In one last hurrah before RIFT‘s big conversion to free-to-play on June 12th, Elrar announced yesterday on the forums that until June 12th, RIFT will be free-to-play for everyone who owns the game. This is a continuation of last weekend’s event designed to give previous players of RIFT a chance to check out the expansion and the current state of the game.

Since you asked so nicely, I guess we could!

Consider it done. RIFT is now FREE to Play for all owners – everyone else can enjoy RIFT Free-to-Play when it launches with RIFT 2.3: Empyreal Assault next week, June 12!

Similar to last weekend, returning players will have access to all Storm Legion content except for the four new souls.

    WTF? “except for the four new souls”? You mean I can play my mage in all of SL, but can’t touch the Harbinger? That makes no sense at all, especially because I have been relying heavily on Harb during the weekend…

      If you’ve had access to the Harb during this past weekend, you should be fine since the same rules will continue to apply. The only players who should see the restriction are those who purchased Rift a while ago and don’t have the expansion. If you got a hold of the game via the Raptr promotion, btw, you have SL already. :)
