Rift™: Ashes of History Hitting Servers Next Week

Learn what it truly means to be an Ascended next week when Trion Worlds releases Rift™: Ashes of History, the fifth major content update to the popular MMORPG. In the six months that game servers have been live, Guardian and Defiant heroes have travelled to every corner of Telara, vanquishing planar invaders, fighting for their faction in Warfronts, and exploring the world’s many dungeons.

Now the time has come for players to begin a fresh chapter in their Rift journey as new, sinister threats begin to emerge. Ashes of History kicks off the game’s next evolution with a host of new features and additional content, including post level-50 advancement, duo dungeons, a new Warfront, and much more.

Features in the update include:   

  • Planar Attunement - Advance beyond level 50 with Planar Attunement. Every quest completed and planespawn slain brings you closer to your next planar upgrade.
  • Chronicles - Teams of two players (or one, if you’ve got the gear) can take on Rift Chronicles, exploring breathtaking dungeons — including  Greenscale’s Blight, Hammerknell, and the Chronicles of Attunement—in fun, story-driven
  • New Warfront: Library of the Runemasters - PvP combat erupts in Hammerknell’s Library of the Runemasters. Race the enemy faction to control Dwarven secrets, and  rise through the ranks in this pulse-pounding new Warfront.
  • Master Dungeon – Darkening Deeps now sports a Master Dungeon mode.  Rebalanced for elite groups of Ascended, the Master Dungeon holds  epic challenges and epic rewards.
  • Veteran Rewards - Subscribers earn rewards the longer they play  Rift, including  special gear, a  personal vendor, and a  portable mailbox.
  • AddOns Beta – Customize your play with new AddOns Beta,  fan-created mods for your  Rift  user interface
