NYCC '10: Trion Worlds Panel Report

NYCC '10: Trion Worlds Panel Report - Rift -

Trion Worlds featured a panel on their upcoming games Rift: Planes of Telara and End of Nations at this year's New York ComicCon and's Drew Wood was on hand to get all the details.

The good people at Trion and Rick Sanchez were kind enough to come out to New York Comic Con for us and hit us up with a panel on their upcoming, highly-anticipated game, Rift: Planes of Telara, and a brief taste (if too little) of End of Nations, their as of yet no-release-date-provided MMORTS.  Rick focused predominantly on Rift, and you can't blame him, as all of the enthusiasm in the room seemed to be for the forthcoming fantasy MMORPG. 

Rick equated Rift right away to its brethren of the genre (WoW, Everquest) telling us that at its heart, Rift is an achievement-based MMO and a title that is intended to appeal to fans of its predecessors.  He quickly listed off a grocery list of gameplay features, from crafting to guild raids, guild achievements, PvP, auctions, factions and Guild Quests, and promised an abundance of content that will keep you playing well until an expansion comes along.  He then went on to claim that any MMO elements you've ever wanted in a game are going to be present in Rift: “Pick your little slice of MMO heaven and we're going to give it to you”.
