To me, half the appeal of any game (but mmos in particular) is the opportunity to explore the fictional worlds they're set in. I've always loved the feeling of entering a new zone and taking in all the sights and atmosphere. from what I've seen so far, Rift's zones look like they'll be excellent....very picturesque and well-designed. In particular, I'm looking forward to creeping around Gloamwood, as I've always enjoyed gloomy/horror themed zones.

So, beta testers, what are your impressions of Rift's environments thus far, and what do you look farward to seeing in the future?

I like the environment in MMO's as well, but I need the freedom to exlpore that landscape. There is nothing I dislike more than to be guided down a path to my next destination. I want to be able to climb a mountain, no matter if there is an objective up there or not, or jump off a cliff, whether it be the death of my character or not, I just want that freedom.

Freedom is guaranteed, simply because this is a MMO, but because of the games random invasions I'm sure we'l see the entire world and not just end up queing from a city... (cough cough WOW)

One of the things that makes the game so appealing to me is the fact that the environments won't be completely static, and rift events can occur anywhere. That alone will contribute a great deal to making the game world feel real and immersive.

Yup I agree with ya.. I think the Rifts are going to add an amazing dynamic to the game and the landscape.

I have yet to see the game for myself personally, but from what I have seen in clips the game looks amazing visually. I cannot wait to explore it myself. :)

i always spend plenty of time running around in the wildeness in all MMOs. theres usualyl alot of really cool stuff that you pass voer when leveling through a zone. sometimes its fun to explore, or just /walk around, admiring animations, textures, your own avatar, your cool sword or shiny armour or whathave you. in Rift, its exciting that we can actually experience meaningful content while doing this. the game has so many neat ideas, and retains old and good ones . . . lets jsut hope they dont ***** up as so many of their peers have xD

Personally I can not wait to see the manner in which the mobs from invasions react with the changes in environment as they pass from area to area, not to mention their interactions with npcs such as towns or quest/trade hubs.

One of the dev videos has already said that rift invasions from separate planes will start fighting each other on sight. I think it'd be pretty awesome to be wandering around looking for quest mobs, then climb a hill to see a massive legion of undead and fire elementals duking it out in the valley below.
