Trion officially announced today that RIFT’s first expansion, Storm Legion, will be hitting the stores this fall. Executive Producer Scott Hartsman said that the expansion will “triple in size” the amount of content and territory that players currently have. “RIFT: Storm Legion is about more, more, more”.
There’s a rather nice mini trailer below the key features section.

What really has grabbed me the most about Storm Legion is the additional soul for each Calling, player housing which I haven’t had the chance to enjoy since Star Wars: Galaxies and exploring the two new contents. During the time I played Rift, Trion really impressed me by how much content they pumped out and how they really seemed to listen to their subscriber base. Looking at these new additions I’m sure they have virtually ticked all the outstanding boxes, which also leads to a pretty big question…
Why haven’t other companies followed in a similar suit to Trion? Imagine if Blizzard took as much head to their subscribers? Sure they would have to wade through the trolls and crazy suggestions, but there’s some gold to be found that IMO could improve Warcraft.
Having not played Rift for quite some time this really has given me the itch again… time to maybe reactivate that account!
