THE SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF RIFT® BEGINS WITH THE CARNIVAL OF THE ASCENDED

Trion Worlds ushers in RIFT update 2.2 with annual Carnival festivities, new gameplay features, subscriber bonuses, and the Steppes of Infinity Zone event

With the dragon Crucia sealed and her forces pushed back, the annual Carnival of the Ascended has come to Port Tempest, bringing with it dragon piñatas and festive parades to celebrate all throughout the world of Telara. Ascended young and old can join in the festivities, and while the threat of the Storm Legion still lingers in the distance, now is a time to renew, recharge, and be proud of victories hard-won.

The latest game update hits servers today and introduces key features including a new PvP Warfront mode, additional Planar Attunement tiers, extra collectibles and items, and subscriber bonuses.
