Earlier this year I celebrated my 36th birthday. While some of you were negligent in getting me that pony I've always wanted, Trion Worlds
stepped up and delivered one of the best presents ever: the announcement of Storm Legion
, its first expansion for RIFT
. That happily coincided with my return to the game a week earlier and set me on a course of adventure and excitement all summer long.
And now it's here. By the time you read this, Storm Legion
will have gone live on the servers and Telara as we know will be forever changed. New continents, souls, dungeons, raids, rifts, stories, player housing, dual-faction cities, and more will wash over us and leave us floundering in its wake. What to do first? What to see and experience?
I have huge hopes for Storm Legion
. Trion's smartly releasing it after the crazy rush of most of the big fall expansions, and if the expansion lives up to even part of the hype, it could cement RIFT's
reputation as a premium MMO worth the subscription. Heck, I'll just be happy to see an influx of returning players and new souls (so to speak) because this is a title worth supporting and enjoying.
My head is a jumble of thoughts and plans, so excuse me while I gibber about anything and everything in today's column.
