During PAX Prime, we managed to corral Rift Executive Producer Scott Hartsman for a chat about the upcoming Storm Legion expansion. We found out lots about cross-faction grouping and about "dimensions", Rift's unique brand of housing. Check it out before leaving your comments.
My first question right off the bat was about 'housing' which Scott immediately corrected by making a rainbow arc with his hands and saying, "Not housing. Dimensions!"
Looking appropriately chagrined, I asked again about dimensions that will come with Rift, the game's own unique take on the much more pedestrian housing that most games embrace. Scott explained to us that there are so many great places in Telara, so many beautiful locations that it's only appropriate that players should own a piece of it. He further told us that the team had wanted to implement the idea for a long while and was so committed to the idea that over ten individuals had a hand in creating the dimensions feature that will ship with Storm Legion.
