Trion Worlds Massively Multiplayer title Rift has been, much to my surprise, staying relatively strong and staying true to its monthly fee model. Well all of that is about to change because today Trion has announced that on June 12 Rift will finally be walking the Free to Play plank.
I played Rift during its Beta phase and about six months into its lifespan before finally quitting because of its monthly payments. The game itself is a pretty impressive MMO, being extremely polished and taking some risks right out of the gate. Still to this day it has only expanded and grown in quality with my only real gripe with it being the generic quests and the very stiff animations. But if you are looking for an MMO that does it all, Rift is a game to check out.
According to Trion free players will have access to most content including regions, quests and so on, while owners will receive additional perks. And if you buy the game cheap now, you will receive those perks as well before it transitions into F2P.
