has announced the latest step in its plans for global domination, and it takes the form of a publishing agreement for the southeast Asian market. It was only a couple of weeks ago that RIFT
landed the biggest MMO deal ever for a western title in the Chinese market
, and now Trion's online fantasy brand will be available in Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand as well.
The company is partnering with Asiasoft
to make it happen, and CEO Lars Buttler
says it's another example of what sets his firm apart from the competition. "Trion has a global view when it comes to delivering premium games, and our initiatives to bring RIFT
to Asia through some of the industry's biggest collaborations sets Trion apart from other Western game developers."
