Storm Legion Beta – A Few Different Ways to Gain Access

By on Sep 27, 2012 at 10:00 am, in Buzz, News, RIFT  |  Comments: 4 comments

Trion’s talked about RIFT players gaining access to Storm Legion’s beta a few times now, but the team’s always shied from giving away much as far as the details are concerned. Yesterday, Elrar gave us a little more information on the official forums, where he also announced the current promotion that lets folks save pandas while pre-ordering the expansion:

Save a Panda by Pre-Ordering RIFT: Storm Legion now – We’re giving a dollar for every pre-order we get this week but that’s not all, anyone who has pre-ordered our first expansion will be invited to our upcoming BETA tests!

We’ll have more details soon and if you haven’t pre-ordered or are not a current subscriber you can still have a chance to be invited, but you’ll need to opt-in. Simply visit https://account.riftgame.com/ to sign up for your shot at BETA or just pre-order today, you’ll be protecting our panda pals while automatically guaranteeing yourself a seat!

Later on in the thread, he made two clarifications: Players who pre-order from a different retailer will have to affix their pre-order code to their account in order to grab guaranteed beta access. Also, players who purchased the Storm Chaser Edition, which is the one-year sub deal plus the free expansion and mount, will gain guaranteed beta access as well. Elrar also noted in a different thread that the Storm Chaser Edition will be available for purchase all the way up until the launch of Storm Legion, which is on November 13th.

We unfortunately, still don’t have a date for beta access yet, but at least the details are starting to trickle in.

    They gave us one piece of information during PAX when they said it would be an open beta. When questioned about this on both the official forums and MMO-Champion forums (places where Elrar has posted in the past), a response wasn’t given. Kinda feel a little disappointed that they would say one thing and do another.

      Yeah, I remember that. I’m not sure what happened, or why they decided to go this route. It wouldn’t surprise me if they came up with some beta giveaways, though.

      This is “open beta”..they didn’t say “public beta”. “Closed beta” is only when people within the company or within the rights of playing it can play it nobody else. “Open beta” is for anyone who has access via code, preorder, etc. “Public beta” is for ANYONE who wants to jump into the fun.
