I oh-so-casually strolled in to the Trion Worlds booth with absolutely no expectations. I had heard of the company thanks to the impressive announcement of Telara at E3 2009, but never followed up on the fantasy MMORPG. What a difference a year makes.
The game re-announced a few weeks ago as Rift: Planes of Telara, a subscription based MMORPG. The announcement came complete with a kicking new trailer, one that caught the eyes of the MMOcast. The above interview showcases the stellar graphics, touches upon the deep backstory and of course, the titular rift game mechanic.
Why yes, I did feel like a gnome standing (on my tippy-toes) next to Nick.
