of the best MMOs on the market. And now developer Trion Worlds has announced they are prepping their new expansion pack for release this fall.

These aren't the first changes (opens in new tab) Trion has made to Telara, but they may be the most drastic. For starters, they're raising the level cap to 60, as well as two entirely new continents, more souls (talent trees), and a brand new storyline.

“The world of Telara is massive and sprawling, and players have only experienced a slice of what it has to offer,” said Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer on Rift. “Storm Legion is the next chapter in the Rift adventure, and takes players deeper than ever before. The expansion offers players an incredible amount of content – new zones, huge overland boss fights featuring hundreds of players, and ‘Dimensions’ a feature akin to housing that lets players socialize with friends in their own customizable space.”
