RIFT @ PAX 2012 – Don’t miss a beat!

Posted by on 28 August 2012

We can’t believe it’s been a year already, but PAX is back and we’re there bigger than ever! In typical Trion fashion we’re pulling out all the stops – showcasing all four AAA MMO’s we have in development, there’s a lot to look forward to!

Catch the latest news from RIFT, End of Nations, DEFIANCE, and Warface – whether you’re across the world or standing in our booth you’ll be able to watch the action LIVE as we broadcast to TwitchTV for the first time.

Starting Friday, August 31 thru Sunday, September 2nd tune into our live stream channel at Twitch.TV/TrionWorlds from 10:30AM to 5:30PM Pacific (5:30PM – 12:30AM GMT) for interviews, demos, and shenanigans all weekend long.


Attending the Show?

 Don’t leave PAX without a visit to our booth! Not only are we giving out the in-game item “Helm of the Demon Lord” but you can score a bacon wrapped skin for your war machines in End of Nations. Of course, we also have t-shirts and other swag to give out as well so drop by and say hi – for those of you watching from home, don’t think we won’t give you a chance to get in on the loot too!

We’re also throwing a party Friday night – we can’t post the information publicly (people love crashing PAX parties!) but stop by our booth and talk to a member of our team to get an invite. It promises to be an epic night full of food, drinks & fun.

Not able to make it to PAX on Friday but going to be in town? If you’re looking to party just shoot an email to, we’ll be sure to add your name to the list and send you information about the party on Friday morning.

Finding us on the show floor is easy – from the main entrance just hang a right, we’re in booths 914 and 922, it will be hard to miss us!


See you there,

The RIFT Team

Teeming with planar foes the blight of the Blood Storm has begun to reshape the very ground of Telara!
