A new MMO is coming! It feels like its raining MMO's these days, but they're all under development! ...and so is "Rift". However, there are some nifty things to show even now.The official description:
Join legions of adventurers in Rift, a new fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) set in a world being torn apart.
Rifts violently rip into reality across the land and release powerful forces that threaten the very existence of Telara. Each breach brings with it new characters, events, and treasures, while the world itself changes dynamically around you.
Play with your friends across vast, lavishly detailed environments, or go head-to-head in challenging Player versus Player (PvP) combat as you battle to uncover the secrets of the planes. Build and advance your character using an innovative new class system with limitless possibilities.
The rifts have divided the people and endanger the world. Whether you fight to seal the rifts forever, or harness their power for your own, epic adventures lie ahead for those willing to fight for the future of Telara.
Well, to my own observations, this seems like what you'd expect of a classic MMO. There are two important differences, though:
- - This is big budget. They supposedly managed to garner massive support for their title and are working with a lot of funding.
- - The content in the game is supposedly very dynamic. The world will change, areas will transform etc.
- - They claim they are focusing a lot on polish. Perhaps we don't have to suffer through another half-assed launch again?
