Get Rift For Free
Every game and developer announced tons of interesting events and features for Thanks Giving and Black Friday, but none of them as shocking as the announcement from Rift developers Trion.
For a very limited time, players can buy Rift for nothing. I guess it’s not really buying if it’s free but I wouldn’t argue about it. Trion had already dropped the price to a mere $4.99 previously, but apparently that wasn’t enough to appeal to the amount of players they were hoping for, as a result the game is now available for free. The latest expansion, Ashed of History, is still a premium expansion, costing players $10.00.
This has pretty much confirmed that Rift is heading down the free to play route, game hasn’t been out 2 years yet and they’re already having to throw the game at players to get them interested.
