    RIFT (RPG MMO)

    Hey all, spida's back and it's time to flood AEF with some new MMO getting released or are in the making.
    So i'm going to start with RIFT.



    Mysterious rifts are tearing the world of Telara apart. A powerful magic explosion during the final days of the Shade War has left the veil between Telara and other planar dimensions fractured and torn.

    Treacherous and powerful, these rifts occur when another plane of reality intersects with the magical Ward protecting Telara. Rifts create doorways for planar invasion, destroying the lands and people of Telara, but they may also grant otherworldly power to those brave enough to seize it.

    Now no part of Telara is truly safe. Invasions can occur anywhere and at any time, and the danger to the world is growing. Two major factions have emerged to save the world of Telara from the rifts: the Guardian and the Defiant. Each faction works in different ways to preserve Telara's future, and both seek to undermine the other.

    While little is known about the exact nature of the rifts, Telaran scholars, priests, and historians strive to unlock the mysteries of these massive portals. It is believed that the rifts are being caused by direct attacks on the magical Ward surrounding Telara. Regulos, the dragon god of extinction, seeks to free his imprisoned minions of the Blood Storm trapped deep inside Telara. These attacks weaken the veil and cause planar disruptions that open the destructive rifts across the world.

    Often, rifts appear in the world as a tear in the fabric of reality. Powerful magic has been used to study these anomalies, and sometimes they have been opened inadvertently, resulting in great tragedy. But there is still much to learn from these destructive forces. Can riftic power be harnessed by sorcery? Can powerful beings enter the rifts to venture into the deadly planes beyond? How many planes really exist?

    With rifts, only one thing is certain — if they are not stopped, the world of Telara will surely end.



    Dynamic Layered World

    Every player experiences a different adventure in the living, breathing world of Telara. RIFT™ has all of the traditional quests and deep story arcs you expect from a fantasy MMO role-playing game, but there is unpredictability to life in Telara that guarantees even familiar terrain can offer new dangers and opportunities.

    Whether it’s a previously peaceful farm being ravaged by demons, a tranquil forest glen suddenly ripped apart by a violent rift, or merely an unassuming traveling merchant with astounding wares, spontaneous events are taking place all across Telara for you to discover and take part in.

    The ebb and flow of activity in Telara is always changing. Thousands of unexpected encounters are occurring at any moment, making every adventure unique — with more being added all the time. And just like in real life, you can revisit favorite haunts to see what's different, adding a novel sense of exploration to even well-trodden ground.



    RIFT™ provides many playable races to choose from. Each race has its own characteristic look, unique racial ability, and distinctive background story. Races also belong to one of two opposing factions, either Guardian or Defiant. Each race will offer players its own set of advantages and disadvantages during gameplay.

    got this for pre order tried the Beta and enjoyed it very well. Must say the three talent trees look good giving a mixture of skills and combos so you can have a choice of what path you want to go down. Looking forward to when it's released. Hope to see some AEFers play this

    Just finished this weekends beta of Rift and overall found it to be very enjoyable. It did start out a little slow but as my characters levels increased so to did the level of enjoyment. In the beginning this game felt very much like KnightOnline but gradually became its own game in its own right. It is a visual feast with lots of vibrant colour. Rarely will you have nothing to do and some thought process will be required to achieve some of the quests.
    I'm not a big fan of RPG's but I'm considering pre-ordering and subscribing to this one.

    Re: RIFT (RPG MMO)

    I got pretty bored of Rift quickly.

    The Rift mechanic is cool but uninteresting after a while.
    The player spell animations are terribly boring... its like you're firing fart clouds at enemies, and every spell so far as looked practically the same.
