Trion World Announces MMO Action & RTS Games

Trion Worlds announces their new name to the world, after previously going by the moniker Trion World Network. They also reveal further details on Rift: Planes of Telara, announced as Heroes of Telara, and unveil plans for End of Nations, a new MMORTS game from Petroglyph, offering some End of Nations screenshots and opening both the Rift: Planes of Telara Website and the End of Nations Website, as well as the new Trion Worlds Website. They also reveal more about their collaboration with SyFy, though they are a bit more coy about this, calling their project for the science-fiction television network an action MMO title, and serving up some concept art from the untitled game. Here's more on the two newly announced games:

Trion has also pulled back the curtain on the world’s first premium massively multiplayer real-time strategy (MMORTS) game, End of Nations, which is being developed by Petroglyph Games, the creative minds behind the original Command and Conquer. End of Nations takes warfare to an unprecedented scale, bringing the real-time strategy genre into the online world of connected gaming. In End of Nations, players can choose to engage in solo combat or battle with -- and against -- thousands of other gamers across the gigantic battlefields that make up its persistent world. Gamers develop their own Commanders, build up their headquarters, and deploy a vast array of vehicles, weapons and technologies acquired through combat experience, crafting, and research. End of Nations will be bringing a new class of strategic warfare to PC gamers next year.

The company’s third and most groundbreaking title is currently under development at its San Diego studio, in conjunction with the premier television network SyFy. This action-focused MMO is based on a new intellectual property being developed by both companies, designed to reach a mass audience in a way never before possible. The franchise will debut as both a game and a television show simultaneously, with a shared universe of characters, alien races, organizations, environments, technologies, and more. In this revolutionary connected title, players' actions will influence the course of the show, and events occurring in the show will have consequences in the game. More news and information on this innovative, collaborative project will be coming from Trion and SyFy in the future.

Was thinking the opposite. End of Nations looks interesting. Rift looks WoW-ish due to the content. Hopefully they focus on the gameplay and make it unique. I could really use a new MMO.
