Rifts: Promise of Power is a licensed Rifts video game, released on September 10, 2005 for the Nokia N-Gage. It is the first, and currently only, adaptation of the Rifts role-playing game franchise to a video game. However, due to the failure of the N-Gage platform in the North American market, this game is very difficult to find.
The character classes provided in Promise of Power provide a broad but shallow sampling from the hundreds of classes in the books. Additionally, the creators have added 3 proto-classes that you player chooses from when the begin the game. Mercenary, Psionic and Magic User. Upon reaching level 4, the character chooses a specialisation such as Burster, Cyborg, Ley Line Walker etc. Some of these classes are only available from one proto-class, and some are available from multiple. One Character Class designed for the game, the Elemental Fusionist, was adapted into the Role-playing game in the Rifts' Ultimate Edition.
