Trion announced the second Storm Legion beta event late yesterday, which will run from Friday, October 19th at 10 AM PST until Wednesday, October 24th at 8 AM PST. Two big things to make note of– we’re getting a couple days extra on top of the weekend of beta time, and yes, the beta event will run during Extra Life 2012, which RIFT players will be able to take part in. Extra Life participants will be able to play on the live RIFT servers or beta servers in order to reach their allotted amount of time.
Here’s some info about what we’ll be seeing during the beta event, which will cover levels 1-56:
The zones of City Core, Eastern Holdings, and the death-touched realm of Seratos await exploration and conquest!
- Fight your way through new dungeons while revealing Crucia’s diabolical machinations
- Explore new zones including the twisted realm of Seratos and fallen civilization of Eastern Holdings
- Unlock and build in Dimensions, customizable player- and guild-owned slivers of Telara
- Experience Hunt Rifts, grandmaster crafting, puzzles, and more as you embrace your destiny in a storm of conflict and adventure
More to explore! Also, in case you haven’t heard, beta testers will be getting a title of “the Traveler”.
And here is Elrar’s announcement regarding Extra Life 2012:

For Extra Life this year you’ll be able to earn the titles and participate in the full 24 hours without being on a specific shard or even in a specific guild.
We’ll have focused activities on both LIVE and BETA for the full 24 hours as well as explore End of Nations, Defiance, and Warface.
We’re all on board to make it an awesome 24 hours, but we wanted to remove the restrictions so you can help test or play without feeling constrained.
As long as your account is logged in and active for a total of 24 hours in the designated time period we’ll make sure you get credit for it.
Finally, if you haven’t checked out Trion’s latest Storm Legion video showing off some awesome Dimension-building sequences, you’re in for a treat:
