Trion Worlds has just announced that fantasy MMO RIFT will be headed free-to-play on June 12th. Though former studio reps were once adamant that the game would remain a subscription MMO, the team has apparently decided it can better compete in a F2P world by being F2P. The hybrid model will include an optional sub with fully free content like dungeons and questing; consumables, cosmetics, and even gear will make up the cash shop.

SOURCE

not surprising there. seems like a good model, not very restricted. although selling gear in the cash shop(although low level gear) seems iffy.

This..is actually going to put a dent into the MMO market. Rift has always seemed like a good game but that monthly fee was what kept it back it seems. The market is getting pretty saturated now redface.gif

I tried to put my big endian in her little endian but things got flipped up along the way

Everquest ruined MMORPGs for me. It was exciting it was unforgiving and it was HARD...All these new MMO's require that you just show up and you can get everything out of them, you don't even need a guild or a group anymore. If they make a game that doesn't hold your hand through the whole game I might try another MMORPG but WoW, Rift and even GW2 have all fallen victim to easy access which translates to stagnation and repetitivness.
I'm not saying EQ wasn't repetitive or a grind fest but no game has even come close to the end game challenges that EQ offered even the group grinds had concequences for people who got lazy or didn't pay attention to every detail.

I might consider lazing about in this game again, then. I loved the graphics and the storyline was at least decently interesting. I tried to get back into SWTOR recently, but having to create a RAM disk every time I want to play is kind of annoying. Especially when I already have a kick butt SSD and it's literally just shoddy coding. tongue.gif

I enjoyed this game 2 years ago and was also my first p2p game ever. It was my best experience and i also met nice peeps.
Since its going to become f2p, it will most likely be like Tera. Noobs join and screw everything but i personally dont care anymore as a i quit half year ago ^^
