Los Angeles – October 6, 2016


New Dungeons, New Mounts and New Increased Level Cap Now Available in Action-Adventure MMORPG

Riders of Icarus, the free-to-play action-adventure game that combines the fantasy of an RPG with the ability to tame and collect a vast number of unique creatures, today introduced another new zone for players to explore and conquer. Available to all players level 35 and above, the “Rift of the Damned” update expands the beautiful world of Riders of Icarus with a realm completely suspended in the sky. The update also delivers more flying mounts for Riders to capture and take into battle against grandiose new bosses on their quest to reach the new level cap of 40.

The Rift of the Damned is one of our most unique content updates yet,” said Hoon Seok, producer of Riders of Icarus. “The otherworldly lore behind this area allowed us to make some very different design choices regarding the environment and mounts, many of which were inspired by player feedback. We look forward to learning what our community thinks of the new zone and everything within it, and hope the content will entice new players to join the adventure as well.

The twilit new realm, Tritael Rift, is a prime zone for mounted aerial combat, and players should stay alert for the creatures adept at using the darkness of this cataclysmic rift to their advantage. New warped “Void” mounts are now available for players to collect, each more challenging to tame than the last.
