have been a much-requested feature for RIFT
ever since the dimensions feature
debuted with the game's Storm Legion
expansion in November of 2012. Yesterday brought some good, if vague, news for players waiting on PvP dimensions: They're still in development, but no ETA is available.
Pithos (of the RIFT
development team) explained via the game's official forums that the release date depends on "how many features [the team] want[s] to launch with, and how often other tasks take priority." He also explained that the team has a very basic version working that includes start points, graveyards, and respawning.
Make of that what you will.
