Six-day event begins today, sign up at
The six-day Rift open beta event kicks off today at 10am PST with a bang or rather, a tweet. When players login to Trions upcoming MMORPG this week, theyll find new functionality that allows in-game updates to their Twitter feeds straight from the besieged world of Telara. Share screenshots, boast your latest achievement, or simply send an update to your friends - all from the in-game chat window.
Tweeting from Telara couldnt be easier. After entering your Twitter login info in the settings menu, players can simply type /tweet into in-game chat and update their feed. Achievements are tweeted automatically by default, but the option can be switched off in the settings menu.
The new functionality coincides with the open beta event scheduled to run February 15-21, which anyone can participate in by signing up for an account at http://www.riftgame.com/betasignup.
Dont forget to follow Rift on Twitter at http://twitter.com/Riftgame.
Adventure in the world of Telara as either a noble Guardian or technomagical Defiant and enter a dynamic fantasy where 8 primal forces battle for control in an ever-changing landscape. Build your own class using the Ascended Soul system, embark on epic conflicts that bring you into the story, battle others in exhilarating Player vs. Player combat, achieve new heights of power by tackling epic raids, and so much more.
