Trion Worlds has announced the official start date for RIFT: Storm Legion‘s open beta, allowing players to test out the expansion’s new content before launch.
The beta will take place between November 2 and November 5 and to partake all you have to do is create an account and download the beta client from www.stormlegion.com/beta. Once the beta begins at 10am PDT on November 2 players will be able to create new characters or transfer their existing RIFT character over.
“The first two closed beta stress tests were big successes, and we appreciate all the valuable feedback that we’ve used to improve and polish Storm Legion,” said Scott Hartsman, executive producer on RIFT and Trion CCO. “After months of hard work, we’re ready to show this incredible game to the world, and we encourage RIFT fans old and new to log in and try it out before the official launch on November 13.”
