Sure, anyone who has read anything about RIFT is aware that one of the big bad guys in the game is (surprise) the invasion force of monsters that like to pop out of rifts wherever the rifts touch down. Along the way you also get to destroy lots of other bad guys, such as the ones who reside in the...

Just a few weeks ago, I was invited to attend Trion Worlds' Gamer's Day in San Francisco to get some hands-on time with a couple of the company's upcoming titles, including Rift: Planes of Telara.
