RIFT Patch 1.3 Coming June 22
When we chatted with Scott Hartsman a few days back, we knew that a new RIFT update was in the works. Today, Trion has announced exactly what it is, and when we’ll see it.
In a post on the official RIFT forum the new update is announced for a June 22 launch, and is described as follows:
Hammerknell, the great dwarven city has laid dormant in the hills of the Moonshade Highlands…the keepers of its secrets extinguished when the halls fell to unknown evils.
Something once again stirs in the deeps and the forces of Death and Water struggle to unmask its secrets. With the release of 1.3 the battle for Hammerknell begins and once again all life on Telara is threatened by ancient foes!
Akylios, the Deep Lord and the mad patron of the Abyssal Cult, must not be set free – it falls to you to push back and destroy the abominations and horrors that lurk within the ancient fortress, lest all the world be consumed in the coming tide.
If what we learned in our interview was true, this world event has learned a lot from the mistakes of the previous one. I guess we’ll find out later this month. Until then, here’s the trailer for patch 1.3 (hit the button to download the HD version!).
