Gamespot revealed today more details with an interview with Scott Hartsman about the upcoming expansion STORM LEGION. Click the link for the video, but here are some of the details we can gleam from the interview.
First the biggest bit of news: Expect to lose more sleep in fall of 2012.
Of these two continents, Dusken is the more fearsome. It’s a dark place, where death figures prominently in the world and the story; the themes are closer to horror than anything Rift has explored in the past. This is as it should be: it’s here that you follow the story of Regulos, the dragon god that hails from the plane of death. The other continent, Brevane, isn’t so obviously terrifying, though it’s no less vital. It’s on this continent, in The Eternal City, that Telaran civilization developed, though the warring factions that reside there aren’t necessarily always civilized.
Two continents, three times the size of Telara, called Dusken and Brevane that should be stunning in design. In my conversations with Hal Hanlin, the world development team has been honing their skills and the things they can do with their tools outclasses everything they’ve done before. The perfect example is the difference between Telara and Ember Isles. Ember Isles is gorgeous; so you can only imagine what the guys at Trion can do with two continents three times bigger than what’s out there now.
