Trion has opened the gates set to unleash Crucia’s storm. The storm begins November 13th, 2012. For now, players and fans of RIFT can preorder Storm Legion! The announcement was made late yesterday, when Trion revealed all the details about the Standard Edition digital pack and Collector’s Edition digital pack, which is being called Infinity Edition. There is currently no physical box version of Storm Legion. There are, however, some interesting bonuses for purchasing the expansion before its release date.
Players who preorder either expansion package will gain early access to the new level 50 Storm Legion 5-man dungeon, Exodus of the Storm Queen, and will be able to explore the dungeon a couple weeks before the launch of Storm Legion. Pre-purchasers will also get one of the nifty preorder capes, exclusive to various retailers. Each retailer has a different cape to offer.
The Infinity Edition offers a few extra bonuses, including the very cool-looking gliding mount, Cyclone, shown below (click for the full size version), who rides in the forefront of this screenshot:
Also included in the Infinity Edition is a personal Brevanic transportation device that’s linked to our porticulum system, and a mini Regulos pet.
Now, for players who have already opted into RIFT’s one-year subscription offer, Storm Chaser Edition, it’s still possible to upgrade your Storm Legion expansion to the Infinity Edition version. This is possible by going into your RIFT account options and paying an additional $20. Regarding the cloaks, since they are tied to the retailer the preorder is made through, it looks like those who purchased the Storm Chaser Edition will be receiving Trion’s Storm Warden cape.
Trion also released an impressive Storm Legion video along with the release date announcement:
The screenshot of Cyclone above is taken from this video. If you look closely in the image, a third new mount can be seen, in the back. This new mount almost resembles a bear-type, armadillo creature. That’s the one I want! Maybe we’ll find out more about this new mount soon. In the meantime, this view was quite impressive, wasn’t it?
