Nokia has launched the website for their flagship RPG Rifts at www.rifts-promiseofpower.com (http://www.rifts-promiseofpower.com/). The most elaborate N-Gage game site since Pathway To Glory (http://www.pathwaytoglory.com/), it contains many tantalising glimpses at what's to come. The developers' blog indicates Rifts has just reached the beta stage so we should be seeing some more in-depth previews appearing soon.

Perhaps most tantalising though is what isn't revealed: there will be a brand new character class (to keep fans of the original pen & paper Rifts RPG happy) and "a variety of game modes for N-Gage Arena" all of which will be unveiled at E3 in May. It's interesting to note that, like Catan and Worms World Party, Rifts is a turn-based N-Gage game that has been delayed by about 6 months. Catan and Worms were both delayed so live Arena multiplayer could be added, and perhaps something similar is planned for Rifts alongside the already announced "postal chess"-style multiplayer mode.

Worms is due for release any day now, possibly they're holding back "something" for E3...

Could be, could be... a totally online Rifts would be quite lovely. But I think the "message based" multiplayer could be a surprise hit, it could be the gaming equivalent of text messaging (and we all know how addictive that has become, at least in Europe and Asia).
