Trion Worlds has offered up an official preview of RIFT‘s 2.3 patch known as Empyreal Assault, which will signal the game’s switch to free-to-play.
The patch adds a brand new zone to the game known as Dendrome, which features lush jungles and windswept dunes. In this new area players can find artifacts, new events, and several new challenges. 2.3 also sees the introduction of a new Chronicle, Queen’s Gambit, as Trion explains, “Brave a merciless new Chronicle to stop their schemes before the Architects turn the tables on the Awakened and summon a far greater danger to Telara.”
Finally the patch introduces a new system called Strongholds: “The war against planar invasions takes to the skies in new player-summoned Strongholds, multi-tiered fortifications manned by a variety of friendly forces. Fight off new threats to Telara while flying between jump pads and platforms. Just remember to bring friends, as the most daunting invasions will lay siege to Strongholds tuned for 10-70+ players!”
Patch 2.3 will go live on June 12 alongside the switch to free-to-play.
