And a snip from the interview:
Can you tell us a bit about how Riftâ€™s celebrating the anniversary in-game? What will we be seeing in the future?
â€œEach side has a goal to accomplish. This stageâ€™s server goal is about crafting and gathering; later on there will be a stage about PvP, and then other stages with other goals. Itâ€™s the first time weâ€™re doing individual goals as well as having overarching server-based goals with global rewards. We also have these literal carnival games; goofy things like the carnival horse race where you jump on the pad on the ground that represents your horse or the stampeding balloon pop, where youâ€™re in a pen with 20 or 30 other people jumping up and down on balloons. Again, a lot of it touches on the idea of having things to do in the game with other players besides killing stuff. But if players still want to stab things, weâ€™ve introduced a pick-up group for raids that looks back at old bosses in Telaraâ€™s past. This is one of our most unique patches yet!
We have things that weâ€™ll be launching short term and long term. One of the medium term goals that weâ€™ve been working on internally for a number of months is even larger and more epic-scaled PvP options. Another big oneâ€¦ weâ€™ve been working on prototypes of some new types of crafting in the game because, again, we are about more than just stab! There are some other good winners, but I think those are all Iâ€™m going to allude to right now. That is pretty meaty, though, isnâ€™t it? If anybody hasnâ€™t taken a look at Rift in a little while, I strongly recommend they do so during this event, because it is not just great adventurous fun, itâ€™s also hilarious fun. And we would like to invite everyone to come take a look!â€
