Rift: Planes of Telara: Death Rifts: A Rot Upon the Land

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelMMORPG.COM Staff Posts: 21,722 Epic

Death rifts are the subject of a new lore article from the Rift: Planes of Telara development team. Death rifts are gateways to the planes of doom where the spectres, mummies and lichs wander hopelessly. Find out more about these blighted planes and the dangers that await the unwary.

The Plane of Death is an endless, flat expanse of dust and bleached bone. Shadowy tendrils slither across the horizon, while vast obsidian spikes tear from the ground to claw at skies of purple and gray. The few clouds are ragged and pale, and the occasional flash of lightning sets everything into stark relief.

Things rot under pools of black oil, ready to yank prey down to a gruesome end, and mummies wait in elaborate tombs that were not built by hand, but grew from the land like cysts.

Read the entire Death Rift lore article, check out some never-before-seen screens and a new fly through video.

    Wow.  I'm very impressed by what they are doing, and how they are using the Rifts as part of the dynamic content system.   Not only does it look great, it looks like a lot of fun to play. :)

    Everyone might want to slow the praise until more is known. It has a great background story, but will it have anything more to offer than other games out now or being developed. I like the ideas for dynamic content with random rifts opening all over (or GW2's version of having events happening out in the world to find w/o having to run back and forth to a NPC), but will these be really dynamic and random/unique content, or will it just be another way to guide the player to the same old quest/content. If a Rift opens and you have to fight a horde of mobs, or enter it and hunt down small groups of mobs, isn't that the same as following a quest to get to mobs/goal or running around fighting random mobs in the world. Hopefully there is more to it.

    I enjoyed that article, well written and very interesting. I'm so pelased to see a lot of information around the major sites on this game - had been followign anotehr game and that's gone so dead quiet it's probably losing interest.

    So excited for Rift.

    All hail the Pixel, for it is glorious Orange!

    I love playing with dead things! Now give me a Diablo-style Necromancer class and I'm good to go.

    Thats quite a write up, The beginging part is especially good.  So eerie.  While this post dosnt give me much of an idea what its going to actually be like Im intrigued none the less.  I was wondering when a rift post was going to be made after everyone had mentioned it in alot of the sw:tor threads.

    have yet to read them say more than...we throw instances at you, doesnt get me excited at all.  guess depends how engaging the game over all feels, but so far feel like this is glorifying the part of MMOs I dislike, instance grinding for the uber rare drops.

    The story line seems vary ambitious. I just hope the game mechanics can live up to it.
