    Default RIFT Producer’s Letter: Starfall Prophecy

    I’m incredibly excited to announce RIFT’s third full-featured expansion: Starfall Prophecy!


    Since our last expansion, the team has been working hard on the next big thing for RIFT. We’re excited to finally be able to talk about how we plan to continue the story of Telara, and the Ascended’s battle against Planar forces.


    The result of all this hard work is Starfall Prophecy, where the Ascended will continue the fight against Ankhet, who just happens to be hell-bent on obliterating Telara. Originating far beyond the Cosmos, this Tenebrean construct of monolithic proportions has burned its way through countless worlds and torn huge swathes of the Planes of Fire and Life loose from their primal realms. The Ascended must stop the denizens of these planar domains from destroying Telara before they can ever hope to battle the tower of Ahnket itself!


    You won’t just battle through the regions surrounding the tower; the time is ripe to take the war beyond Telara and the Plane of Water into the other invading Planes. To make this possible, we take our Instant Adventure system to a whole new level, with Planar Assault Adventures. Groups of Ascended will be able to band together instantly and launch powerful, coordinated attacks on the invaders’ own staging grounds.


    With Starfall Prophecy, heroes of Telara will be able to reach level 70, opening up entirely new ways to expand character abilities. Collect powerful Planar Fragments to customize gear, enjoy a whole new Active Upgrade system that rewards you for completing heroic feats and challenges, and collect Eternal Items of immense power. In other words, take all measures necessary to challenge the fate before you!


    It wouldn’t be RIFT without new and exciting ways to customize how you play. As such, Starfall Prophecy brings with it the addition of Legendary Powers. Offering options for each Soul, these Legendary Powers dramatically alter the way existing abilities work. It gives you a whole new layer of customization for your character!


    To power all these awesome new additions to RIFT, we’ve also dedicated a lot of effort to technical improvements over the last year. Starting with true Multicore support which we launched earlier this year, our efforts continue on with the upcoming 64 bit Alpha, which we’re targeting for late Summer. We’re committed to ensuring RIFT continues to gain in both performance and stability for an even better playing experience. We’re continuing to work on these massive improvements to RIFT’s core technology, while at the same time working closely with our partners at leading tech companies to find even more ways to improve RIFT for you.


    Even after Starfall Prophecy launches, there’ll be plenty more to come in live updates, as we release additional expansion content. Our first major update after launch will include a brand new outdoor region, the Tenebrean Schism, full of dynamic content for level 70s to enjoy. As well as a brand new level 70 raid. In a continued effort to make more of RIFTs content accessible to all players, we’ll also be introducing “LFR” – Looking for Raid. More to come about that in the future!


    We’ve got even more plans for Starfall Prophecy that we’ll share as the time draws closer.


    Let’s talk about how you can get Starfall Prophecy. In our many discussions of the best way to make new expansion-scale releases available, our goal is always to strike a balance between supporting the cost of expansion creation and making sure people can participate on an even playing field, while maintaining the robust content in the truly massive world that RIFT offers freely to all.


    Based heavily on your feedback from our most recent expansion releases, we’ll sell Starfall
    Prophecy as a simple premium expansion purchase, instead of dividing it into individual unlocks like equipment slots or the ability to equip expansion loot. We hear you!


    We’re happy to announce that preorders for Starfall Prophecy are now available! As a thank you to those who choose to preorder you’ll unlock the title “Starlord” or “Starlady” and have the opportunity to earn our newest mount, Opie the Artifact Squirrel, as well as earning several other exciting rewards by logging in throughout the summer and collecting daily Prophecy Tokens. Seek out Maguk in Tempest Bay to find out what all is available!


    You can see all the information about the expansion and the preorder bonuses here: http://www.starfallprophecy.com


    Thank you all for your continued support of RIFT from Beta through our fifth anniversary, and for sharing in this amazing journey together. RIFT is far more than just a game; it’s a bond that we all share and experience together. We couldn’t pick a better group of people to experience it with.

    Buying the pack worked better in the alpha test. I didn't get any ingame mail with the preorder items yet.

    EDIT: the toons that had the preorder items removed yesterday are not getting the preorder items today. probably going to give CS another headache today.

    No credit option? That's very disappointing. Would have atleast liked to see the basic version available for credits.

    You get a boa Starfall Prophecy for every toon on your account. Are you sure that's intended? I was thinking they were a currency to buy things off a store. need to make 50 toons real quick for Opie! brb

    or ill just open the 40 daily gifts in my bag lol- this wasn't well planned at all!

    Someone needs to go ahead and put planar pellets on the artifact venders.

    I had 200+ just last month but my bags couldn't take it anymore. Just had 40 for this and logged on to 10 existing alts for the others.

    You won't need to hoard them if they go the same route they did with Storm Legion => Nightmare Tide.

    I had almost 12+ weekly patron boxes and a few hundred Daily Patron boxes saved thinking the same thing. However, they eventually were locked to Storm Legion content in those Patron boxes. Only NT Weekly and Daily Patron boxes yielded the new NT content.

    No credit options hum? .. i think you folks get further and further away from the promise made when game went free to play.

    Yes there will be a way around it, but that's not quite as direct is it. You're moves since NMT have been towards less convenience and more expensive. This doesn't look cool to me.

    Plus I have waited 2 weeks on a customer service ticket involving a scammer. I will have to wait longer. This level of service does NOT inspire me to buy from the company.

    Seems that these are not giving loyalty when bought from the Rift Store. When I tried to buy it yesterday I got loyalty that was then removed again. Also the gift box seems to be empty, no prophecies or anything else in there.

    More interested in this than I was interested in Nightmare Tide. So there IS that.

    However, while I'm willing to buy this expansion, I'm not sure I will as long as it seems that the F2P-store-design maintains. If you're going more on the B2P side of things, then make clear that that's where you're going, instead of just adding a price tag to content.

    I just bought mine about an hour ago through the Rift store and I did receive loyalty.
