REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – November 13, 2012 – Storm Legion™, the highly-anticipated first expansion to the award-winning MMORPG RIFT®, launches today in North America and Europe. Veteran Ascended can now travel to the ancient continents of Dusken and Brevane where their skills will be put to the ultimate test as they face off against the dragon lords Crucia and Regulos, ultimately determining the fate of plane-ravaged Telara.

Tripling the size of the game world with two new continents, the capital city of Tempest Bay, seven dungeons, and three raids, Storm Legion is one of the deepest MMO expansions ever. An epic questline will open up new adventures, increasing the level cap to 60 and propelling players into massive new zone events and heroic content. Additional features include four new souls (RIFT’s classes), player housing Dimensions, capes, new rift types, and much more.

“Storm Legion is a labor of love, and we dedicate it to our incredibly amazing players.” said Scott Hartsman, RIFT Executive Producer and Trion’s Chief Creative Officer. “Their feedback and critique throughout the expansion’s development really pushed it over the top, making it a truly special experience. Thanks to them, Storm Legion is huge, dynamic, and incredibly fun to play.” 

Storm Legion is available now for purchase at http://www.RIFTgame.com/buynow, and at select retailers including, Amazon, Steam, Origin, Walmart, Best Buy, and GameStop. The Standard Edition of the game costs $39.99 for current players and $49.99 for new players. The extras-laden Infinity Edition costs $59.99 for current players and $69.99 for new players.  More information on each edition can be found at http://www.RIFTgame.com/buynow.
