The Spoils of War – Rift 1.2 Is Live
The Spoils of War is the second major update for Trion Worlds’ MMORPG Rift. It introduces Facebook integration, allowing players to link their Telara adventures directly to their Facebook profile, a new instanced dungeon system for 10-person raids called “Silver”, new zone events, an LFG (looking-for-group) system, an additional role and numerous new other features and content elements.
While many of these features are based on brand new designs and ideas or are patches and tweaks meant to make the game more accessible and enjoyable, quite a few of them are consistent with the feedback provided by the Rift player community.
The Spoils of War update will be live on Rift servers starting with May 10th.
