    Default Press release - TRION DEBUTS 7-DAY RIFT™ FREE TRIAL AND ASCEND-A-FRIEND PROGRAMS

    TRION DEBUTS 7-DAY RIFT™ FREE TRIAL AND ASCEND-A-FRIEND PROGRAMS
    Ascend your friends and start earning rewards today at www.RIFTgame.com/ascend


    REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – May 10th, 2011 – Trion Worlds today launched two new programs designed to give gamers a free taste of the immensely popular fantasy MMORPG, RIFT™. The RIFT 7-day Free Trial lets players experience the besieged world of Telara for a full week at no cost, and the Ascend-a-Friend program rewards current subscribers who find recruits for the Guardian and Defiant ranks. The new initiatives coincide with the debut of RIFT 1.2, the latest and most extensive game update so far. RIFT 1.2 adds several features, including Facebook integration, new 10-person raid content, and three new dynamic zone events.

    “Since launching just over two months ago, RIFT has dramatically disrupted the online gaming landscape, giving players the most massive, dynamic, and engaging MMO experience currently available,” said Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer, RIFT. “With the Free Trial and Ascend-a-Friend programs, we’re opening the floodgates, inviting all into this amazing world to experience what gamers around the world already know – that Telara is the new destination for serious MMO players.”

    By signing up at www.RIFTgame.com/freetrial, would-be RIFT players can quest, PvP, and battle back planar invasions free for a full week. Free Trial players can upgrade to the full game anytime, taking their newly-minted characters with them.

    With the Ascend-a-Friend program, current RIFT players can give an unlimited number of 7-day passes to their friends. If a recruit purchases the game, the recruiter will receive one or more of the following awesome rewards:
    • Ascend 1 Friend – It’s like getting two friends for the price of one! If just a single buddy purchases RIFT, you’ll receive Courage, a fiercely loyal and utterly adorable canine companion.
    • Ascend 2 Friends – You’re immensely popular, and you know it. Demonstrate this undeniable fact by donning the glorious Trailblazer Hat, which you’ll receive after Ascending a pair of peers.
    • Ascend 3 Friends – You don’t get this many friends through charm alone. By bringing three new subscribers into the game, you’ll receive the Swift Ember Steed mount, a terrifying equine wreathed in flame that is sure to turn heads in Telara.

    Additionally, Ascended friends’ characters will be automatically added to the player’s Friends List, and both will gain the ability to summon each other once every 30 minutes.

    Is the ability to summon your friend every 30 minutes permanent?

    I like that this is being done for friends, but IMO it penalizes people who've played since the start together. For example, my wife and I have played since beta together, but we couldn't associate our accounts together like this. We'd love to have the ability to summon one another, but being as we were obviously playing together, it works out worse than if one of us has been playing, and then the other started.

    Could you allow some type of one-time association between existing accounts for the people who've been here a while? Probably no more than 1 or 2 other accounts associated this way, but it'd still be nice to have.

    Maybe I am reading into this too much, but I take it to mean that you could summon someone (anyone) on your friends list once every 30 minutes. The mechanic will likely be available to everyone in game, otherwise, what is the point of automatically adding the player you recruit to your friend list (besides the whole being able to find them and talk to them, etc). If you get someone to play, it is unlikely you would just abandon them to their own fate, but would add them (to your friends list) on your own and play the game some with them.

    Anyone else take it that way?

    It looks like the Trial code applied to my full account when I clicked a link to check it out... Is that bad?

    Log into Rift Account Management and click on Ascend a Friend. Screens of all three items are there.

    Question, does the friend have to purchase the game from the rift site or can they buy the full copy from a retailer or Steam in order for it to count?

    They can purchase Rift from the retailer of their choice and you will still receive credit
