The biggest feature change to the RIFT is probably free-to-play so far it seems servers are packed with new and returning players. But having hordes of players bouncing between dynamic quests and rift encounters is one thing, keeping them there is another. In an effort to keep their newly bolstered community engaged, developer Trion held a recent livestream in which they teased upcoming updates and features, and gave the first info on the 3.0 expansion.

Four new souls are planned: Support Cleric, Healing Warrior, Tanking Mage and Healing Rogue. You’d be forgiven for suspecting that Rift’s Soul design is based around arbitrarily picking words out of a hat, but in this instance, the added roles fill areas each class has been traditionally weak. The hope is to further expand the flexibility of styles on offer.

Other improvements will see a more customisable weapon and armour upgrade system, with more scope to define your style, and an increased role for companion pets. In addition, Dimensions will get an upgrade, with Trion looking to give player-owned housing more purpose.

The second expansion to the award winning Rift will be called Planes of Water where players can expect underwater and frozen zones. As to how many zones that will be available, Trion World did not specify.For more information about game check out

To me some game going F2P is more deterent then anything else. If I have already played and enjoyed ... and game went F2P (for which I'm always sorry) ... well I will for sure stay but only as SUB. Period.

Main reason why I left Rift and does not appeal anymore to me was that I discovered in expansion one spend more time to kill regular mobs then elites of same level in old one. That is silly and cheap way to keep players more time in. Wondering not more are bothered by player having 7k HP while regular mobs having above 25k and let say aprox half that ELITEs in old world.
