The head start program for Trion Worlds' fantasy MMO Rifts launches today, and with more than one million registered accounts to date, things are bound to get a little crowded.
As of this writing there's only a half-hour before the land of Telara is officially opened up to early start customers, with countless players staring at the server selection screen, waiting for their choice of 31 launch servers to become active. I've got the game open myself, eyes focused on the Sunrest role-playing player-versus-player server, because I enjoy getting ganked in-character.
If you're not in the head start, you've got one week to figure out where and what you'll play before taking the plunge. And if you aren't playing you can head over to the Rift webpage to see what you'll be missing out on.
