Trion Worlds today announced that MMO Rift will get its first expansion, Storm Legion, sometime this autumn.
The expansion will feature an increased level cap, two new continents, additional souls and a whole new storyline for gamers to experience, as they try to take down Crucia, the Queen of the Storms.
New features will include:
"A VAST NEW WORLD

"The world of Telara is massive and sprawling, and players have only experienced a slice of what it has to offer," said Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer and Trion's Chief Creative Officer.
"Storm Legion is the next chapter in the Rift adventure, and takes players deeper than ever before. The expansion offers players an incredible amount of content - new zones, huge overland boss fights featuring hundreds of players, and ‘Dimensions' a feature akin to housing that lets players socialize with friends in their own customizable space."
