Storm Legion’s final beta weekend, which is a completely open beta, begins this morning at 10 AM PST, and one of the new features we’ll be getting to test out is the brand new Warfront Trion is adding in Storm Legion, Karthan Ridge. Trion is looking to do some player testing in Karthan Ridge this weekend, and is going to be holding a series of special events that include dev-slaying and nifty player rewards. Keep reading to see the full announcement, which was posted on the official forums yesterday afternoon by Elrar.

Beyond the two massive new continents, amazing dimensions, and more content than you can chew we’ve also been hard at work on delivering solid improvements to PVP and expanding our repertoire of available Warfronts.

Yes – there is a new warfront coming and its name is Karthan Ridge!

You and your team will need to wrest control of an explosive then detonate it near key points in your enemies base. Of course, we’ll be using this BETA event as a way to test the gameplay, so anything can change based on your feedback.

As an added bonus – we’ve got some rewards to earn for your efforts, here’s what you can earn all weekend long:

  • Participate in a Karthan Ridge Match
    Reward: “the Ridgerunner” title
  • Be in the top 100 Kills for the entire weekend
    Reward: “Gun for Hire” title
  • Be in the top 100 Saviors for the entire weekend
    Reward: “Combat Medic” title
  • Most Kills for the Weekend (total, not Killing Blows)
    Reward: Future PvP Reward named after a live character of your choice, of course pending our approval!

If you’re into PvP we encourage you to take part in as much as you can but we’ll also have an event each day to get as many people as we can into the fray!

Here’s a schedule for your convenience:

Anyone who kills a Dev in a Warfront during these events will earn “the Rebellious” title for all their characters.

Friday, 11/2 @ 4-6PM Pacific (11PM-1AM GMT)
Shard: BETA
Warfront: Karthan Ridge

Saturday, 11/3 @ 4-6PM Pacific (11PM-1AM GMT)

Sunday, 11/3 @ 4-6PM Pacific (12-2AM GMT)

Bring your game face – we’ll see you there!

This final beta event ends on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 8 AM PST and can be enjoyed by all players of RIFT, current and former, and anyone who wishes to download the beta client and give Storm Legion a try.

Also, a bit of news for players who enjoy Conquest:

There will not be a new Conquest at 2.0 release. We have our eye on several locations in the new world for an updated map in the future.

Speaking of Conquest and 2.0 – The existing map will not be available for some time after 2.0 launches. It is intended to be a max level feature and it requires critical mass of players. It will return (likely with some tweaks) after we feel that there is enough critical mass.

    A new PVP level! Bring out the champagne, it’s about bloody time!

    Frankly I never understood why Trion Worlds made so few PVP worlds. The ones they have are good, but if they can create two new continents (triple the current world size or whatever) I think they can crank out just a few more PVP zones. Are PVP worlds zones harder to create or something?
