RIFT 3.4: We’re Heading Into the Wilds on Wednesday, October 7!

Targeted for Wednesday, October 7, 2015, RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds brings a new Zone, new Calling, new Dungeon, new Warfront, and much, much more!

Sealed away from Telara for decades through the magic of the Infinity Gate, the Planetouched Wilds are a mystery, open to all at long last. News of the discovery entices adventurers to discover the lost lands and experience the wonders therein.


  • Planetouched Wilds: Although cursed by karma, these lands still retain great beauty and offer opportunity for adventure on an epic scale. Wander through the grasslands of the Cosmic Steppe, or visit the court in Shal Korva, always remembering that unexpected dangers lurk around every shadow!
  • Primalist: Take a walk on the wild side as a Primalist, the brand-new Calling launching in RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds! Learn to harness your Fury and Cunning, and unleash your Primal Avatar on your foes. Available via The Wilds Pack or the RIFT Store.
  • Rhaza’de Canyons:
Below Shal Korva awaits an immense network of canyons containing the ruins of fabled Rhaza’de. Somewhere deep within the steeply sloping walls, Teth Mornta has corrupted the mighty Ascension Machine, using it for fell purposes. Battle the minions of the Teth to conquer the corruption and earn eternal glory!  
  • Assault on Iron Tomb: Battle it out with the most dangerous enemies of all, other players! Your team is challenged to either loot or protect in this new Warfront Mode. Teams of mercenaries seek to control this tomb of the ancients, do you have what it takes?
  • Much, Much More: With a very satisfying boost to crafting, including two all new Planar crafting varieties, and a number of UI improvements sure to make your day, RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds has a little something extra for everyone. We also have additional major features in the works, like the brand new raiding tier coming later in 3.4! Check out the patch notes when they’re available for all the details.
Prepare, Ascended. October 7th will be here before you know it. We’ll see you again soon, in the Wilds!

I'm not gonna bother making a pros and cons list. Or a rating system. Or anything like that. This. Is. A. Very. Good. Game. My favorite part is the community. In all the time I've played I NEVER met a single jerk who thought he was better than everyone or was just plain mean. Get this game. It's free. What could you lose?

Having played Warcraft for a number of years I was looking for an alternative that offered something closer to 'classic' WoW gameplay. Although Rift differs from Warcraft in many ways to me it represents all the good attributes WoW once had in classic. The graphical update alone from WoW to Rift is something to witness. The gameplay is smooth and what really surprised me is although the game really encourages you to spend some of your hard earned cash, you can really play the game (costing you time rather than cash) without spending anything making it truly free to play. The quests are very similar to those you find in warcraft but there are rift events and group adventuring which are different from WoW and a welcome addition especially to beginners. I found the user base to be far less 'toxic' than the WoW community and they embrace rather than try to embarrass new players. I found that gameplay seems 'faster' than WoW action is more immediate and to me seems less repetitive (although I am still new to this and haven’t yet maxed out a character). The instances/raids are interesting and varied with some particularly good boss fights. You still get the same pleasure from loot drops as you do in WoW the 'talent tree' is also available for you to customize your character. I think Rift for me is better its more customizable more user friendly has new content that I have never seen, the community is by far one of the best and friendly online communities I have come across and it recaptures and then adds its own uniqueness to something I used to really enjoy in classic WoW.

Apologies to those that have read this and never played warcraft before but its the only experience I can really compare it to that will hopefully resonate with people out there. All in all highly recommended. I was so pleased with the initial free game I waited for the steam sale and bought Laethy's Fortune Pack which gives you 90 days of patron benefits among many other things. So far I don't regret spending a penny on this game.

Rift is a little 'smile because virtually every element of the game was caught by some other MMORPG and proposed in a similar, if not identical, to a group of developers whose creative effort has been, well, decidedly modest. And that does not do well in a market that is now lacking in ideas. Despite everything, however, the MMORPG from Trion Worlds is a bit 'a summary of the best of the genre and if it is true that developers are cloners Kaminoans worthy of Star Wars, it is equally true that the final product came on the market in one It was almost perfect, finished, content rich and free of burrs or technical problems: a job that deserves much praise, considering the disastrous launch and the paucity of the contents that characterized some newer products. In effect, Rift nowadays is the real alternative to the two best MMORPG theme-park market, World of Warcraft and The Lord of the Rings Online, and this is not a trivial matter.
