Rift: Planes of Telara

RIFT: PLANES OF TELARA

Rift is developed by Trion Games and will be released March 1st and yes it is pay to play.

The thing with Rift is that it's not doing anything groundbreaking, it's enhancing alot while also adding new stuff to the table. The beta has been going on since Tuesday and I had a great time. The things that are unique with it is it's class system and rift system.

I'll start by explaining the class system, you choose one of four archetypes; Warrior, Cleric, Mage or Rouge, but it doesn't end there. You're then given the choice between 8 sub-classes where you can choose 3. But don't worry you can have up to 4 different combinations so you're choice of subclasses isn't permanent.Then you can mix together different classes to get a good hybrid, I was worrying about how well this would work but they handled it really good.

Also the game isn't called rift for no reason, at random times rifts opens around the map spawning elite mobs. They are really fun because it's easy to join a public group and everyone fights together. Like once a day a giant invasion happens where rifts opens up everywhere and you can't run anywhere, you have to fight to free the land. It feels great and when the invasion is nearly finished everyone, like 200 people go towards the last boss and tries to kill him, that was mighty.

Another thing I liked was the crafting system, it's nothing special but it feels so comfortable and the gear you craft is actually useful even at a low level.

I played the first instance also and it was great, it felt really good and it had lots of different things we had to do in there. Like in one part we had to run from light to light to defend of ghosts and on another place we had to pull ghosts into a light trap.

So to finish it of, it's mostly not something you haven't seen before but it feels much better. Even though it was in beta I didn't encounter any problems except for like 2 missing tooltips and the servers weren't having problems even once. I say if you have money it's definetly worth playing, if not keep your eyes out for private servers because it's a great game! Wink

No, but since GW2 is not coming up in the near future it's good to have something to waste your time on!

well it's almsot guaranteed (or however you spell it) that it will be out this year. As the pre orders are at 2 november. Pre - orders can come as early as they want to. but if they come after 2 november it is against some shitty advertising law. (methinks) so when will rift be out?

Well it's very optimized so if you lower your settings you shouldn't encounter lag! Smile
