Developer Blog Details REX System

Developer Blog Details REX System - Rift -

REX, or Rift Exchange, is the currency that Rift players will use to purchase items from the in-game shop. In a new developer blog, Trion's Bill Fisher gives the inside scoop as to how REX will work and how F2P customers can earn REX without ever spending a dime.

REX (short for RIFT Exchange) is one of the big experiments we’re launching with Free to Play – it’s an exchange currency that allows free players to earn RIFT Store Credits. REX will be available as items for purchase with real money on the new RIFT Store, and only players who have an account in good standing can buy them. By “good standing” we mean that you’ve had a purchase with us in the past that has verified you as being a real person instead of a gold farmer, spammer, or hacker. We *hate* those guys and don’t want to see them harm the in-game economy.
