Worlds announced today that RIFT™, the hotly anticipated massively
multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), and the publisher’s first
product offering, has launched. RIFT is now on sale at select North
American retail and digital outlets, and will be available in Australia on
Wednesday, March 2nd, pan-European countries on Thursday, March 3rd,

“RIFT offers the most exciting, most social, most
dynamic online gameplay today,” said Lars Buttler, CEO of Trion Worlds. “Our
amazing development team has created an incredibly polished and complete MMORPG
that carefully builds upon and then improves winning features that gamers love.
Those features are then topped off with unprecedented freedom of choice and
epic social events in an ever-evolving world of dynamic conflict.”
In RIFT, the world of Telara is under siege from six primal forces after the magical ward protecting the planet shatters.
Joining either the technomagical Defiant or divinely-appointed Guardians,
players assume the role of an Ascended hero brought back from the dead to fight
the planar invaders and save Telara. Featuring an innovative class-building
system, massive dynamic battles in an ever-changing world, and incredible
social gameplay, RIFT enters the online gaming arena as the new
gold-standard in MMORPGs.
