Promising MMO opens doors

A new open beta for promising PC MMO Rift will begin on February 15, developer Trion has confirmed.

The Telara the Merciless event will last for six days.


Trion says the trial will "give all would-be Defiants and Guardians the opportunity to preview the epic world of Telara before the game launches worldwide on March 1st".

The beta will feature two playable factions, the first 42 levels of play, three PvP warfronts, and several zones and dungeons to explore.
