Beijing, China (178) - One of the biggest parts of China Joy is that these face-to-face conversations with those big bosses from game realm. Today we're happy to have Lars Buttler, the head of TrionWorlds with us, to talk about the how RIFT's Chinese localization works, and how this fantasy MMO competes with WOW in China.
In the recent China Joy CGDC, Lars Buttler says that he's totally confident in RIFT's Chinese market performance. When comparing with WOW, whose next expansion with massive Chinese elements will be hitting our market in Sep, Buttler says RIFT's various random events can make the game more special and attractive than Mist of Pandaria. He insists that there will also be many localized contents in RIFT Chinese version, such as mounts with Chinese style and Chinese festivals.
By the way, RIFT's first Chinese beta will be kicking off this Oct. Both TrionWorlds and Shanda Game (RIFT's Chinese agency) will be fully-prepared for the game's first Chinese show.
