Into The Rift is the second expansion of the space sandbox Avorion.
In this hardcore add-on you'll explore the mysterious and dangerous Rift dimension. Thanks to new technology, it is now possible to send smaller amounts of mass (i.e. a few ships) into the Rifts. Scientists are now intensively researching these Rifts - and they need your help. Travel into the Rifts and uncover their secrets. Face their dangers, complete research expeditions, and earn powerful new rewards.

- Prepare your ship accordingly to master the dangerous new environments and uncover the secrets surrounding the origins of the Rifts.

New Captain Classes
With the opening of the Rifts, two new captain classes have evolved: The Scientist and the Xsotan Hunter. These two specialize in Rift missions:
- A Scientist will help you collect valuable research data in Rifts that you can either sell or trade for powerful subsystems.
- A Xsotan Hunter will attract large Xsotan specimens in Rifts that you can take down for epic loot.
New Dangers & Enemies
- Master the extremely hostile environment in the Rifts
- Fight never-before-seen Xsotan, new bosses, and centuries-old defenses - or take advantage of them.
New Legendary Subsystems
Recent research in subsystem technology has produced a series of prototype subsystems. These new subsystems combine the best of two or more worlds and ideally prepare you for the dangers in the Rifts.

New Legendary Turrets
