When it first launched, RIFT’s biggest selling point was its dynamic world events system that included the titular rifts, invasions, and more. It’s this system that Gamigo is looking to leverage with its new Planar Incursions event.
Testing for this world event is now on the PTS, with dedicated players putting it through its paces. It sounds as though it’s a series of daily quests that push back against an invasion, with the big incentive being gear that you can grind up to higher levels. Testers are reporting that the grind is a little too excessive right now, so hopefully Gamigo listens to them on this.
Another interesting development in RIFT’s world is the opening of an official Discord server for those who want to chat with fellow players and developers.
RIFT is currently in the throes of its “Typhoon of Doom” battle pass season, which is running through March 18th.
