Rift: Action On Demand Feature Showcased
In the new Instant Action feature from Rift, high level players get to form a group and go on to dynamically generated quests. They are dynamic in such a way that each quest varies in difficulty based on the size and strength of the group playing. If you are able to form a large enough group, you may get attacked by hordes but will also be rewarded with more loot.
This customization of quests is really a great way of using Rift’s technology, which can also create dynamically generated portal invasions. The feature we are talking about is just the latest among new monsters and zones. Once you start an Instant Action campaign, you will be immediately teleported to join your group to Stillmoor or Shimmers. There, the fighting will begin. Trion has been planning to add this feature for a long time now but they want to make sure that enough time has passed since the huge 1.6 update launch that added the Ember Isle zone. The developers are still planning to throw out some great updates and continuous improvements regularly and consistently. Well, you could guess why Rift is one of the very few MMOs that are still charging its subscribers a monthly fee. Other developers could look for pointers from Rift’s developers.
It certainly is great to work through a world that keeps changing to accommodate you. Rift is such a world and I would not mind paying the subscription fee for what it is offering right now. How about you? What do you think of Rift’s new Instant Action feature?
