RIFT™ STRIKES WITH ITS FIRST EXPANSION STORM LEGION™ THIS FALL

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – May 31, 2012 – This fall, players of Trion World’s award-winning massively multiplayer online role playing game, Rift™, will face the dragon lord Crucia and her army of enchanted followers in Rift: Storm Legion™, the game’s first expansion pack. Storm Legion will feature an increased level cap, two new continents, additional souls, and a new storyline that is sure to mesmerize and challenge even the most seasoned Rift players.

“The world of Telara is massive and sprawling, and players have only experienced a slice of what it has to offer,” said Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer and Trion’s Chief Creative Officer. “Storm Legion is the next chapter in the Rift adventure, and takes players deeper than ever before. The expansion offers players an incredible amount of content – new zones, huge overland boss fights featuring hundreds of players, and ‘Dimensions’ a feature akin to housing that lets players socialize with friends in their own customizable space.”    

In Rift: Storm Legion, Crucia – the Queen of Storms – prepares to wreak havoc on the Ascended of Telara. Now that they have wiped out most of her Blood Storm competition, the time for Crucia to reveal her full power is at hand. Players will explore huge, previously inaccessible continents where they’ll fight to take down Crucia before she brings her legion from the Plane of Air through the mysterious Infinity Gate.
