Any idea if finally dynamic weather and maybe seasons will be implanted in the game? I tried to find information but dont find any, that confirm that point. I will like to see dynamic weather systems and if posible seasons too it will make the game more realistic and make you feel like in a real living world.

I love the idea of it (and the implementation in a lot of games) but I think in a Dev video or interview they said that they weren't as concerned with implementing it because of the way the rifts already change the land around them. Don't quote me on that one, but I think that was their reasoning. I'll see if I can't find the video I heard it in.. I've watched a million since yesterday and today lol

Yes please find it, i will like to see it, but i still dont understanding why rift system is unviable with weather system.

I can see a couple reasons why it wouldn't go in at launch(with tight time constraints). Due to the elemental nature of the rift, it could possibly mean 4 times as much art for rifts. For example, during winter fire rifts would need to melt the snow... water would freeze... etc.

While it would be really cool, its a lot of art for little gain. They sound a lot more focused on the gameplay than the cosmetics, which I think is better.

I supose rifts will be all arround the world, and for information i read in the game are going to be diferents types of zones (desert,snow-covered areas,etc...), so the work of making changing things when a rift pop should must be done to each zone.In this case, it doesnt matter if a region is snow-covered and one month later is yard the graphic work is already done, and they only have to implented the changing to the zone, maybe is really hard to do it but as you said will be more cool game with that.

I am pretty sure there will be weather events. Not in all zones though. Seasons I doubt due to the "theme" of zones. Would be cool though.

The weather i would like to see but if each zone will have its own theme i can see why they wouldn't do seasons.

It'd be difficult to have a hot summer seasons in an ice zone just like it would be hard to do a cold snowy winter season in a desert. However, you could get sandstorms in a desert or blizzards in an ice zone. That was the point I was trying to make.

Seasons might be tough with rifts changing the background and zone. I would think weather is in the game though.
