RIFT Lite Released

I didn't even know RIFT was planning to have a Lite version of the game released, ever, but it's about time they had something of the sort. I played RIFT for four of five months and enjoyed it quite a bit. It is a MMORPG  that focuses on creative dungeons, challenging puzzles, exploration and planar invasions that can erupt in any of the major outside areas of the game. Underneath that all is some typical MMORPG features, but all of it is done very well and has new elements to make any stale old feature feel unique. You could be a bit put off by the high fantasy world of RIFT and the story is negligible compared to something like The Old Republic, but it does have a lot offer, especially for those who really like working with others all the time. RIFT has done pretty well for itself with some hefty sales and subscription numbers, but now you can play it for free up to level twenty with no restrictions. All you have to do is create an account and download the client to start playing. If you want to learn more about the game and some of my impressions from last March check out that post. Trion Worlds is doing something that many others have done, much like many of the ideas in the game itself, but they are adding their own touch to it by making this Lite version one of the friendliest "trial modes" out there. Check it out below.

Also, take a look at this video. It shows off some of the basic features of RIFT, like the whole Rift system, and some character creation. Thanks for reading.
