A couple of nights ago, TRION
The six-day Rift open beta event kicks off today at 6pm GMT with a bang… or rather, a tweet. When players login to Trion’s upcoming MMORPG this week, they’ll find new functionality that allows in-game updates to their Twitter feeds straight from the besieged world of Telara. Share screenshots, boast your latest achievement, or simply send an update to your friends – all from the in-game chat window.
Tweeting from Telara couldn’t be easier. After entering your Twitter login info in the settings menu, players can simply type “/tweet” into in-game chat and update their feed. Achievements are tweeted automatically by default, but the option can be switched off in the settings menu.
This is quite a cool addition and it’s certainly a good way to get word out about the game from while the Open Beta takes place this week. Will it trend on Twitter? We’ll have to wait and see.
