“Thousands of players have jumped into the new server, taking in all of the excitement and classic RIFT content on offer,” Trion says. “In the first month of the availability of Vigil, the RIFT Prime server, players completed more than five million quests and tens of thousands of dungeons. The server’s active population has stayed high since its deployment last month, and the first days of the server saw hundreds of players teaming up to conquer some of its biggest challenges in record numbers.”
In fact, players set a record in RIFT: “A dynamic event in Silverwood on day one had the most participants of any event in RIFT history,” according to Producer Amanda Fry.
What’s coming next? Raiding.
“In the coming weeks, players can anticipate the first raid to hit the server, where they will face off against the mighty dragon Greenscale, and even more exciting content.”
