MMO Rift went free-to-play in 2011, opening its gates to more players but also ushering in loot boxes and a store packed with items you could buy with real money to make the game a lot easier. After a long think (and no doubt influenced by player pushback against microtransactions), developer Trion Worlds is going back to its roots by introducing a paid subscription model for a server free of loot boxes.

The Rift Prime server will launch in Spring. We don't yet know how much it'll cost to join, but we do know that the in-game store will be "significantly reduced, with more of the current store-based items obtained through gameplay or removed entirely". Sounds good to me.



Not all of Rift's content will be available on the Prime server from the start—instead, players will start afresh and Trion Worlds will drip-feed existing content as players progress, almost like a new MMO, albeit with everything introduced at a much faster pace. The developer promises this progression will come "to an end in spectacular fashion", too.

A few facts from the blog:



Prime servers will progress through content at a more rapid pace than that of the original launch
"dynamically matching characters to their current zone's level"
"dungeons dropping loot specific to your character's true level"
profession caps available to a single character
participation awards that are unlocked across your account, even to characters on other servers



PvP will also be undergoing some changes in 2018 after the launch of the Prime server. This will include a new game mode and allowing servers to go "full PvP".

For PvE, players can look forward to the revamp of a classic raid and the 7th anniversary will feature some new activities for players.



As more info comes out about the new sub services, we'll be sure to keep you upto date!

For now, check out the latest trailer for the game and follow the link to check it out!
