Rift's fifth beta event closed this past Saturday with more players than ever participating, including MMORPG.com's Bill Murphy. Bill has a terrific report on what he discovered in Beta Event 5 that you won't want to miss. Be sure to leave us your impressions in the comments below.
The opening area is actually extremely well done, and I feel though it may be damning praise, gave me the same feeling Warhammer Online did when it launched. That is to say that before the curtain came crashing down on WAR, it was undeniable that its early game was rock-solid and a whole lot of fun. It really felt like a war was raging. In Rift, I really felt like I stumbled into the end of a world, the screen was shaking, the atmosphere is ripe with havoc, and it all sets the tone very well. The folks at Trion should be given an A+ on presentation, that’s for sure.
