RPG Previews PC News MMO

Coming May 10th is a huge patch from TRIONWorlds for the game RIFT. This patch offers a range of interesting new features, as well as some features lifted from other major MMORPG games on the market.

The patch title ‘The spoils of War” adds these new features, features such as a new raid instance and social networking integration. Users of the game are now able to link to their facebook from the “Plane of bragging rights” in the form of youtube videos, screenshots and achievements from within the game. But not only does the update provide a new social networking feature, it also comes with some interesting gameplay additions, such as the long awaited 5th soul slot, the new wardrobe feature for outfit sets; as well as the highly anticipated new 10-man raid, Slivers, which promises to be a challenge for all players.

As with any major patch from TRION, starting from now in game, players can experience the prelude to the patch, which involves fire and earth Rifts opening all across Telara for players to defeat, as well as Golden Dragon Egg Fragments and other kinds of monsters.
