RIFT three faction PvP will be available on the Public Test Shard on Thursday, 17-May @ 4:00PM PDT (11:00PM GMT).
Conquest PvP will allow players to engage in massive, cross-shard battles. Players will align with one of three new factions (Dominion, Oathsworn & Nightfall), earn rewards and bonuses for your team and earn bonuses that can be used outside of Conquest. Crafters will also play a vital role in every Conquest battle.
This looks to be very similar to the Guild Wars 2 World vs. World PvP, however that does not make it any less exciting for existing RIFT players wanting to do some cross-server PvP. Excellent job Trion, this actually makes me want to log into RIFT tonight.

"Join an Instant Adventure for the thrill of battle, on-tap. Waiting around for your guild before a raid or just have some time to kill? At the click of a button, your level 45-50 Ascended will be whisked away to Shimmersand or Stillmoor for action, experience, and loot. The conflict scales as people join or leave the group, so you could cleanse a den of cultists one minute and liberate an entire zone the next. Instant Adventure: Open-world action on demand!"
