Trion inks Southeast Asia deal for Rift

Six more Asian regions for growing MMO

Trion's MMO Rift is heading to six locations in Southeast Asia thanks to a new deal with game operator Asiasoft.

Asiasoft will operate and distribute Rift in Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand. Previous Trion deals have set the game up for release in Korea with CJ E&M Games and China through Shanda Games.

"Trion has a global view when it comes to delivering premium games, and our initiatives to bring Rift to Asia through some of the industry's biggest collaborations sets Trion apart from other Western game developers,'' offered Lars Buttler, CEO of Trion Worlds.

"Asiasoft, with its deep reach into Southeast Asian countries, is an ideal partner to realise our goal of bringing original connected experiences like Rift to gamers everywhere."
