Trion Worlds have revealed details of the second update to its MMORPG Rift, The Spoils of War, which will be available on the 10th of May.

The update includes two new raids, new zone events and support for Facebook integration, Looking for Group functionality and other UI improvements.

In preparation for the update, Trion is kicking things off today with the Spoils of War prelude.
