Latest Headlines for Rift

  • Nightmare Tide's Underwater Wonders

    For the last three years, the heroes of Telara have done their best to staunch a seemingly-endless flow of planes-spawned elementals. Perhaps though, it's time to stop the flow at its source? Trion Worlds seems to agree, and this week they invited us to explore a world beyond Telara--the beautiful, treacherous, and surprising Plane of Water.

  • Is the Patron Status Worth It?

    It's no secret that RIFT has a generous business model. The slogan "No Tricks, No Trials, No Traps" has proven true and made the game a beacon for free-to-play design. There is a store, and Trion would sure like it if you used it, but if you don't, there is still a whole game to explore, all the way through endgame. That raises the question: why exactly would you subscribe and is it even worth it when so much is available for free? That's the question we're out to answer today.

  • Bindings of Blood Readies the Beatdown for Players

    Yesterday Trion launched Rift's Bindings of Blood Tier 3 Raids, the brand new cutting edge (or bleeding) edge endgame content for Telara's most ardent PVE players. These brand new 20-person raids will test the willpower of even the most dedicated Rift raiders, as on the PTS not a single guild was able to fell the two big bosses: Greenscale and Akylios. Bill Fisher and his team are confident it'll be a different story on the live server, but players are always surprising them.
