Trion has held their Trion Party @ PAX Prime today (August 28th 2015) at the W Hotel in Seattle, WA from 7-10PM PDT. Players hung out with the various dev teams and received a whole bunch of awesome freebies. Various game announcements for Trion titles were also made.
Some of the Trion team that attended the party included Trion CEO Scott Hartsman, Director of Commuity Relations Linda “Brasse” Carlson, RIFT Senior Design Director Simon “Dead Simon” Ffinch and Community Manager Evan “Scapes” Berman.
- MMOReporter has a nice photo of Dead Simon et al holding a demo of RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds you can check out here.
- Lines for the party extended round the block even 30min prior to start with some dedicated fans arriving 2hrs earlier!
RIFT Game Announcements
During the party, Trion revealed some RIFT game announcements:
- New 20-man Raid is called “Mind of Madness“. (Thanks to Chickie@Laethys for the info!)
- Brasse mentioned that RIFT 3.4: Into the Wilds would come “end of September”, although the date is still subject to change. (Thanks to Samuraiko for the info!)
Not much announcements for RIFT. It seems test date announcements are probably going to be delayed until next week.
Atlas Reactor Announcement
Trion announced a new game hitting the company’s growing list of online titles:
It’s a new turn-based, multiplayer, team-tactics strategy game. Choose your moves, lock in your decisions within a few seconds and watch the battle unfold!
