Gamers without Remorse
Rumors of an expansion for Rift have started to fly around the internet. “Storm Legion” is the name that Trion trademarked recently.
We can assume that Trion will do what most other MMOs have done with expansions (especially WoW):
But with Rift’s numbers on the decline, is this going to be enough to breathe life into the game again? Part of the problem with Rift has been it’s accessability to new players. It takes a lot of work on the part of a new player to get up to the level of gear to do current content. It’s daunting.
Maybe Trion will help redefine the MMO market like they did when Rift launched last year and redesign the progression to be less linear and more accessible to new players.
