Rift artwork for the Celestial Storm update

The Celestial Storm Update has just arrived to Trion World's MMORPG Rift, bringing with it so much content the developers are comfortable claiming there's "hundreds of hours" of it to explore. There's four new Primalist Souls to play around with, the Vostigar Peaks overland zone to wonder across, a whole bunch of new questlines, all new Raid Rifts, and the list goes on.

You can learn more by heading over to the official website, but do keep in mind that concrete information is a bit hard to find right now. If you just want the short version, however, here's the extremely brief teaser trailer showing off some of the new content:

Since the official website doesn't list this out for some reason, here's a an equally brief description of the new classes and the overland zone:

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.  If that’s not enough, there’s also the introduction of Normal Mode: Tartaric Depts, the full difficulty 10 man raid version of our first LFR raid.

Besides all of the new content, this update has also brought with it the annual celebration Summerfest. Throughout the event's duration you can engage in world mission chains and premium events, all in an effort to gather some of the new items such as: butterfly wings, summer-related accessories, a new Dimension for housing, and naturally, unique weapon skins. Have fun!
