Trion Worlds has announced that Rift's first expansion, Storm Legion, will be launching on the same day in North America and Europe: November 13, 2012. I'm not playing the game, and frankly, I don't know how many of you are either, but this trailer is pretty great. I feel like I'm missing out now.
The expansion will come in two forms, a $39.99 Standard Edition and a $59.99 Infinity Edition. (Add $10 to those prices if you're a new player.) The former comes with an in-game cape and early access to the "Exodus of the Storm Queen" dungeon in mid-October, while the latter edition adds a few more items: a Brevanic Portal Generator, a Cyclone mount, and a mini Regulos.
