RIFT is getting a new in-game event as a tie-in to the upcoming Storm Legion expansion.
Update 1.11: Tempest Rising includes an overhaul to the Ascended Soul system and a new World Event which will "change the face of Telara."
The Tempest Rising World Event tasks players with fighting off invasion forces in the capital cities of Meridian and Sanctum.
Players who have pre-ordered Storm Legion will gain early access to the expansion's first dungeon, Exodus of the Storm Queen, with the release of the 1.11 update.
No solid release date for 1.11 has been announced, but it's “coming soon."
Storm Legion launches November 13.
