Rift PC Open beta announced
Rift™ Open Beta Event Scheduled to Start February 15th!!
On February 15th Trion will lift the veil on their upcoming MMORPG Rift™ with a six-day open beta event, giving all would-be Defiants and Guardians the opportunity to preview the epic world of Telara before the game launches worldwide on March 1st. Servers are scheduled to be open from 7:00 AM PST on Tuesday, February 15th to 7:00 AM PST on Monday, February 21st, giving users a taste of Telara, including two playable factions, the first 42 levels of play, three PvP warfronts, and several zones and dungeons to explore.
Sign up now at www.riftgame.com/betasignup for a guaranteed spot in the “Telara the Merciless” beta event.
So far the betas have been very stable, and this MMO world lets players play up to three classes at the same time with an option to swap in another 5-7 at the player's whim.
Players can open Rifts throughout the game world or close them as they see fit, leaving widespread carnage and destruction as monsters pour out into surrounding areas.
The Development team has a varied background in many MMO's and they have made some major improvements to the way this one is played.
Here's hoping everyone who wants to play gets a chance.

I was watching a new Rift video and it was what happened to me in beta 6:
I was being chased by angry mobs, I spotted a tear, I ran up and used my planar lure, a Life Rift opened, the monsters came pouring out and made a quick meal of my pursuers! In the ensuing carnage my character escaped without a scratch!

I just bought the game and so far I kind of like it more than WoW. Not much more but it just seems to have the skills set up better.
