Redwood Shores, Calif.- August 7, 2012 – Trion Worlds, the leading publisher and developer of premium online games, has announced a stellar line-up for this year’s gamescom, which is open to the public in Cologne, Germany, between August 16 and 19. Trion’s showcase will include the consumer debut of Rift™: Storm Legion, first look at End of Nations™ campaign gameplay, PvP combat in Defiance, and all new content for the Crytek developed free-to-play FPS, Warface®.
As its launch approaches, award winning free-to-play online military strategy game End of Nations, will be playable on 24 PCs in Hall 8 of the Koelnmesse. Attendees can experience new PvP maps, and developers will be on hand to provide a fascinating insight into the project.
On the same stand in Hall 8, Rift will be hands-on for gamescom visitors with the newest updates to the award-winning MMORPG, including the upcoming expansion Storm Legion. Rift creators will lift the lid on the expansion’s development, highlighting some amazing new features like Dimensions, a massive colossus battle, and sneak peek at one of the expansion’s new dungeons.
Meanwhile, Defiance – a multi-platform massive online shooter at the center of a revolutionary single universe event that will see the first ever live crossovers between television and gaming – will be hands-on for gamescom visitors over the age of 18. Located inside a large dedicated booth in Hall 6, Defiance will be showcasing previously unseen PvP gameplay.
Fresh from announcing a Western World co-publishing deal, Trion and celebrated German developers Crytek will be bringing AAA free-to-play online shooter Warface, already a massive hit in Russia, to gamescom. Housed in a stunning Chinook helicopter themed arena, players over the age of 18 will get the chance to engage in frantic Warface PvE and PvP gunplay.
