If you've never heard of Trion World Network, don't be all that surprised – they haven't even released their debut game, Heroes of Telara. However, the developer and publisher today announced that the upcoming MMORPG will be showcased at their first E3 appearance later this year. Stepping into territory firmly dominated by World of Warcraft – though that rule has been challenged in the past (we're looking at you, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning and Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures) – Heroes of Telara is a fantasy game that challenges players to level-up in a world of both recurring and sudden events. For more information on Heroes of Telara and Trion World Network, be sure to check out the official press release below:
