Trion Worlds, developer and publisher of an amassed library of online games, have recently announced their new and upcoming online service, Glyph. This digital gaming platform, intended for competition with services such as Steam, will feature many of Trion's own titles, as well as hand-selected games from various developers. Best yet, buyers will not have to play around DRM utilities that restrict gamers.
Glyph allows players to purchase and download the full Trion Worlds library, including free-to-play titles such as Trove and RIFT, as well as plenty of games from other development teams. Scott Hartsman, CEO of Trion Worlds, recently discussed how he imagines this will influence online gaming.
“In the past three years, we’ve reached more than 10 million gamers, supported 25 million transactions, and more than 50 million downloads have happened across our network. This shows that we’ve got an audience of dedicated gamers along with the technology and tools to meet their appetites. We’re interested in making it easier for our players to discover games and developers we want to support, while boosting visibility for those developers in the increasingly crowded world of PC digital gaming.”
Coming soon, players will be able to access their single-player library offline with the freedom that common DRM restrictions would not allow. No word was given regarding the digital platform's release date, but you can look forward to unrestricted gaming with Glyph sometime in the near future.
