The Future of Rift: A Q&A With Scott Hartsman
Managing Editor Bill Murphy sat in on a telephone press conference with Executive Producer of Trion's flagship title Rift, Scott Hartsman. An upcoming Producer's Letter, set to be hosted on the game's official forums, was the main topic of discussion as Bill and a conference call of his peers addressed with Scott some of Rift's plans moving forward.
There are all sorts of new additions to Rift coming: from new world PvP initiatives in the form of PvP Rifts, plus solo and duo content in the form of Chronicles of Telara Instances. There's even going to be a form of endgame character advancement so that you can keep growing and earning experience and character skills after level 50 (Alternative Advancement!). And there's just so much more. The overarching topic of the call was all about what's next for the game and the list is a long one. Scott and the rest of the crew at Trion have a lot of plans for Rift and they're quite aggressive and open in sharing them.
