During one of the latest Public Test Shard (PTS) updates, testers found themselves downloading a rather large chunk of data. A few of those curious testers did a little clever file digging, and discovered that among the usual game files, some new in-game images were added, including what look like 15 new loading screen images and 15 small map thumbnail pictures (the ones that show up when mousing over points of interest on the map). And yep, we’re talking Storm Legion here. Pretty nifty find, eh?
Keep reading to take a peek. Special thanks to Sonoko on the official RIFT forums, who made this discovery and shared it with the rest of the PTS testers!
Here is a gallery containing all 30 images. Image spam, ahoy! The loading screens are the first 15.
