E3: Storm Legion gives Rift more land, more adventures
by Allistair Pinsof

15 months and nine major patches later, Trion Worlds is looking to expand the real estate of Rift. With the addition of two new continents, Dusken and Brevane, the player space of the popular MMORPG has been tripled.

Trion Worlds said this is more of a necessity then a luxury, since it used so much of the game's current land mass in quests attached to recent patches. Storm Legion is going to bring some quests and unique additions of its own, as well, though it may take much longer than 15 months to fill up its enormous islands. The expansion will launch with seven new dungeons, three new raids, a new Chronicle (solo player instance), dimensions, and new enemies spread across the two continents.
