I’ve had my eyes on Trion World‘s Rift: Planes of Telara since it was first unveiled a year ago at E3 as Heroes of Telara. Many shrugged it off as another cookie-cutter “WoW clone,” but I saw some promise in it. Now, a year later, the more I read and see about it, the more I think Rift could really end up being a phenomenal game. The combination of the dynamic world events and robust class(souls) mixing system seem really interesting. The amount of polish the game looks to have, when it’s only in an internal alpha stage, gives me very high hopes and honestly has me impressed by Trion and their first MMO development project.
