    Trion's RIFT is officially Free to play fully now. Thoughts ?

    Hey there D3Scene members,



    Just thought I would post this here and spark a conversation amongst the community and also to see what everyone thinks about this.

    So.......

    What do you think about RIFT becoming completely free to play with no limits anymore ? If you have played the game before it would be a better response to this question obviously, but i would like everyone's input on this

    I played the trial and I thought it was a really cool game.

    Will there be any type of limitations though? Such as having to buy the game to play, like guildwars. Or will there be like premium accounts vs free etc?

    I got an email saying it is completely free. You will not have to buy a sub nor is there only a trial version.
    I guess it's worth to check it out, especially now that it's free.

    It is completely free now. When there was a trial there were limits obviously. As of the 12th I think is when it went fully free to play with no limits. If u guys start playing give me ur character name maybe we could meet up ingame or something.

    It's just the same as any other MMO out there.
    I would best describe it as a mix of WoW and Aion

    It has the feel of WoW but the look of Aion

    I played it a bit and it's an OK MMO.
    But this case just proves that it's not smart to buy MMOs any longer because most of them in the end end up being F2P which is disrespectful to the people that bought the game and payed the SUB for it.

    I wouldn't play the game purely because of the companies policy.
    I think we will soon see a lot of companies taking the tactic to first sell the game and have subscription and when the going gets tough they'll make it F2P or better say P2W with micro transactions.

    I wouldn't be surprised if people started getting scammed this way more often.
    To me it's the equivalent of a scam especially when they don't make any difference between the paid users and the free users.

    I tried it. It's neat on the variety of classes, though I feel the gameplay and UI makes it kind of a drag for me.

    I'll give it another try later on though.
