Beginning today, new and returning players of Trion Worlds’ MMORPG Rift™ can experience five major updates worth of content, including the massive new Ashes of History patch, for free this entire weekend. Over the past six months, the Rift development team has maintained an unprecedented post-launch content schedule, introducing three epic raids, a PvP warfront, duo dungeon content, countless updates and improvements, and much more. The free gameplay lasts from 5:30pm BST on Thursday, October 13th through 5:00 pm BST, Monday October 17th.
Players can get reacquainted with Rift in style with the new Ashes of History Upgrade and Collector’s Edition, available for £5/€5 and £24.99/€24.99 respectively. After applying the upgrade, subscribers will be able to summon Moneybags, a personal banker, ride Spindrel, a terrifying spider mount (because eight legs are better than four), and show off faction pride with a new tabard. The Ashes of History Collector’s Edition includes the new items, plus the Rift client and one month of game time.
Adventure in the world of Telara as either a noble Guardian or technomagical Defiant and enter a dynamic fantasy 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.
