'Rift: Planes of Telara' Kicks Off Second Beta Event

by Rainier on Dec. 7, 2010 @ 4:58 p.m. PST

Rift: Planes of Telara is an online game set in a world being torn apart by dimensional "rifts" that tear into the land of Telara, releasing powerful forces that threaten the very existence of the entire universe.

Rift is the complete and full-featured MMO experience. Adventure in the world of Telara as either a noble Guardian or technomagical Defiant and enter a dynamic fantasy world where eight primal forces battle for control in an ever-changing landscape. In Rift, players build their own class using the Ascended Soul system, embark on challenging quests, battle others in exhilarating Player vs. Player combat, and achieve new heights of power by tackling epic raids.

Rifts and other dynamic events can be triggered by players, scheduled by the development team, or even occur spontaneously. Dynamic events within the game can lead to a range of changes across the world, including everything from minor events to dramatic shifts in the game’s landscape and the opening of new areas. Players will connect with hundreds of thousands of other gamers to battle creatures overrunning the world, as well as each other.

Featuring the first 20 levels of play, Rift’ s second closed beta event “Guardians of the Vigil” is scheduled to start at 6.00pm GMT Friday, Dec. 17th and run through Monday, December 20th at 6.00pm GMT.

In “Guardians of the Vigil” players will be reborn as Ascended souls of the Vigil, prophesized to put an end to the tyrant Aedraxis and his plan to sacrifice the world to Regulos. Save the forest of Silverwood from the war between fiery minions of chaos and the corrupted followers of the elven prince Hylas. Venture into the Realm of the Fae to break the hold that Greenscale’s lieutenant Lord Twyl has over the ancient home of the elves.

“Guardians of the Vigil” will be localized for English, French and German speaking territories.

Interested fans can still sign up for the beta!
