TRION WORLDS AND GAMONSTER TEAM UP TO BRING RIFT™ TO TAIWAN

REDWOOD SHORES, CA – Feb. 24, 2012 – Trion Worlds, the leading publisher and developer of premium games for the connected era, has entered into an exclusive agreement with Gamonster to release  Rift™ in Taiwan. The agreement will grant Gamonster an exclusive license for  Rift  localized in Chinese/Mandarin for the Taiwan market.

The partnership appoints Gamonster to exclusively distribute and resell the localized version of  Rift, and be responsible for all the publishing business in the region, including server hosting, marketing, PR, distribution, customer service, and community management.

The exclusive deal with Gamonster follows recent partnership announcements with Shanda Games to bring  Rift  to mainland China, and with Asiasoft to bring the award-winning game to six territories in Southeast Asia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand.

The growth of Trion’s expansion into Asian markets follows the continued success of  Rift  since launching last March. The company saw more than a million accounts activated in just four months and North American and European revenues of more than $100 million. The unprecedented demand for the game in global markets shows gamers everywhere are embracing original, high-quality new properties and rich, dynamic game experiences built from the ground up for the new generation of online gaming.
