Trion Worlds announced today it has signed a multi-year agreement with Ubisoft for retail distribution of Rift in, France, Benelux, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Nordics regions.
According to Trion’s CEO Lars Buttler, the partnership demonstrates “the potential Rift has to be a game-changer in the online gaming space”.
In Rift, players build their own class using the Ascended Soul system, go on quests, play around in PvP combat, and participate in epic raids. It’s a MMO after all.
Rift is expected to be released next year, and beta applications are currently being accepted.
