Possibly one of the worst-kept secrets of the year (it was up for sale before it was even announced), the Starfall Prophecy expansion for Rift has finally been officially announced by Trion Worlds. This expansion brings five new zones and increases the level cap to 70. You can also expect new dungeons, a new raid, planar assault adventures and fortress sieges. The lore goes as follows:
“The Comet of Ahnket hurtles through the skies, devouring the planes. Now the Guardians and Defiant must unite against the sinister intelligence that guides the Comet and stop it from destroying their world.”
However, this isn’t a free expansion. In the same way that Guild Wars 2 and Star Wars: The Old Republic have paid expansions, you can pre-order Starfall Prophecy for $59.99 (Digital Deluxe Edition) or $39.99 (Digital Standard Edition). It’s not exactly cheap, but let us know if you think this new content for Rift is worthy of the price.
