21,879 Couples Set New World Record - Rift - MMORPG.com

On Valentine's Day, nearly 22,000 couples took the virtual marriage plunge in Rift. That's almost 44,000 players! As a result, Rift takes its place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most in-game marriages in a 24-hour period.  The entry will officially be published in the 2013 edition of the book.

“Establishing this record was a monumental achievement for our development team and community of passionate players, and I couldn’t be more proud,” said Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer on Rift and Trion’s CCO. “Ascended Weddings were a great way to lift the veil on Rift’s new ‘Gatherings’ feature, social experiences that bring players together in new and interesting ways. We look forward to expanding this great new gameplay element in the always-evolving world of Telara.”
