Up to now, any battle you have played on the multiplayer Arena has resulted in gold and Honor rewards.

Starting today, you will be able to engage in ranked battles.

This basically means that player skill will be the only determinant of player rank, considering everyone plays with max army at the new multiplayer Arena. Read more »

Due to popular demand for an alternative to traditional RPG multiplayer, we have come up with an improvement to the player-vs-player combat (PvP).

Competitive multiplayer

When you return to the Riftforge playtest, you will immediately notice the new Multiplayer Arena.

In many ways, it is similar to the current multiplayer battles, with just one difference - no levels, no upgrades, no special troops.

OK, that's three major differences!

The point of the Arena is to allow everyone to participate in player-vs-player combat (PvP). Whether you'd like to play a casual or a competitive game, you will be playing on 100% level playing field. Or, to put it another way, everyone plays with a maxed out army all the time! Read more »

Riftforge Online RPG Easterhino mount

Riftforge is pleased to announce the creation of the first super rare mount, imaginatively called the Super Rare Rhino by the Guardians (or colloquially known as the Easterhino).

The new mount’s special features include a vastly increased hearing range as well as the first fully operational camouflage suit, apart from the ones used by the elite assassins. The suit assumes the Easterhino is ridden anywhere pink or purple.

The only downside is that this new mount is still very temperamental, so additional training is required before one rides it to battle. To get a passing mark on the test, it needs to go a mile without breaking a single egg.

Remember to sign up below for early delivery of the first fully trained Easterhinos. Hopefuls estimate the Egg-Mile test will be passed within a year!

Note: Easterhinos first appeared on April 21, 2011 as a teaser unit to mark Easter. No actual Easterhino mounts exist yet but other special mounts in more subdued colors will be introduced soon.

We are very excited about the first type of PvE missions: the patrol.

So what's a patrol mission?

Patrols allow you to earn gold and experience points while you sleep!

When you send a patrol out, this doesn't interfere with your regular gameplay. You can participate in any type of battle thanks to Riftforge's Rift.

More importantly, patrols help Riftforge Operations command to map out the frozen continent of Manirak and plan the upcoming Invasion of Icecrest. Read more »

Riftforge Operations Command is giving away a ton of gold, so come and join the Playtest!

When it comes to the gold, you must check our new tutorial system. It pays a total of 6,000 gold for completing the four tutorial missions.

Basic tutorial - 1500 gold
In this first tutorial, the forces of evil are manifested in some old barrels that the Riftforge quartermaster has decided to part with. Carpenters have been hired to make a few target dummies as well. Read more »

So what's assassination mode? If you are in the playtest, you know the current battle mode is called elimination.

You have to eliminate all enemy units in order to win.

We have just introduced several changes to spice up the battles.

First off, we have a new scoring system that is more flexible than the previous rules for elimination.

Winning Butcher Bay, for example, now requires only 400 points (4 kills), instead of the previous 6 kills.

This means games are quicker, and hopefully, there will be less surrenders! Read more »
