Buy a year of Rift, get its first paid DLC for free

Posted by: Chuck at 8/15/2012 6:16 AM
I was fairly impressed with Storm Legion, the first paid DLC for Rift, when I saw it at E3 this year. Not only were you getting the usual collection of new levels and goodies, but they are tripling the size of the game world.

Today they have revealed a new special where if you buy the Storm Chaser version of the game for $119.98 you will get the DLC, a year of game time, an exclusive mount, and an exclusive title.  While that may seem like a lot of money at first, a quick look at the subscription page reveals that they are  giving you the DLC for free in exchange for buying a year of time with the game.  If you want to act on this deal you will need to purchase the game from your account page for the game.




“Storm Chaser” Edition Rewards Loyalty with Free Expansion, Exclusive Mount, and Title

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 14, 2012 – The new Rift™ expansion Storm Legion™, launching later this fall, can be yours at no cost by purchasing 12 months of game time, Trion Worlds announced today. The new Storm Chaser edition gives those purchasing a year’s worth of game time the full expansion at no additional cost.  In addition, players are instantly granted two exclusive bonuses: the “Stormbringer” in-game title and fearsome “Landslide” mount, both of which can be used immediately. Available until Storm Legion launches later this year, the Storm Chaser edition can be purchased now from players’ riftgame.com account page.

“We like finding ways to reward loyalty,” said Scott Hartsman, Trion Chief Creative Officer and Executive Producer on the game. “This new edition is the perfect way to do that.  Storm Legion is the biggest thing we’ve ever created for Rift. We have a feeling players are going to enjoy exploring the immense continents of Brevane and Dusken, and customizing their own personal Dimensions. Now they can do it in style.”

Purchase the Storm Chaser edition now and receive:

·         12 months of Rift game time

·         Storm Legion™ expansion

·         Exclusive “Stormbringer” title

·         Exclusive “Landslide” Mount

Announced earlier this year, Storm Legion, is the first expansion pack for Trion’s immensely popular MMORPG. Adding ten more levels, a dozen sprawling new zones, four new souls, and customizable spaces called Dimensions, the expansion nearly triples the size of the world, giving players more of Telara to explore as they quest to defeat the remaining dragon lords. Storm Legion is currently scheduled for launch later this year.
