This RIFT fan trailer will elevate you to startling emotional heights

Here at Massively OP, we are not above indulging in our geek tooth with a fan-made trailer every now and then. Sometimes you just need to get pumped up about a game and can’t wait for the devs to take time out of their schedule to sell you on an MMO you’re already playing.

RIFT player Matt put together a rather well-done trailer for the fantasy game, pairing epic music to some of his in-game footage. It’s the kind of thing that you watch and then, without even realizing it, find yourself installing the game once more.

Check it out below!

Wow thanks for sharing my video was wandering why the views went up so much today. Rift is still a good game and I enjoyed levelling to 70 in the recent expansion. As for the video in my own worst critique and I wish I spent more time on it instead of one night haha

Great video Matt it does make you want to give it a go again, I was close to hitting the re-install button till i remembered back to a few weeks ago and something about Razer money…..

This didn’t do much for me other than give me a few flashbacks to my RIFT times. I found this one much more impressive:

Rift will always have a soft spot in my heart. Housing was my endgame, and did that for several years.

Too bad RIFT is such a hollow shell of its former greatness. Once upon a time it was a very solid alternative to WoW. Now, not so much.

Like the only real WoW alternative that has so far stood against the test of time (…most of them actually fell from grace by the 3rd year, if not sooner) is FFXIV now.

Love the vid. Kudos Matt!

Now, where can I get one made of my fave MMORPG? I have no artistic talent and can barely edit my posts here as it is. But, hey, Im willing to pay. Let’s call it pay 2 create! P2C FTW.

Ysayle was right

Nope. Still looks just as tedious as I remember.

Eliot was wrong, TESO isn’t the Thomas Kinkade painting of MMOs, RIFT is.

Nice video.
Man, I sure do miss Vanilla Rift.
I wonder if there are any private servers.

Rift had potential, but the game world felt completely dead, uninspiring and cramped to me, like a game without a soul.

But nice video anyway.

Rift was great until Nightmare Tide, Vanilla was flawless and Storm Legion was one of the meatiest expansions I’ve ever seen.

Exactly how I felt about the game. The whole world just felt fake and drab. Just a minor for instance, but in other games while traveling around and looking at the scenery I would see things like flocks of birds take off from distant trees, wild life interacting with each other (wolves hunting rabbits etc), minor things like this can add a lot to the feeling of a living world.
Warhammer online had the same “dead world” feel to it.

On top of that, like you said, they cram things into every single little space of game real estate. It’s like it’s sacrilege to just have an open grassland with a few critters roaming around in it. Everything has to be out to kill me, and every single inch of the world has to have a monster prowling it, or a purpose.

Left me indifferent tbh. Just random RIFT clips glued to epic music.
Let me show you a trailer that really got me installing other MMORPG in a heartbeat. It’s 13 years old but I still consider it one of the best fan made game trailers of all time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5LdPf2J_hs

Still gets me hyped. Can barely stand to play EVE. But that trailer certainly hits the right spots.

He did a good job with it, highlights how gorgeous much of the world of Rift is.
