How’s 100% off for a sale? Today Trion announced their Thanksgiving Day sale and are giving away copies of RIFT for free.
Looks like Trion’s usual sale price of $4.99 wasn’t low enough to entice gamers, so they dropped the cost completely. The Ashed of History Edition is also on sale for $10.00.
You know the first step to making a game free-to-play is to make the game free, so check-mark that. Honestly who is going to buy this game once the sale ends? No one, so I foresee in the near future RIFT being free permanently.
While TRION recently stated they have absolutely no plans currently to go F2P, giving your game away for free is a pretty big step. I mean WoW has been out for 7 years and they still charge new players for the game. RIFT’s only been out for 9 months or so and it’s already free. I’ll put my money on RIFT going F2P before its two year anniversary.
