Trion World Network Now Trion Worlds; Three Games Revealed

Posted Apr 26, 2010 by Michael Bitton

Trion World Network Now Trion Worlds; Three Games Revealed

Trion Worlds, formerly Trion World Network, revealed their full lineup of MMO projects at a press event in San Fransisco last week.

Two of the three projects will be familiar to most, with the first being Rift: Planes of Telara. Along with the official company name change, Trion's Heroes of Telara is now known as Rift: Planes of Telara. Rift is a befitting name for the title, as the MMO is set in a world that is being torn apart by dimensional "rifts." The project's claim to fame is the use of dynamic events that can be triggered by players and developers alike to change the game world on a potentially massive scale. Rift's dynamic events "can lead to a range of changes across the world, including everything from minor events to dramatic shifts in the game’s landscape and the opening of new areas." Rift: Planes of Telara is scheduled for a 2011 launch.

Trion Worlds has also announced the development of End of Nations, a new MMORTS which is being developed by Petroglyph Games, who are currently also at work on True Games' action-strategy MMORPG, Mytheon.  Scheduled for a 2011 release, End of Nations allows players to do solo combat or participate in large scale conflicts with thousands of other players in a persistent game world. In End of Nations, players develop their Commander and headquarters and will have access to numerous vehicles, weapons, and technology to do battle with.

Trion Worlds has also re-announced their collaboration with the SyFy Network to develop an action-focused MMO set in the world of a new sci-fi IP. The game is also being developed alongside a new TV series set in the same universe that will launch simultaneously with the MMO. The still unnamed project stand-out feature is the fact that events that unfold within the game world will affect the events playing out in the show and vice-versa.

Visit the official Trion Worlds website for more information.
