If you’ve gotten into RIFT for a good amount of time, then chances are you’ve noticed that not everything is included under the umbrella of free-to-play. While the world content is unrestricted, there are several souls (classes) and gear types that are denied to the adventuring freeloader.
While RIFT sold each of these separately in the past, Trion Worlds has put together a new “Essentials Edition” bundle for players to obtain full access to all possible realms of character development. This edition is being sold for $50 and includes all of the extra souls from the first two expansions, the Primalist calling and its six souls, two bag slots, two earrings slots, and the ability to use Planeswalker: Water gear. Buying this unlocks all of these account-wide.
For reasons known only to Trion and certain elder gods, the studio is making the bundle available to everyone only through early May 11th (which is… tomorrow). After that, only brand-new players to RIFT will be allowed the privilege of paying for this pack.
