To all wishing to break the unforgiving World of Warcraft curse that temporarily transmutes you into a bumbling zombie, transfixed to a computer screen in a vegetative state of gaming-delirium, we have some news for you. While we’d consider anything to be a healthy alternative to WoW (even huffing glue), Trion Worlds is poised to give fantasy MMORPG fans a breath of fresh air with their new title, Rift. While some of you may want to wait the years it will undoubtedly take for Blizzard to finish their mysterious Titan project, Rift promises a next-gen MMO experience this spring, complete with a fully dynamic world.
For those of you with high hopes, Trion Worlds is offering two pre-order editions that grant you early beta access, special pets, some nifty items and more. Rift will be ready for your greasy hands on March 1 for you lucky North Americans, and March 4 for you slightly less lucky Europeans.
