With the immense presence and competition put forth by free-to-play games, subscription based MMO’s have gotten creative when it comes to keeping their paying customers happy. Trion has taken several measures to keep the barrier of entry to its MMO Rift as minimal as possible. Earlier this year it was announced that new players who wanted to try Rift when the newest expansion, Storm Legion, launches later this year would receive the base game as part of their expansion purchase. Now Trion has unveiled a deal for players who currently play and subscribe to Rift.
Between now and the launch of Storm Legion, any current subscribers who purchase a year’s subscription to Rift will receive the digital download of the Storm Legion expansion for free. But that’s not all. There are a couple of other perks as well.
That awesome mount up there. That’s Landslide. We caught a sneak peek of him during one of the Rift live stream events a few weeks back, and he can be yours when you purchase the one-year subscription to Rift. Players will also receive the in-game title “Stormbringer” to show off as they prance around on their new pony…err…giant horned mount thingy. Oh, and the mount and title will be available immediately. As-in, right after you place your order.
The price tag for the one year subscription will run you $119.98, which if you do the math is already over $60 cheaper than paying monthly for a year’s sub, plus you will be getting the expansion. If you think there’s a good chance you’re going to be playing Rift for a while, and are excited about the upcoming Storm Legion expansion, this deal is way too good to pass up.
