Trion Worlds’ Rift massively multiplayer online game is barely out the door, having shipped in March.

For fans of this genre, Trion is promising massive battles where online players can team up by the dozens in intense combat sessions. If the game is a success, Trion could find itself in the rare position of being able to charge a monthly subscription for a perpetual game. This kind of game is extremely expensive to produce, and Trion has raised more than $100 million to builds multiple MMOs at the same time. This one is being built for Trion by Las Vegas-based Petroglyph Studios. I recently got a chance to see it up close and play for an entire round of combat.
