Trion Worlds yesterday launched two new programs designed to give you a free taste of the immensely popular fantasy MMORPG.
The RIFT 7-day Free Trial lets players experience the besieged world of Telara for a full week at no cost, and the Ascend-a-Friend program rewards current subscribers who find recruits for the Guardian and Defiant ranks. The new initiatives coincide with the debut of RIFT 1.2, the latest and most extensive game update so far, adding several features including Facebook integration, new 10-person raid content, and three new dynamic zone events.
“Since launching just over two months ago, RIFT has dramatically disrupted the online gaming landscape, giving players the most massive, dynamic, and engaging MMO experience currently available,” said Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer, RIFT. “With the Free Trial and Ascend-a-Friend programs, we’re opening the floodgates, inviting all into this amazing world to experience what gamers around the world already know – that Telara is the new destination for serious MMO players.”
By signing up at http://www.RIFTgame.com/freetrial, players can quest, PvP, and battle back planar invasions free for a full week. Free Trial players can upgrade to the full game anytime, taking their trail characters with them.
With the Ascend-a-Friend program, current RIFT players can give an unlimited number of 7-day passes to their friends. If a recruit purchases the game, the recruiter will receive one or more of the following rewards: Courage, a fiercely loyal and utterly adorable canine companion for one friend, the Trailblazer Hat for two, and for three you’ll receive the Swift Ember Steed mount, a terrifying equine wreathed in flame. Additionally, Ascended friends’ characters will be automatically added to the player’s Friends List, and both will gain the ability to summon each other once every 30 minutes.
Riftis quickly becoming a competitor to World of Warcraft and now is a great time to try it out for yourself. Adventure in the world of Telara as either a noble Guardian or technomagical Defiant and enter a dynamic fantasy world where 8 primal forces battle for control in an ever-changing landscape. Build your own class using the Ascended Soul system, embark on epic conflicts that bring you into the story, battle others in exhilarating Player vs. Player combat, achieve new heights of power by tackling epic raids, and so much more.
