Rift Prepares for Celestial Storm By Making Its Latest Expansion Free

Today is a huge day for Rift. Its major expansion release that arrived earlier this year is now available at no cost. Originally known as Starfall Prophecy, the expansion was recently renamed to Prophecy of Ahnket to avoid confusion with a children's charity known as Starfall Education Foundation.

Prophecy of Ahnket includes a variety of attractive content, including five zones, casual and hardcore group content, legendary abilities, looking for raid functionality, and much more. While previously it had an MSRP of $39.99, it's now part of the base game for all players.

The move comes just weeks before the arrival of Celestial Storm, a free update that will add all the following:

  • Four New Primalist Souls - Powerful new souls offered for free to anyone with the Primalist calling. The souls aid players in their battle against Storm Queen Crucia and her assault upon the Tenebrean Tower Ahnket:
    • Farseer - A powerful area of effect healer who twists and bends the threads of fate to divert harm and adjust the very flow of time itself.
    • Primal Lord - A damage dealer who summons beasts of the wilds to augment their powerful swings with primal force. They deal with single targets incredibly well and tear through their foes with bestial efficiency.
    • Predator - A stealthy burst damage dealer who emerges from the shadows to unleash death and fire upon their foes, striking with the fury of an Apex Predator. Their victory is assured with the speed and ferocity of their strikes.
    • Mystic - A support soul who bends the elements of Life and Air to empower and embolden their allies. Bringing the force of a storm under control to aid their adventures makes the Mystic a powerful member of any group.
  • Vostigar Peaks - Join your fellow Ascended as you battle the forces of both Ahnket and Crucia in an attempt to stop two of the most powerful beings in Telaran history from destroying all those around them. Adventure in an all new level 70 outdoor zone loaded with new quest lines, massive Raid Rifts, tougher raids and even lend a hand to some of RIFT's most iconic heroes.
