With Rift playable in North America and Europe, now those Korean players who are itching to take a peek at the game would have the chance to experience it. Trion Worlds announced today it has signed a multi-year agreement with Korean developer and publisher CJ E&M Games to exclusively publish a localized version of Rift in Korean.
"We take the Korean market very seriously as it is driven by innovation and growth in the online gaming space," said Lars Buttler, CEO, Trion Worlds. "By working with CJ E&M we are able to bring deep, immersive online gaming experiences to the east, and continue delivering quality games to gamers worldwide."
"We are very happy to introduce the premium MMO Rift to Korean gamers, as it delivers a truly dynamic experience which I am personally enjoying very much, and I am confident Korean gamers will also enjoy this great title," said Whon Namkoong, Head of Games Business, CJ E&M.
The agreement comes hot on the heels of NPD's March Report which lists Rift as the month's top-selling PC game at retail in North America. While digital sales have significantly outpaced retail sales, the report details a strong retail performance for Trion's first premium online title.
Meanwhile rumors said Rift will also be published in China but nothing has been confirmed yet.
