RIFT - concept art
RIFT's ninth major content patch is coming next week. Conquest brings a host of new features to Telara, including three-faction PvP, a new raid, and a long-awaited mentoring system.

The PvP system features an alternate-reality version of Stillmoor. Players will fight to control sourcestone extractors, craft war engines, and "build up bonuses that last beyond victory." Trion is also bringing instant adventure to the Freemarch, Silverwood, Gloamwood, and Stonefield zones, and Ascended can now attempt to defeat Fae Lord Twyl in the Primeval Feast.

Finally, there's a new barbershop feature for quick appearance changes as well as a new Summerfest world event featuring scavenger hunts. Trion has also made some new video footage of its E3 Storm Legion demo available for download, so check it out after the break.
