Artists and designers have been let go for the MMORPG, Rift. Trion Worlds didn't actually announce the layoffs, it took a bit of investigating and legwork from Gamasutra, who found out from one of the departed that up to 40 developers from the Rift team have been let go, just before Christmas, directly after the release of the latest expansion.
Trion Worlds has released the first full expansion pack for their fantasy MMORPG RIFT. Storm Legion can be purchased through various retailers for $39.99.
You won't have to buy RIFT's upcoming expansion Storm Legion in order to try out the new content. Trion Worlds will be hosting an open beta for Storm starting on November 2nd.
Console gamers don't get many open-world games. There's Red Dead, Just Cause, GTA, Elder Scrolls and Saints Row but outside of the major players there's just a major lack of open-world titles. SyFy and Trion Worlds are hoping to buck trends by providing both Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers with the same kind of original gameplay and open-world PVP mechanics present in many PC titles.
RIFT developer Trion Worlds is having a bit of fun at Blizzard's expense. To "celebrate" the launch of World of Warcraft's expansion pack Mists of Pandaria, Trion is raising money to save pandas.
Trion Worlds' massive RTS PvP game, End of Nations will be nearing completion soon, enabling gamers to take part in some epic 50 player strategy-game throwdowns.

If there's one thing DayZ taught us it's that just because a game is in the state of being a buggy mess during alpha, it can still be loads of fun. The problem with a lot of other bigger budget titles is that they try to use a lot of tried and tired concepts to sell a game with little to no innovation, and that's sort of how Defiance looks in the latest video.
A new developer diary has surfaced for the upcoming Trion Worlds game, Defiance. The game is based on the TV show of the same name which is set to air on the Syfy channel during the 2013 season. While I have zero hope that the show will be any good, the game appears to contain a few noteworthy features, including open-world gameplay, class-free customization and lots of cool vehicles.
More than two hundred beta keys are up and at e'm, and that means that anyone willing to give Trion World's MMO strategy game a test run while it's still being worked on and the kinks are being ironed out can grab a key and hop into the game before anyone else.
Rift misses its former players desperately, which is why anyone with a character leveled above 20 can now log back in for free through this Sunday evening and experience all of the new content the game has to offer, including the three-faction PvP Conquest mode, four new zones of Instant Adventure, the new mentoring system and Primeval Feast raid.
