The people over at Trion have been super busy lately. They announced the upcoming Rift three-faction PvP which is currently available on their public test server and now it looks like they’ve taken to sending strange packages to PC Gamer.
I think they might need some sleep.
The package that arrived at PC Gamer was a wooden box marked with the words “A Storm Is Brewing”. Inside the box they found the following:
- two posters depicting raids in both World War II and the American Civil War
- a liquid level marked with the number 10
- four soles of shoes, six rusty key rings along with one golden one marked “Port Tempest”
- a felt bag containing five glass prisms of different sizes
- a red, hooded cloak
PC Gamer writer T.J. Hafer was assigned the task of figuring out what all these items meant and after some deduction decided that all together the items equal a new expansion for Rift. And if Trion isn’t just messing with him — the expansion will feature a 10-level cap increase, two raids, four additonal souls, six more areas, a new city named Port Tempest and something to use Prisms on.
If Hafer is right about all of this, I expect to see some of these things popping up on the public test server sometime in the future.
