Omg, I’ve just seen on the rift main site. They have announced today that when 2.3 update is released, on 12/06, that rift will be free to pay!
I don’t know what that means for those of us who are subscribers, but it saddens me deeply as from what I can gather from previous games going free to play, they ebb and die out.
I for one am hoping this doesn’t happen, as I truly enjoy playing with my online family, but on a positive note maybe it’ll pull some old players out of the wood work :D, which would be nice.
Check out the main rift site for more details.
I have also started a new topic in the members section on the forum for your thoughts.
