'Ashes of History' update coming to Rift next week

2011-09-21 20:30:00·  2 minute read   ·  Patrick Hancock@therealhancock

Rift players are in for a treat, as next week will see the release of Rift 1.5 which comes with a lot of big features. Some of these additions are things you might expect from a paid expansion instead of a simple client update. Here's just some of what you can expect:

  • Planar Attunement - This new system allows players who have already reached the level cap of 50 to spend XP on Planar Attunement points to help increase their skills.
  • Chronicles - You and a friend can take on Chronicles, which lets you explore story-driven dungeons like Greenscale's Blight and Hammerknell and take part in the world's lore.
  • Veteran Rewards - Rewarding loyal players, veteran rewards will grant you item bonuses in regards to how long you've been subscribed to the game. While most of the items seems to be gear, there are some pretty useful items in there as well.
  • AddOns Beta - You will now be able to customize your UI with fan-made "AddOns." It's always so heartwarming to see a game go the extra mile and extend some extra love to their community.

There's even more mentioned over on the official update site for you to check out. It looks like they're trying their hardest to keep high-level players entertained as long as possible, which I know is one of the hardest tasks for MMOs to accomplish. It just seems like too many MMOs are heavily lacking with end-game content these days.
