Latest Headlines for Rift

  • Bindings of Blood Readies the Beatdown for Players

    Yesterday Trion launched Rift's Bindings of Blood Tier 3 Raids, the brand new cutting edge (or bleeding) edge endgame content for Telara's most ardent PVE players. These brand new 20-person raids will test the willpower of even the most dedicated Rift raiders, as on the PTS not a single guild was able to fell the two big bosses: Greenscale and Akylios. Bill Fisher and his team are confident it'll be a different story on the live server, but players are always surprising them.

  • The Long-Term Impact of F2P

    When RIFT first launched, the idea of going free-to-play seemed like anathema to its design. Former Executive Producer and current Trion Worlds CEO, Scott Hartsman, made it clear that F2P was not something in the cards in the year of its launch. And yet, with the changing tide of the MMO industry, RIFT made the jump and officially dropped its subscription fee last year. MMO fans are again asking the question: How sustainable is free-to-play in the long-term?
