Rift Lite: Play For Free Until Level 20
This is another great move from Trion. In order to survive in this ruthless, unforgiving MMO wasteland, they need to adapt. Giving players up to level 20 for free should help with population issues. As soon as I get a chance, I plan on giving it a try! Other games (like World Of Warcraft) have done it. Age of Conan had something similar but it ended up paving the way for its Free to Play system. Will Rift end up doing something like this? Only time will tell.
For those of you that would like to know more about Rift, check out Reve’s Impressions. I can’t remember a game that had such a smooth release.
