Rift: Starfall is a minecraft mod that is currently in alpha testing. It will be an expansion to the game played by millions of people worldwide. I am excited to share this exciting news with you, as this is one of the few MMORPGs (with the exception of Lord of the Rings Online) that is in production now, and one that could very well end up being one of the biggest MMORPGs of all time. Not only is it in alpha testing, but it will be out sometime within the next two years.
If you don’t know what Rift is, it is a 3rd person shooter video game that is played on a massive virtual world. The game is set thousands of years in the future, during the period known as the Aeon of Strife. This is a golden opportunity for creative gamers, who want to create 1.16.5 a living paradise on earth. The rich graphics, the use of advanced technology, and the exciting game play have made this game one of the most in demand online games today. One only needs to look at the success of Minecraft, to see how big this opportunity is right now.
In Rift: Starfall, we are going to feature an entirely new resource called Fabric. Fabric is basically the fuel used to power your character’s ships. You can research all three types of materials in the Overlay and decide which is best for your character. Each resource has different uses, so there will certainly be something for every player. Let’s take a closer look at the different types of materials in Rift:
Resources are used to power your character’s ships and are also carried around the map. For example, you can construct a Light Overlay to boost the defense of your capital ship, or a Dark Overlay to hide your ships from other players. Once constructed, they will remain active on the map and will not spawn until your current session is complete. All Overlays are static, so they cannot be moved or deleted.
Another great thing about Rift is that we will be able to get more than just two resource items. As we progress through the levels, we will unlock another crafting resource, allowing us to create more complex items, such as weapons or armor. These crafted items will be more powerful when compared to resources you gather from the map. In addition, crafting is an interactive part of the game, where your characters are evaluated during crafting to determine if they are doing it correctly.
For players who like to PvP, combat will be another aspect of Rift that interests you. The idea of PvP involves capturing points through capturing creatures, and defending your point against waves of enemy players. This will require both your engineering skills and your coordination with your fellow Rift players. The overlying story line for Rift, combined with these exciting gameplay components, make this game very intriguing and fun to play.
