Still looking good. This could end up being a sleeper hit behind GW2 and SW:TOR.

Agreed,this game looks very promising.All that's missing is a gameplay video and more info on crafting.

After reading this article, and looking through the beautiful screens, I have to say I totally agree.

I didn't know there would be PvP Lakes, which is one of my favorite concepts of any game. (Honestly, WAR is one of my favorite games for this very reason. I know, shun me if you will...) But, I love Open PvP, I love crafting, and I've never really cared either way about special roleplay rules. So, this is looking right up my alley.

One question, though. What about the lawsuit with Palladium? Will that change the concept of this game, or will it simply change the name of the game?

It's very, very difficult to sue over concepts or plots (as opposed to copyrighted words or images), even when the similarities are pronounced. All Trion has to do is show all the other stories based on dimensions colliding together.

The more I learn about this game the more I like it. I am keeping my eye on this one.

This game is sounding increasingly promising. I like the fact that no place is ever truly safe and that crafters can accidentally trigger rifts if they botch something. It's a little disappointing that there won't be any roleplay systems, but how many games really have those? At least, in any major way?

So the lawsuit battle is over or ongoing?

No, lawsuit not resolved yet, although there have been a few back and forth motions I think. I doubt whatever happens will impact any of us here, though.

Good coverage by the Massively people - much better than some bits I saw at other sites recently. :)

Damnit so this is a pvp game? I was hoping for a pve, I hate pvp! :(

Getting really sick of that, myself. More and more games are headed that way, which is making absolutely no sense. I'm in several games that have both pve and pvp servers, and yet the pve servers are far more numerous and full while the pvp ones are mostly empty. Yet devs keep thinking we want *more* pvp. :/

Uh, didn't you guys read the article carefully? They said there are zones that have open PvP, but you can avoid them all you want. You're not force to PvP.

I have to disagree with VA on all the games I've played the PvP servers are the hugely popular ones, but like mentioned by Vlo they said they would be avoidable.

Also I have it in my head that I read somewhere that this is a f2p game, please tell me it's not so.

For Odd:

From the FAQ:

Will I have to buy a subscription to play Rift: Planes of Telara?

Yes, you will need to buy a monthly subscription to play Rift: Planes of Telara. However, the exact price is still being determined and will be announced much closer to game’s launch.
