You've actually heard of Rift: Planes of Telara before, it was just called of-telara-shows-some-early-promise-serverside-135004.phtml">Heroes of Telara at the time. The game, which is a fantasy MMO, is being developed by Trion Worlds. They're taking a different approach to the whole MMO thing by having all the game's content and updates handled on servers (cloud computing) while graphics and sound are handled by the player's equipment.

This means that the game world can be updated with minor or large details or events at any time without everyone having to get an update. That plays right into the rift part of the name of the game. Trion has explained that the world of Telara is being torn apart by rifts that cause changes to the world from entire areas being unlocked to unique instances of monsters attacking.

I'm not an MMO player, but having a world that can change easily on the fly sounds awesome. We'll just have to wait and see until 2011 when the game is scheduled to land on PC.

At $10, yeah, Guild Wars 2 is worth playing

As a casual MMO player, I've always liked the Guild Wars series -- no monthly subscription fits my lifestyle, you know? I don't have to feel guilty about wasting money by not playing "enough," whatever that is. If you're of a...more

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.5)

Final Fantasy XIV has come a long way. Although there wasn't any real endgame content to speak of when A Realm Reborn launched in its 2.0 incarnation, Square Enix worked hard to deliver in 2.1, and has continued to deliv...more

Surprise! Elder Scrolls Online is dropping the fee for existing subscribers, console version dated

When I reviewed The Elder Scrolls Online back at launch I thought it had potential, but not enough to keep people paying for subscription time. Plenty of MMOs have enjoyed a subscription-based model, and games like ...more
