Rift dev announces voxely sandboxer Trove

Voxel-y sandbox worlds with digging and building and crafting are all the rage nowadays, and Trion Worlds has one of its own too. The Rift and Defiance developer last week announced its free-to-play Trove, which is a fair bit like all those other sandbox games, but with the novel idea of carrying your home base over from procedural world to procedural world.

End of Nations' MOBA switch because MMO aspects 'underdeveloped'

End of Nations executive producer Scot Lane said the move to MOBA was relatively easy because it was already a combat intensive game, but that the MMO aspects were "underdeveloped and didn't resonate well" with fans when Trion took the game over from former developer Petroglyph. But, "the combat felt like it was on a trajectory to be compelling and fun."

Rift has now gone free-to-play

We said before that Trion Worlds planned to turn its MMORPG Rift free-to-play on this day but, you know, what sort of company expects people to remember things like that in the excitement of E3? But it has, and everyone can now play it as much as they please without paying a penny.

Rift going free-to-play on June 12

By today's standards, an MMORPG running for over two years before going free-to-play has been pretty successful with the subscription model. So well done, Rift. Developer Trion Worlds today announced that it will switch the MMO to F2P on June 12, a respectable 25 months after launching. It'll do the usual microtransaction stuff, of course.

Defiance review: MMO meets sandbox

If you're in the mood for a free-flowing shooter with the novelty of being surrounded by dozens of other players, then Defiance is a decent pick, but if you're the type of gamer who craves either a good story or an active player community then this one is not for you.
