It’s been just over a week since RIFT went free-to-play, and so far it seems servers are packed with new and returning players.
The biggest feature change to the game is probably the new cash shop interface, which not only sells REX and currency items but has also become the unified vendor system for the entire game. Individual NPC vendors use this new shop system, and items that players used to have to travel around the game world to browse, like pets, are all listed in one location. Loyalty, the new veteran system, is also entirely contained in the shop.
Clearly it’s a huge addition to the game. Want to learn more about the new in-game store features? We’ve made a short video guide to the new interface for you below.
