RIFT Patch and RIFT Lite Plans

Trion Worlds announces the launch of RIFT Lite, which allows anyone with a Trion account to experience the first 20 levels of RIFT for free with no playtime restrictions. Word is: "Players can create a character and experience the first 20 levels in the plane-besieged world of Telara, working their way through the zones of Terminus, Mathosia, Freemarch, Silverwood, and visiting their faction’s capital cities." This will launch alongside the upcoming version 1.7 "Carnivals of the Ascended" update for the MMORPG. This page has details on the version 1.7 update, which is "coming soon," and here are some "quality of life" improvements it will bring:

  • PvP Improvements - Smoother advancement and better rewards
  • Ascended Weddings - Share eternity with your soulmate, Telara-style
  • River of Souls Chronicle - Undead adventure for two
  • New Master Mode Dungeon – Caduceus Rise
  • Expert Dungeon Overhaul - More options, better loot!
  • Better Endgame Equipment - Improved loot for your endgame Ascended

Have they released any real new content since launch? In a year they've put forth what? A few raid bosses and one dungeon? Not a lot of bang for your buck I'd say.

Actually they've added 3 raid instances with multiple bosses (River of Souls, Hammerknell Fortress, Gilded Prophecy). There are 10 dungeons that they continually update to be more challenging with Expert and Master modes, and unlike WoW/SWTOR the instances actually change when you switch difficulties, with more bosses and new areas opened up. There are multiple raid and dungeon sized Rifts that are puggable.

It's a lot of bang for your buck.

If you like end-game grind I guess. This is to me why the MMO genre doesn't work. This is why things like Cryptic's Foundry are not only necessary, but a great idea. Imagine how much new content there'd be in a year's time if the game had released with an editor the players can use.

I so want a new NWN game that has supoort for several hundred people. Imagine the PWs you could build.
