Rift subscription fees lowered

Trion Worlds has dropped the subscription price of its PC MMO Rift with bigger savings given to those who pay annually.

An annual subscription previously cost 71.88 per year – or 5.99 per month – but this has now been lowered to 59 per year. This works out at 4.92 each month.

A six-month subscription is now 6.49 per month, or one payment of 38.94, down from a monthly fee of 6.99 or 41.94 every six months.

The three-month subscription remains the same at 7.99 per month or a fee of 23.97 every three months.

Rift went on sale in March 2011. The PC fantasy online RPG is one of a handful of big subscription-based MMOs on the market including World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

A beta version of the game’s mobile iOS app went live earlier this month.

Many MMOs over the past year or so have adopted a free-to-play model such as DC Universe Online, EverQuest II and Aion.
