Beneath the waves lies the city of nightmares, but RIFT
players exploring the Nightmare Tide
expansion will not stop there. Far above those waters sits Tarken Glacier
, a massive edifice of frost that stretches to the very boundaries of the cosmos. Players will be exploring this towering mass of ice, obviously, starting at the most basic ascent before moving up to the most distant reaches of the land.
Along the way, players will be working with Skelf pilgrims, fighting off vicious frost giants, and seeking the last stronghold of the near-annihilated Pelagic Order. There are port cities nestled within the glacier, great structures devoted to researching the frostbitten land, and marauding enemies from all sides. In short, it's exactly the sort of place players will love exploring and fighting through when the expansion goes live; check out the full preview
for more details on the lore of this region. The open beta for the expansion went live yesterday
, with the full launch planned for October 8th.
